Titans Judo Club in Clydebank are set to welcome locals to come and try the sport next month after moving into their brand new dojo.

The highly successful Titans, who have recently moved into their new home at 54 Kilbowie Road, in Clydebank, now boast a purpose-built floor at their dojo with the club keen to expand class numbers at all levels as well as welcoming new full-time members.

The club are opening their doors on Saturday, February 1, to give anyone interested in the sport the chance to go and try out their new facilities and learn more about the new classes on offer.

Titan has a proud tradition of producing top young judoka and this was clear in 2019 with medal success at the annual British Schools Judo Championships, local kids selected to represent Scotland at the British National Team Championships and further wins across regional competitions throughout the year. 

Titan youngsters then finished the year off in some style with British Championship success at the English Institute of Sport down in Sheffield back in December.

Paige Gilfillan, Sophie McNeill and Emma McCabe, under the guidance of coach Joe Timney, fought extremely well at the year-ending event as they picked up some valuable experience against the very best the UK has to offer, with McCabe going on to clinch a well-deserved silver medal in a brand new weight category.

Paige, Sophie and Emma’s efforts were rewarded with an invite onto the Scottish Judo squad with their Titan teammate Ethan Lambert also getting the nod to join the national set-up.

A club spokesman said: “Our aim is to provide every member with a great quality product in a fun and exciting way. Our classes are designed to improve a child’s physical literacy, not only for judo but for any sport.

“Titan has the family at the centre of the club and parents are encouraged to get involved and watch the classes to see the improvements your children make.

“Titan Judo Club has successfully completed and achieved the JudoScotland JudoMARK and attained gold level in West Dunbartonshire Leisure club’s accreditation schemes and is proud to use both logos.”
