We’ve dedicated a Sunday and Monday evenings at 8 pm at our Wallasey Academy to Judo classes, allowing students to study a different style of Martial Art.
Run by 3rd Dan Judo Instructor Jay Thompson (Judo Jay!) you’ll learn how to execute throws, hold downs, joint locks and strangles from an expert.
Judo can be used for sport and self-defence and is a brilliant Martial Art for all ages. Our classes are currently for anyone age 8 years and up, but we are looking to add a class for younger students if there is a demand.

What is Judo?
Judo is a Martial art that was created in Tokyo, Japan, during the late 19th century by Professor Jigoro Kano. His new art was a distillation of Jujutsu techniques that could be practised at full force, safely. This art was created to be used by all, no matter of size, strength or gender. To be a form of self-defence using the two main principles:
- “Seiryoku Zenyo” – Maximum efficiency achieved with minimum effort
- “Jita Kyoei” – Mutual welfare and benefit
When an understanding of the physical principles of Judo has been reached, a sufficient amount of force applied in the correct fashion can throw any opponent, no matter how large or strong. With practice, Judo represents a problem-solving system with principles that may be applied to many facets of life.
