Beginner’s information

The Sobell Judo Club runs a comprehensive teaching structure which caters for all ages. We allow children to start judo from the age six years onwards.

Age groups are categorised as follows:

  • Primaries: 6 years to under 10 years
  • Juniors: 10 years to under 16 years
  • Adults: 16 years + .

These classes are run for two consecutive weeks and are held in conjunction with the regular class.

We run regular induction classes for all beginners which are held once a month. The dates of these classes can vary according to demand. Dates are always advertised on the website. You are requested to register online for the induction classes. Once you register you will receive all necessary information and instructions about what to where and what you should expect during the two week sessions.   

  • Primary Induction Classes are held on Wednesdays 5.00pm - 6.00pm.
  • Junior Induction Classes are held on Wednesdays 6.00pm - 7.30pm.
  • Senior Induction Classesare held on Wednesdays 8.00pm - 9.30pm

The non-refundable fees are as follows:

  • Primary and juniors fee is £15 for two weeks
  • Senior fee is £20 for two weeks.

Once you have completed the two week induction course, you will then be required to pay a standard mat fee, every time you attend a session.

Please note: not everyone may be suited to do Judo for many reasons. Our judo instructors will assess you throughout the induction course and inform you to whether you are suitable.
