Training Session

There will be a training session between 9.30-11.30am led by a variety of club coaches.  All kyu grade men and women are welcome to join the session.  It will be an opportunity to learn some new skills and exchange ideas with other clubs.  The competition will follow in the afternoon. 

A friendly, fun and energetic atmosphere to help you develop your skills!!!


This is a Level Two competition and an event for intermediate players of limited experience.  It should be seen as an introduction to competition for newer players and a learning experience for all.  With that in mind positive coaching is allowed, but aggressive coaching and pressuring of referees will not be tolerated.  The competition will be run by club volunteers and the support of parents and coaches will be essential for the competition to be a success.  We expect to develop the correct competition etiquette and environment, therefore the competition standard judogi (see below), footwear and headwear is essential.



  1. Competitors must be members of the WJA/BJA and produce their senior licence on the day.
  2. Competitors must be 16 years and above on the day.
  3. Competitors must be between Novice and 3rd Kyu on the day.



  • Group A: Men green belt and below. -60, -66, -73, -81, -90, -100, +100kg
  • Group B: Women green belt and below. -48, -52, -57, -63, -70, -78, +78kg

  1. BJA Contest /Tournament Restricted Rules will apply throughout. Arm locks or strangles permitted.
  2. The WJA/BJA has Third Party Cover and all licence holders are also covered for Third Party Liability. Competitors should therefore ensure that they are covered for temporary disability and their personal property.
  3. We reserve the right to combine or alter categories if entries dictate. Groups will not be combined unless agreed by the competition controller and the players involved.
  4. If there is a large disparity in weights in the + categories, then extra weight categories will be created.



  • Zori or soft footwear must be worn to the mat edge and off the mat generally.
  • Female competitors must wear a plain white, short sleeved t-shirt under their judogi.
  • Players must wear a white judogi (no karate or jujitsu suits allowed).

Please Note: Players turning up in the wrong attire will be turned away on the day.  It is the coaches’ and players’ responsibility to ensure these basic requirements are met.


(Light refreshments will be available on the day from the club.  The leisure centre also has a cafe serving hot and cold food.  The consumption of your own food is also allowed.)
