EALING JUDO CLUB
RE-OPENING - APRIL 2021
After one year and 30 days of lockdowns, Covid, adaptation, online training and all manner of challenges, we are now able to reopen our full contact classes. At this time we are able to welcome 15 students per class, aged under 18.
Thursday 5-6pm / Beginners (red belts and white belts)
Thursday 6:10-7:10pm / Yellow belt and above, -18s.
All classes must be booked in advance via email to LouiseHMurray@hotmail.com and a strict Covid protocol will be in place to ensure we can remain open. More classes will be added back into the timetable, step by step.
We would like to thank all our families for their loyalty, support and flexibility during this very difficult period that we have shared. Without the club community this 13 months would have been so much harder for all of us. You guys rock!
Elbows up! Ready to greet from afar!
It was an incredibly tough decision, but following government and British Judo guidance, we felet it necessary to close our doors from 23rd March 2020, for the first time in 17 years.
We are now edging closer to a restart, gradually putting risk assessments and new biking procedures in place.
To our 50 Dan grades, our 120 current active members, the countless families whom have remained loyal, thank you. We refuse to let you down. I ask that you stay fit, eat well, stay hydrated and prepare to get back to it Very soon. To the wonderful humans whom have already made contact saying they will continue to pay their monthly fees or session subs, thank you so much for that. It will make a difference in the long run.
Sending much love and best wishes to you all for health, happiness and calmness.
After almost 17 amazing, crazy years in our home, Ealing Judo Club is slowly edging towards creating a new. permanent dojo space. Ealing Council is supportive, NGB development officers are supportive and we are making good progress with trying to establish a dedicated space. Of course, this doesn't come cheap in West London, so here we are at the outset of our very own mission impossible: Dojo-Quest! Please take a look at our page, including our 2016 club short film and SHARE IT with any friends, contacts, colleagues who may like to support us.
Many thanks to Nettle Media and friends for putting this together. You can cut and paste this URL into your browser
We send massive congratulations to Nekoda Davis, who became Commonwealth Champion at the Summer 2014 Commonwealth Games In Glasgow. In 2016 she represented Team GB at the Summer Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil. In 2017 Nekoda won a bronze medal at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. In 2018 she won a silver medal at the World Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan. Nekoda is now one of only 15 British judoka ever to have won 2 or more world championship medals.
Thank you to everyone who supported us gaining our Clubmark accreditation in 2013. We are now going through the process of renewal.
Congratulations to our current crop of GB Squad members: Nekoda Davis, Tohgo Kimura, Ryan Burt, Luke Davies & Maddy Birri.
Congratulations also to our England Squad members: Showgo Kimura & Mounir Baaziz.
In December 2019 Maddy Birri and Luke Davies achieved something incredible, winning both the Cadet and Junior (-21) British titles, aged just 14. This is extraordinary and we wish them all the best for the next stage of their judo careers.
Congratulations to John Hough who won a Commonwealth Grand masters bronze medal in Cardiff in January 2012. Also to Nekoda Davis, who won a bronze medal at the Junior (u21) European Championships in September 2013, on exactly the same day as Ammi Takahashi became our youngest ever British Champion, at the tender age of just 9

Congratulations to Head Coach, Jo Crowley. She completed the University of Bath's Foundation Degree in Sports Performance for Judo and also the the BJA's Fast Track Coaching Programme in 2008. Jo has in 2018 completed a Masters in Advanced Sports Coaching and her Level 5 coaching certificate at Sheffield Hallam University, having passed the level 4 and the PGdip in 2016.
Ealing Judo Club was named as a High Quality Skills Centre for 2008, 2010 and 2011. For 2012 the club recognition system has changed and so now we are one of only 20 clubs in Great Britain named as an England Squad Performance Club - this reflects the work we do, producing athletes at national and international level.
