Cedars Judo Club was started in 1963 as an evening class held in one of the rooms at the old 'Cedars' house on Shilton Road in Barwell. After several moves due to the club out growing it's venues it eventually ended up in the main sports hall at the William Bradford Community College in Earl Shilton. It's now one of the largest clubs in the area with 200 square metres of mat area.
We believe that most sports are great for kids and adults. However judo has got to be among the best of them all. Maybe we are biased but we think judo is rather special and unlike many sports it really is something that everyone can do, no matter what size, shape or age you are. Because of the vast range of techniques and ways of doing each technique, everyone can find something to suit them.
You don't have to be exceptionally talented, or have amazing physical potential ... any dedicated person can become a really good judoka ... and if they want it badly enough, even a champion.
Judo helps your fitness levels and is an all-over work-out. Any typical judo session includes exercises that improve your cardiovascular system, endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, core stability and co-ordination.
Many people find that lessons learnt on the mat help you in every aspect of life - increased confidence, self-respect, discipline and respect for other people.
