Fighting Fitness Judo was set up by head coaches Vince and Samantha Skillcorn in 2015 when they took over the longstanding Pyrford Judo Club. Vince and Sam have grown the club from around 80 members to over 700 members making it one of the biggest British Judo Association Clubs in the country. 

Our club is friendly and open to all - Children from as young as 5 can start Judo - We are part of the British Judo Association

Judo is a sport that every child should try, our sessions are based around building children's sporting skills from the ground up. We teach the children the key aspects and techniques of the sport and how to fall safely, but we also encourage acquisition of many skills which benefit overall physical development. Children will build strength, improve co-ordination and fitness whilst having fun along the way. Judo is a contact sport, which allows children to grapple with each other, which is one of the main attractions of the Sport for many children! To  ensure the children understand the true values of Judo we also teach them about the Judo Moral Code, which ensures they can practice judo in a safe and respectful environment. 

Fighting Fitness Judo Club prides itself on being pioneering, at the core of our coaching practices is a drive to be innovative and at the forefront of British Judo. Head coach Vince Skillcorn has an MSc in Advanced Sports Coaching Practice and specialises in developing children from grass roots through to international level. Vince's understanding of long term athlete development helps tailor the objectives of all classes, judo camps, competition and events.

Fighting Fitness Judo is one of the biggest British Judo Association Club's in the Country. Based around Surrey and its borders there are venues in Woking, Guildford and Hanworth, as well as classes in many school's throughout the area.
