Wolverhampton Judo Club

Wolverhampton Judo Club is one of the most successful and respected Judo clubs in Great Britain having produced several world class players particularly in the 70's, 80's and early 90's under the guidance of Mac Abbotts and Dave Brooks. Today, Mac and Dave are still involved with the Club as Chairman and Treasurer and now have ex-players Coaching and looking after the future development of the club. The Junior Members are thriving and achieving many successes in competitions under the coaching of Billy Kelly with success at European and National level.

Following the 2004 Olympics, the BJA was totally restructured and Mac was appointed to the position of High Performance Coach based at the Walsall Campus of the Wolverhampton University which means that he was not able to spend a great deal of time at the club as his new duties took up the majority of his time.
