Blackpool Keidokwai Judo Club was founded in 1942 making it one of the first judo clubs in the country. The club and its teachings are closely aligned to those of the founder of judo Jigoro Kano. Whilst we ensure that students are aware of the latest rules and competition guidance, our focus is to teach a traditional Japanese form of judo, focusing on technique, balance and the development of skill through practice. We welcome new and existing players and provide a friendly environment to learn.

St Annes Keidokwai Judo Club was opened in 2015 by Current Fylde & Lancashire Coach of the year, Champion Black Belt; Ross Goodwin and within this short time, the club has produced multi-time National champions, International Competitors and individuals on paralympic pathways.

We welcome anyone and believe there is no barrier to taking part in our sport, no matter what gender, age, ability or disability.

We work to ensure that our classes are focused on meeting the needs of our students using a range of methods to ensure the classes remain both interesting and varied. The teaching style is focused on a collaborative style of learning. Even with our youngest junior players, we encourage students to not just learn techniques, but to understand how these work, and to experiment with how they can make these work for their style. This not only produces better judo players, but provides a good foundation for understanding movement, balance, and posture that is usable across a range of sports.

For students that are interested in developing as coaches, we welcome supporting them with this goal and are proud of our track record in this area. In 2011 we were the first club in the UK to have two young coaches (under 18) certify as Level 1 UKCC Judo Coaches and in 2014 have seen them both progress to certify as UKCC Level 2 coaches.

All our coaches are fully qualified British Judo Association coaches.

We have several Level 1, 2 and 3 coaches. We actively encourage experienced players to support our coaches as part of their own development and learning.

All coaches are enhanced DBS certified. This is regularly rechecked and validated.

All coaches hold current First Aid certificates that are regularly revalidated

All coaches hold current Safeguarding and Protecting Children certificates.
