"Possible inspiration for Dickens' Lady Havisham, Hatton Place resident Lady Lewson despite owning a large rambling house, occupied just one room and told her servants never to move anything. Obsessed with catching a cold, she ordered that none of the windows should ever be washed fearing that they would break and let in germs!"

I love the buzzy urban feel of EC1 and knowing that I am within touching distance of all that is happening...

Finsbury Judo Club

insbury Leisure Centre
Having coached Judo to Juniors over the past 30 years. I have found that there are very different approaches to how we can get the message from Professor Kano across to our young Judoka. Kano's view of Judo was quite clear. It was to be a good source of fitness, fun and discipline, rolled into a sport which could be enjoyed safely for all ages. With it roots in Ju-Jit-Su or ( Ju-Jut-Su) as a fighting Art, we find an easy cross over into Kano's Judo. Website
