Operating out of Hybrid we are proud to present Plymouth Judo Club.
The Plymouth Judo Club is one of the oldest established clubs in the South West of England, dating back to the very early nineteen fifties when the very word judo seemed mystical and frightening. A group of individuals used to meet at an evening class for judo in the old Plymouth Public School for boys (now part of Plymouth University) with an instructor from the marines. When these evening classes finished some of the players decided to form a club, so they moved to the Good Shepherd hall opposite an old police station in the Octagon area of Plymouth, which they shared with the local youth club. After a couple more moves they found premises in the Virginia House Settlement on the Barbican where the club was established & was to be their home for over thirty years. During this time the club went from strength to strength with both a senior & junior section that was the envy of the whole of the South West winning countless county, area & national honours.
Early courses at the club saw visitors including Teizo Kawamura from Japan, British internationals Doug Young, Alan Petherbridge and Geoff Gleeson the national coach. In 2010 the club became a registered charity (1137574) and in 2011 the club has had to move again due to a new road going though the old club! We settled into Hybrid Combat Gym and have been here since!
We look forward to welcoming both old and new members to the club!
