Camberley Judo Club - your first choice for martial arts training for all ages and abilities.

<?xml version="1.0"?>

Camberley Judo Club is unlike any other judo club in the country.


It is unique in that we train judoka from beginners through to Olympians, giving them the skills and confidence to truly excel. The martial arts club combines a friendly social judo club with an elite full time training group.


Our competition track record is second to none - we have produced several Olympic athletes and won 14 world medals! Players like Karina Bryant, current world silver medalist, 4 times European Champion and triple Olympian, train at the martial arts club daily.


We also pride ourselves on our social judo members, from beginners through to adults, who practice judo at Camberley purely for the fun of the sport.


Performance Director of Camberley Judo Club is Mark Earle, who built the club in 1988. Mark has been the GBR coach at three Olympic Games and also worked as a personal coach to Camberley Olympians at two others.


Luke Preston, a former British International and Commonwealth Games medalist, is senior coach and runs the elite training group.



Elite Training Group


The elite training group train three times daily. We have on site accommodation cooking and dining facilities. Judoka from GBR or abroad can train with the full time elite group for a number of weeks, months or permanently.



Advanced Juniors


Darcel Yandzi, French International and World Bronze medalist heads up the advanced junior programme. The advanced junior section can train up to 3 sessions weekly at the club and some even join in with the senior classes too.



Beginner and Intermediate Martial Arts Classes


Natalie Hall, another ex GBR competitor, runs the beginner and intermediate judo classes.


These are very popular classes with the youngsters and families, and our 8 week beginner courses are not to be missed for those looking to begin the sport.

In February 2012, said about Camberley Judo Club

My son aged 9 started judo last year and now goes to Camberley Judo Club twice a week. He loves it! Natalie Hall who takes the junior classes somehow manages to combine making it fun, personal and highly professional. Natalie used to be a member of the GBR team and is very good at explaining the techniques of judo at a level the kids will understand. At the other end of the ability scale the club has a team of full-time senior players who train three times a day and are likely to make up a sizable chunk of the Olympic team for 2012. If you Google the club you will find examples of other teams coming down from Scotland to train here because the standards are so high. Judo is great for kids. As well as giving them a good physical workout, it teaches mutual respect and self-discipline. If you have children who are thinking of taking up judo, with Natalie in charge this must be one of the best places to learn in the South East. Best of luck to the elite team for the Olympics!

Camberley Judo Club deserve all our support as they prepare for the 2012 London Olympics. They do an outstanding job in our community and for the country in preparing so many champions and future champions... And amazingly with only the minimum of funding!

Camberley Judo Club is an amazing institution. With virtually no funding from the Sports foundation, they hope to send 5 of the best judokas to the 2012 Olympics. I wish them the very best with their incredible ambitions.
