Our club, which was started in Spain by 4th Dan Rodd Barkby and 2nd Dan Karen Barkby in 2002, is affliated to the British Judo Council. We ran classes in our own dojo, for children from 5 years old.
Rodd has taught judo for over 50 years, starting clubs and classes in schools in the U.K, and his original club from Leicestershire is still going strong today. During that time he has produced many British and International Champions, at both junior and senior level.
Karen a former British and International Champion has trained in Judo for over 30 years, now coaching along side Rodd and other qualified coaches.
We are fully insured, DBS checked and have up to date first aid certificates and qualifictions for teaching sport, judo and children.
We are now back in the UK, and running R.K.Judo from Newhall, Derbyshire. Please visit our other pages and see for yourself how fantastic Judo and our Club is.
