With judo training returning for all age groups this month, we would like to bring you further advice regarding the restart of competitions and events.

Our Events team have been working hard behind-the-scenes, and have a devised a strategy for the remainder of the 2021 to allow members to return to competitive action safely.

The advice has been collated following feedback from various stakeholders in the community, our Performance team and our Insurers. The structure and process has been devised considering the various stages of our return to judo following the lockdown periods. This has resulted in the different levels of competition being available to members under the age of 18, before opening up to senior members.

Key Dates:

Under 18s:

Not before 19th July – Level 1 and Level 2 competitions for Under 18s
Not before 16th August – Level 3 and above competitions for Under 18s

Over 18s

Not before 30th August – Level 1 and Level 2 competitions for Over 18s
Not before 27th September – Level 3 and above competitions for Over 18s

Competing too quickly after such a long break can result in serious injury so to help minimise this issue, our Events team are requesting that you complete a Training Log to ensure that you complete the relevant number of training sessions before competing.

If you have any questions regarding a safe return to events and competitions, please contact our Events team at events@britishjudo.org.uk
