Willesden (UK) Judo
Does anyone train with these guys? They look totally legit and I'm going down on Wednesday to have a go.
I've trained with/fought against guys from that club a good few times and can certainly confirm it is one of the top ten clubs in the country, and has been for a long time.
Also, as you can see from their front page, they've enjoyed international success with McKenzie, Badrick, et al.
Am I being a muppet, or do they not actually have where/when they train on their website?
Willesden is a level 10 club.
Don't know how much structure they have in place for taking on and developing adult beginners.
I would strongly advise giving them a call before hand to check which sessions are suitable for a beginner and so that they have some warning that they're going to have to accommodate a newbie in the session.
I couldn't find it if they do. The BJA club finder lists their session times as:

They apparently train at Willesden sports centre.
Contact number is listed as a Lloyd Alexander on 07914360714
Their site's a bit spastic, this: http://www.willesdenjudo.net/training.html indicates that Wednesdays are adult beginners, but I'll give Lloyd a call and see what I can find out.
Replying since I can't seem to edit anymore.

I've spoken to Lloyd and he's told me that adult beginners are Wednesdays 19:30-21:00 at £5 a session. Gi jackets and belts can be provided if you need them.
I'll be heading over next week.
