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.

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.

TIMES:
From Wednesday 6th June, we are back at Andover Leisure Centre in one of the squash courts. Junior Judo starts at 19.00 hrs so please be there by 18.50 hrs as access is via a barcode pass to the rear of Merlins Kingdom.
