British Judo are pleased to announce that following Boris Johnson’s Press Conference on Monday 5th April, we have now received confirmation that England will be progressing to next stage of the National Roadmap.

This means that from 12th April, indoor contact judo for Under 18’s can FINALLY resume a year on from the initial Covid-19 lockdown. Judo clubs, coaches and participants can now move outdoor and online sessions into their normal club environments – adult indoor non-contact judo will also return with restrictions.

Finally, there is some light at the end of the tunnel, for what has been for many of you, a year of great change with some challenges along the way. Here at British Judo we would like to welcome everyone back into our clubs to the sport that we love, and more importantly have missed enormously.

To restart training and re-engage with your friends, please contact your judo club to find out more details on session times, Covid-19 procedures, and general information.

It is important to remember however, it has been a while since many of you have engaged in high intensity training. Therefore, start slowly and work up towards any grading or competitive events that you intend to participate in over the next 12 months.

Please note that this advice is for the British Judo Association and affiliates in England only. Non-affiliated organisations cannot practice under these rules.

Engaging in Covid safe practices is still paramount and we would like to ask everyone to ensure you follow government health and safety advice at all times.

Just remember, if you are planning to attend any organised outdoor training activities with a British Judo club, you MUST have a valid British Judo membership to ensure that you are insured against any injuries.
