Saints Judo 2015-2016    

    Judo is a combat sport whose roots lie in the martial art of Ju-Jitsu. It was originally developed and founded in 1882 in Japan by Dr Jigoro Kano. Specifically, Judo focuses on a series of throws, hold-downs, strangles and armlocks as a means of subduing the opponent.
It is now practised as a sport all over the world, and, having been included in the Olympics since 1964, it is a highly competitive sport that hosts many competitions around the world.

    Of course, judo comes in many forms: It is practised for fun, for fitness, to socialise and for self-defence to name but a few reasons. No matter how or why one begins judo, it is a fantastic sport and a fun way to get involved in the university.

Our Club:

Whether you're a beginner keen to try out a martial art or a seasoned judo player looking to stay in shape, the St. Andrews judo club is the perfect group for you. Training three times a week, we are coached by the Commonwealth Games bronze medalist Connie Ramsay; thanks to her, our training sessions are instructive, hard, but also fun. As a group, we get involved in the social side of University sports, attending sinners, sports ball, and hosting club potlucks or hitting the pub after training. You won't find a better group to join in St. Andrews. 

For more information about the St Andrews Judo Club, look under the 'Activities' section.

Here is also a video with a mashup of highlights from different judo competitions; these are professional judo players and some of the highest level competitors you will ever see. Don't worry; none of us at the club are this scary but this is a taste of what judo can look like.
