Royal Air Judo Association

Welcome to the RAFJA website. We are here to help RAF servicemen and women to participate in the great Olympic sport of Judo. Whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned veteran, Judo offers a fantastic way to get fit, improve self-confidence, and develop the self-discipline and sportsmanship that separates it from many other sports. Most of all, Judo is fun, especially when you prevail against a Navy or Army opponent! Uniquely, Judo also offers a visible sign of ability and progress, culminating in the coveted black belt.

The RAFJA is supported by the RAF Sports Board, and has strong links with the British Judo Association, the governing body in the UK. Thanks to this, we can offer financial help with kit and tours. We have national and international class coaches and competitors in our ranks, dedicated to bringing out the best in our judoka. We also organize training sessions, competitions and international tours.

So why not give Judo a try? I've done it for over 30 years, and have enjoyed every session. Contact us and we'll do our best to help you achieve your goals through our beloved sport.

Sqn Ldr Sam Smithson
Chairman RAFJA
