A Brief history of Dowty Judo Club
The Dowty Judo Club was formed some 40 years ago under the umbrella of the then Dowty Sports & Social Society and is a member of the British Judo Association.
Prior to 1981 the Club was located in the main Clubhouse on the Staverton site. In 1981 the Club built it's own Dojo with a permanent mat area, on the Staverton site where it still resides to-day.
The Club is currently involved in building another Dojo as the present one sits on land, which is to be developed. This project is a mixture of self help and hopefully, some help from the developers.
