Annual Mixed Martial Arts seminar with Mitt Master Matt at The Budokwai

We were delighted to host a seminar led by Mitt Master Matt Chapman at The Budokwai on Sunday 7th May. It was incredibly well attended, one person flew in especially from Washington! 
We look forward to hosting this exciting event next year. 

Busy Sunday at The Budokwai

It's been a busy day at The Budokwai this Sunday!

It began with a visit from the Nada High School Judo Club from Japan who attended the cadet practice. It was a fantastic occasion.

We then held a Senior Judo Dan grading, which was followed by a London Area training session.

The final event of the day was the Karate grading.

Thank you to everyone who attended one of our events today, especially all the Mums on this Mothers Day!

Sports First Aid

Thank you to all who came along to the Sports First Aid training held at the club led by coach Steve Fraser.  

Paris Grand Slam 2017

The Paris Grand Slam is a celebrated highlight of the global Judo calendar, and the 2017 competition did not disappoint. 

Many Budokwai members were in attendance and were able to connect with fellow Judoka from across the globe. 

The Budokwai Chairman Peter Blewett was proud to present Daniel Lascau with a Budokwai honorary membership, and Budokwai member and renowned Judo photographer David Finch captured the moment.
