"Clerkenwell offers residents outstanding choice when it comes to the bars and restaurants and all so close to London's financial centre, too!"

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
