British Judo, in collaboration with highly experienced Competition Controllers and Referees across the country, would like to help our membership to refine their knowledge ahead of a potential “return” to events in 2021.
The online courses consist of three modules each and is open to all corners of the Association whether you are an athlete, coach or volunteer.
The theme of examining each criterion with current IJF guidelines as the basis will as it did before give participants the knowledge to interpret decisions within the current rule set to IJF standards. The refresher modules will be suitable for competitive athletes, competitive coaches, referees, technical officials and anyone else interested.
British Judo are becoming more optimistic about a return to competition later this year and would like to help refresh the minds of the membership on the fundamental principles of contest decision making. It is envisaged that all participants would benefit from these modules in some way, it is also hoped that attendees will acquire subtle contest management tips that may help them understand very tight matches more clearly.
Contest Rules are under continual review by the IJF in an effort to make our sport more dynamic, attractive, and enjoyable to more people. However, if any of us have difficulty understanding the current interpretations, it has quite the opposite effect as we don’t understand the results, so refreshers are highly recommended. The refresher modules will cover many of the changes in this Olympic period, and other pressing questions on the same subjects may be asked for clarification at the end of the presentations.
The three modules will be held on the following dates (all running at 19:00-20:30):
