WYJC was founded in 1973; our mission statement & club motto has always been 'Judo For All'. We have been providing excellent Judo training & coaching opportunities for over Forty Years now and we look forward to the next forty years of Judo service to you and our local Community.
WYJC was awarded the prestigious 'Sport England Club Mark Award' in 2008 by the Chairman of the BJA Mr Densign White and we have ensured that the high quality standards needed to achieve this award have been maintained and developed further through continued personal & professional development of all of our Judo Coaches.
All of our Coaches are fully qualified with the BJA and have full certification from the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS Certificates / Police checked), as well as being qualified & experienced First Aiders.
Our Coaching Team are all professional Judo Coaches who work for their living as full-time Judo Coaches in Schools, Colleges and Leisure Centres, but, work as unpaid Volunteer Coaches at WYJC in the evenings. Our Coaches also hold qualifications in Fitness Training and are experienced Self-Defence Instructors for Schools, Colleges & Clubs.
