About our Club
Welcome to York Judo & BJJ, the premier grappling club in York Region. We offer high level Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes in a family friendly environment. There are classes available for children, teens and adults serving both recreational and competitive needs.
On September 1, 2017 our club changed its official name to York Judo & BJJ from Newmarket Budokan Judo Club. We have a rich history in Judo in the Budokan family which began in 1959 with the judo club here in Newmarket starting in 1996. It is important to us that we keep the tranditional foundation of our art and work to evolve to a new level.
We're extremely proud that York Judo & BJJ is also an official affiliate of Team Ascension and we regularly represent the team at all BJJ events locally, nationally and internationally. This affiliation adds to the richness of instructors available to our club and a standardized BJJ curriculum and teaching methodology.
We believe the fusion of Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu makes our members and competitive athletes more rounded martial artists. This is also the direction many top grappling competitors are utilizing at the International level.
Stop by today and see what makes us different.
Thank you for being part of our long history, and now becoming part of our new identity and tradition!
