EALING JUDO CLUB
After 13 amazing, crazy years in our home, Ealing Judo Club now feels the time has come to move on. Ealing Council is supportive, NGB development officers are supportive and we are making good progress with trying to establish a dedicated space. Of course, this doesn't come cheap in West London, so here we are at the outset of our very own mission impossible: Dojo-Quest! Please take a look at this page, including our recent club short film and SHARE IT with any friends, contacts, colleagues who may like to support us.
Many thanks to Nettle Media and friends for putting this together.

Ealing Judo Club was named as a High Quality Skills Centre for 2008, 2010 and 2011. For 2012 the club recognition system has changed and so now we are one of only 20 clubs in Great Britain named as an England Squad Performance Club - this reflects the work we do, producing athletes at national and international level.
