“The start of the academic year is approaching very fast, and coming with it, all its associated excitement: new members, beginners course, competition season and more socials…
We will be present at the fresher’s fair on Tuesday/Wednesday 6-7th October and have enthusiastic people ready to recruit new judoka, beginner and veterans alike!
On the following Saturday (10h October from 4:30pm), we will hold a taster session. This will involve getting on the mat, doing a judo oriented warm-up and some technical exercises. We will get advanced players to demonstrate throws and randori (sparring) that normally constitute usual judo sessions.
A beginner course will be on in Michealmas term. £35 all included: Judogi (judo uniform), BJA licence and mat fees. Beginners will be able to get the basics of the sport, pass their first grading and start sparring by the end of the term. All members are encouraged to participate in these sessions, especially higher grades to revise the basics and help out with the new-comers. They are the future of the club after all and if they train well, they’ll fast become good randori partners!
If you are a confirmed judoka, no need to wait for the taster session to come and train with us, we are already in business! Just turn up to a session! See training times here.
Please get in touch with anyone from the committee if you have any question.
Looking forward to another judo year!!”
