End of term, Varsity and the Coaches Award.

As Lent draws to a close we recognise the hard work put in by everybody at the club, especially our beginners who have continued for a second term.

Congratulations to Lamberd Beano who won the coaches award for 2016. Having started earlier this year, he competed against Oxford for the Varsity Men’s B team.

Our Women’s team also did a phenomenal job to retain the trophy. The match report can be found here.

We continue training through the breaks so we look forward to seeing you on the mat.

Start of Term

BUCS 2014-15 team photo

“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!!”

Marine Dupoiron – President
