AYAC Judo Club Liverpool

AYAC Judo Club was formed over 30 years ago. Originally based at Anfield Youth Activities Centre on Belmont Road we moved to Fairfield Centre on Sheil Road about 10 years ago. We are conveniently located near Liverpool City Centre. The Club has a fitted out Dojo, showers, changing rooms, toilets and a secure car park. We pride ourselves on being a family friendly club with players ranging from 8 to 80 years old.

The Club is a member of the British Judo Association and in 2012 were nominated as BJA Club of the Year. We didn't win but it was a honour to be nominated. The club is run by a small group of volunteers who give up their spare time each week to make sure the club runs smoothly.

We welcome all players young, old, new starters and experienced. Why not come along and have a go. The first judo class is free so what have you got to lose. We will even lend you a Judo Gi for you first few classes!
