Welcome to EGH

Welcome to the home of EGH Judokan, one of the premier judo clubs in the South Wales area.

Established in 1975, EGH Judokan has grown from humble beginnings in the Llantristant area, and now runs a comprehensive range of classes for all age ranges, including both children and adults.

EGH is a community run organisation, focused on providing top quality judo coaching for beginners through to advanced judoka (judo players). Our focus is to provide pupils with a safe environment in which to practice the skills and discipline that judo is famous for. With both male and female qualified judo sensei’s (coaches), we are heavily invested in providing the best possible experience for all our members.

Judo is a rapidly growing sport in the UK, having Olympic status, and is a great way to develop discipline, confidence and competitiveness.

Come and give us a go.


Want some more information? Or not sure if judo is right for you? Don’t worry, most people that do judo begin from scratch, with little or no knowledge.

One of the best things about judo is that it caters for both extremes; those that want to do it to stay fit, but also those that want to get to an elite level of sport.

But if you’re not sure, we recommend getting in touch and having an informal conversation with one of our qualified coaches. Or conversely, come to one of our classes and observe our sport in action.



Interesting in coming along to watch or participate in our classes?

You can find us at EGH Judo, Rickards Street, Pontypridd, CF37 1RD. Mondays and Thursdays between 6:30pm and 9:00pm.
