Taek Won Do seems to have become very popular here also in the past number of years. There are several clubs around Cork.

Here are 2 websites I found:

www.irishjudoassociation.ie

www.muaythaiireland

Perhaps if you contacted them directly, they would be able to give you the best advice.

You´re welcome Lena. I haven´t heard of any wrestling clubs in Cork but that´s not to say there aren´t any. You could try looking on the website ´boards.ie´ under ´sport´.

I know that some Judo clubs hold their classes in school halls or community halls. I´ll keep an eye out for you and if I get any details I´ll let you know.

Great news!! There´s a judo club in U.C.C. and another one in Ballincollig. There are bound to be several others. If you google the above, details should come up for you.

Thank you very much
I already contacted through email with Ballincollig Judo club.
But wrestling I can´t find unfortunately as my son is in his current middle school team for three years already and doing it very well, in his weight category always the first places(:
We want him to continue wrestling but I don´t know if it;s possible in Ireland, Cork.

I presume if your husband is coming to Cork to do research, you will probably only be here for a couple of years. If your son is good at wrestling, then he will be able to take it up again when you return to the States. In the meantime, he may be able to get to sample other activities here that he may not have the chance to do over there. The Judo sounds promising too.
