Judo Club (CUJC)
The Cambridge University Judo Club, founded in 1906, is the oldest Judo club in Europe.
In recent years the Club has gone from strength to strength, with thirteen Cambridge University members competing in the BUCS Judo Championships in February – achieving our best medal haul in years, with each fighter winning at least one fight in their category.
The Club celebrated the 90th anniversary of the inaugural Varsity match in February 2020, which in 1930 was the first formally instituted competition outside of Japan. Cambridge won the Men’s A trophy after ten years of Oxford victories, with the Men’s B team and the first competitive Women’s City team also taking home their trophies in an exciting day of quality judo.
As a mixed University and City Club, run mainly by students, we endeavour to keep membership fees for students down in order to ensure that the sport remains accessible to all. Our membership fees cover the costs of venue hire, subsidised competition entries, transportation, and coaching, on top of which members are required to pay for their kit, British Judo membership, at least half of competition entry fees, and gradings. We are seeking additional alumni support in order to secure the future of CUJC and ensure that judo remains a sport that all members of the University can participate in. With your regular support, we endeavour to build on CUJC’s recent successes and to ensure that Judo remains accessible to all.
