Edinburgh Judo is the home of ‘the Gentle Way’ in Edinburgh and it’s surrounding areas, and we have promoted excellence and growth in judo from grassroots to Olympic level since our foundation in 1965.

Our club ethos is that of friendship, effort and personal improvement in a warm, safe environment and of enabling the community to access not only sport, but also the benefits that a healthy lifestyle can bring.


To introduce judo to children and adults of all ages and abilities in a fun and dynamic way, offering all members avenues of opportunity through which they can have a life-long enjoyment of judo. Edinburgh Judo aims to deliver the very best coaching to all our members within a safe and accessible environment. Judo is a unique sport:

  • All age groups can take part
  • Both men and women can take part
  • Most disabled persons can take part
  • It is inexpensive
  • It is a year round activity

But most of all, people do Judo because it’s FUN!


“Edinburgh Judo has so many fantastic attributes. The coaching standard is exceptional, the judoka are always challenged & learning. The judo values that permeate the club teach valuable life lessons as well as the sport. As a parent it is a pleasure to spend time in such a bright, happy place, our whole family is now involved in some way.”

“Nathan is this happy before his journey from West Lothian to Edinburgh for his Saturday morning judo class. Nathan started judo in January this year and everyone at Edinburgh Judo Club has been very friendly and welcoming. Nathan enjoys being introduced to new judo techniques through fun games each week.”

“Kirsty, started judo at The Edinburgh Judo Club just over three and a half years ago, she absolutely loves it! The sport is superb for teaching kids discipline, taking instruction, and generally being active. It builds confidence and respect. I would recommend Judo to everyone and recommend Edinburgh Judo as the place to do it.”

“From the moment we stepped into the club, we were made to feel at home. Warm, friendly and caring, the coaches and staff make you feel confident that you are in the right place. The level of instruction is very high, yet tailored to each individuals ability. As parents we are very happy, and believe our kids are in safe hands at Edinburgh Judo”
