Team Bath Judo Club is dedicated to helping players to achieve their goals, whatever their ability level.

Team Bath’s coaching programme is led by Head Coach Juergen Klinger, a 7th Dan judoka and former Assistant National Coach of the German Judo Federation. Among the athletes he coached before coming to Bath were Franck Wieneke, who condemned Britain’s Neil Adams to silver at the 1984 Olympic Games.

Juergen has been coaching judo since 1979 and joined Team Bath in 2006.

Inspiring the next generation

We also host a British Judo England ExCell centre for talent development, and offer our own Team Bath Futures talent development programme.

Team Bath Tribe, meanwhile, provides the perfect introduction to the sport for children and young people as well as the opportunity to have a go and improve their skills.
