Judo is back! It has been a long 12 months, hasn’t it? To celebrate judo’s return to the mat last week, we are thrilled to launch a range of exciting membership offers designed to get the youngsters back on the mat!

12 months is a long time, so if you are planning a return to the mat for you or your child, it is vital to have a valid British Judo licence to ensure that you are insured for your return.

Whilst U18s have returned to full-contact judo, we are counting down the days until we can hopefully welcome back our adult members!

As of today, there are three membership promotions being launched:

  • OFFER 1

    All members that renewed their licence over the past twelve months (between the dates of the first lockdown on 18th April 2020 through to 18th April 2021 will receive a four-month extension as a way of us saying thank you for supporting the Association. The extensions will take place over the coming days, meaning that members who have kept their membership valid for the whole of the lockdown period will have received a maximum of eight months extension in total.

  • OFFER 2

    Any lapsed member who renews their licence between today and 31st July will receive 15 months membership for the price of 12. (NOTE: this offer is only valid to members whose British Judo membership has lapsed).

  • OFFER 3

    We are removing the price of an Introductory membership (RRP: £16) until 31st July which means that all new members will have the option of claiming a free 90-day introductory membership to the Association before having to pay for a full membership. Full terms and conditions are available on our website.

These three offers are a thank you from everyone at the Association for your support through a troubling period for all across the country.

Next week we will be sending clubs a small digital marketing toolkit to help them promote the offers to their members.

Don’t forget, as part of your British Judo membership, you have access to:

  • British Judo liability insurance – vital for any injuries picked up during your return,
  • Grading – the opportunity to grade through the world-renowned British Judo syllabus,
  • Competitions – full access to British Judo competitions and events programme,
  • Membership Discounts – Access to our British Judo Association High Street discount portal which offers a wide range of discounts and vouchers codes for popular brands across the country – you can save the cost of your membership by utilising the portal for your everyday purchases!

Stick with us though! That light at the end of the long tunnel is in sight and we can’t wait to see you all again enjoying your time back on the mat! If you would like to query any of the above offers, please contact bja@britishjudo.org.uk.
