Peterlee Judo Club 878


We are a British Judo Association Judo Club, Northern Region, who has been running since the 1960’s in Peterlee. We have been stationed in 4 different locations in the past 50 plus years but always in Peterlee. We have in those years served our community by training hundreds of people in the Martial Art of Judo and in the spirit of the founder of Judo Mr Jigoro Kano. Currently we have our Dojo (training area) at Peterlee Leisure Centre and train on Monday 18.30-20.00hrs and Thursday 18.30-1930hrs. At present we have two Dan grade (black belt) instructors Mr David Francis 4thDan and Mr John Devlin 2nd Dan, both who are National A Grade Judo Competition Referee’s with a combined 100 plus years of Judo experience. We have at present 8 adults and between 20 to 25 children training at the Dojo and an age range from 4years to 73years. Please check our Peterlee Judo Club Facebook page for more information.
