Women in judo have a long tradition and here at Cambridge university judo club we have many enthusiastic female judoka, both university and city players. Recent achievements include winning the women’s trophy at the 2013 varsity match. Apart from providing an excellent training facility CUJC provides a very friendly and social atmosphere with lots of activities off the mat.

Judo is not only good for self-defense and self-confidence. Building up strength, stamina and speed, judo is a great sport to sharpen up your general fitness level while being fun as well.
Common misconceptions about women in judo:
“I am a woman; I am not strong enough to do judo…”
- Technique beats force. Judo is largely based on general physical principles and by applying the right techniques you can even beat guys.
“There will be nobody to practice with…”
- There are normally quite a few women training already at CUJC. In the last years we had nobody who couldn’t train because there wasn’t anyone in her size.
“I am not so athletic…”
- Judo allows every player to meet her own challenges at her own individual fitness and ability levels, making it a fun experience for everybody.
“I don’t want to fight with guys; I am afraid they will hurt me…”
- Okay, judo is a contact sport and from time to time you will find yourself facing to train with a male judoka. However, in normal practice sessions they will take extra care when fighting with women especially beginners. Our coaches will make sure not to pair you up with someone who can just squish you. And if a guy would ever hurt you on purpose during training we will make sure he deeply regrets it…
So why not come along and give judo a try or continue to train at CUJC.
