About Barnet Judo Club

Barnet Judo Club was founded by Bryan Marcus over 30 years ago, as a non profit making family and community-based club. The club is affiliated to the British Judo Council (which, itself, is an affiliate body of the British Judo Association). The BJC and BJA organise a considerable number of events throughout the year which our club members attend.

Coaching at the club is currently led by Simon Mazzullo (7th Dan), Lukasz Klimek (4th Dan), John Burke (1st Dan), Marios Potamitis (1st Dan), Chris Grilli (1st Kyu) & Mark Lewis (2nd Kyu), with other coaches assisting. You can find out more about our coaches on the Our Coaches page.

All our coaches have full up-to-date qualifications and maintain annual coaching registration with the BJC.

Barnet Judo Club has previously attracted and featured visits from several high profile Judoka (players), including Jane Bridge (8th Dan, 1st Womens u48Kg World Champion, 3 x Womens u48Kg European Champion), Alan Carlisle (5th Dan) and Nobuhisa Hagiwara (Kodokan 7th Dan).
