Coaching

The Judo Club are fortunate to work with Commonwealth Games Bronze medallist and professional coach Karen Cusack once a week, with fully certified student coaches leading the remaining sessions.

Once students have achieved 2nd kyu (blue belt) they may pursue their first coaching qualification, with courses organised through the club. This is a perfect opportunity for members to give back to the club and hone their own understanding of the techniques. UKCC Level 1 and UKCC Level 2 coaching qualifications are available through the club.

Training times

All club training sessions take place in the Sports Hall at the University Sports Centre.

Regular training sessions typically start with a 20-minute warmup, followed by either work on technique, competition skills, or randori (sparring), and always conclude with stretching. Morning randori sessions include a short warmup followed by sparring.
