Aim: To provide an all embracing Judo service for members of the Southern Area.

1 To organize events
2 To provide coaching courses in each category for officials, coaches, players
3 To safeguard and distribute the financial resources allocated by the BJA
4 To represent the Area’s interests nationally and to foster contacts with other Areas and countries.
