All have attained FPJ Judo coaching qualifications, have had Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks completed and hold first aid qualifications. In addition, Sensei Raymond has passed the NVQ Assessors Award.
No mention of grades or formal qualification mentioned above can describe the breadth and depth of experience held by these instructors. This coupled with their enormous enthusiasm for Judo makes for a winning combination.
Amongst our regular visiting instructors are two 5th Dans. We are also visited from time to time by people wishing to become instructors who teach under our guidance or maybe a 1st Kyu wishing to pick up a few tips to improve their chances of attaining their 1st Dan black belt
Amongst the resident instructors we have: British National Contest Champions, International Kata Champions, Area Kata Coaches and South London Area Squad Coaches. Our instructors train and teach judo throughout the UK and Europe. Amazingly, four of our instructors have demonstrated Kata in Japan, the home of judo.


The Aylwin Judo Club Dojo is a member of the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai (DNBK) based in Kyoto, Japan. Four of the instructors are also members of the DNBK. DNBK individual membership is restricted to Dan grades. i.e. Black belt and above.

In Great Britain the Aylwin Judo Club is a member of the British Judo Council, South London Area. For more information on the activities and clubs in the South London Area visit the South London Area Judo site.
