    Check out "Eddie's" - Leeds Martial Arts.

    He has hundreds of posters in the shop, so I don't think it would be hard to find one Judo school.

    If you look closely on his wall, you might find a piccy of moi :)

    If you've not found a judo school yet, why not pop up to John Smeaton school on Thursday evening 7-8 for ju jitsu??

    We do mainly ju jitsu but some judo as one of the instructors is also black belt in judo........

    Try this link: Directions

    Smeaton Approach, Barwick Road
    LS15 8TA

    You'll have to zoom out a bit. Basically, it's up York Road, past Asda on your left, past Burger King on your left, second left at roundabout, past Netto on your left, thought the roundabout, straight up past a new housing complex on your left and you should see the school on your right about 200 meters further up, take a right onto Barwick Road for about 100 meters and take a left into the school car park. Into school and up stairs, turn left at top, then right and you've arrived!!

    Thursday evenings from 6-7 for juniors and 7-8 for seniors (although some intermediates train for the full two hours). Cost £4.50.

    Sensei Patrick and Sensei Mike run the club; myself, my partner, Jackie Faz andare Assistant Instructors.

    There's usually about 35-40 junior/intermidiates and around 8-10 adults.

    It's a very welcoming and inclusive club. NO machismo or egos!

    Hope to see you there.......
