Jason runs classes at Aberdeen Judo Club and likes nothing more than a good hard training session. His enthusiasm, talent and precision are the bedrock of our excellent judo club.

Our Special Needs class has been running since 2009 and is still going strong. Our members range from 7 years old to adults and have a wide range of disabilities.

Our coach is Steve Carson (2nd Dan) and he is assisted by Debbie Morrison (1st Kyu).

We meet on Mondays from 6.30pm - 8pm at the Beach Leisure Centre. Click here for more information.

In recent years our members have gone from being novices to being picked for the SN GB Squad. They have travelled all over Britain and competed in Holland and Ireland.

We would like to thank the coaches for giving up their time.
