Club History

Shuzoku Judo Club was established in 2010 formally known as Leighton Corinthians Judo Club established in the early 1990's. The club traditionally runs on Saturday mornings and teachers from the age of five upwards and boasts a club membership of over 60 players.

The club is run by Judo coaches and competitors Kyle W.F Perry and Robert Aston. The two started their Judo career as young boys at the club and have been dedicated members ever since. Shuzoku has quickly become one of the largest clubs in the Home Counties and brings in medals from all round the UK.

We have one of the largest mats in the area and produce some of the highest ranked players in the county.
