About us

International Bushido Association (not for profit organisation) has been training and teaching traditional Japanese Judo & Ju-jitsu at the Andover Leisure Centre since 1976.

All instructors at I.B.A Andover are volunteers and hold current enhanced CRB / DBS checks performed to enhanced level.

JUDO

Andover Junior Judo (Kyushindo) for 6 to 16 year olds is a super club for kids – teaching them agility, balance, coordination, confidence and discipline. It also greatly increases their confidence and provides an amazing opportunity for them to connect and make new friends. We’re a friendly bunch so to find out more just pop down and see us on a Wednesday night at Andover Leisure Centre, or leave a message on our Facebook page.

Children between 6 and 16 are welcome to come along for a free taster session. They should wear comfortable clothing – t-shirt and jogging bottoms/leggings.
