Just a quick reminder as we move into our next phase of grading, the BJA has published a host of grading resources online. These include videos, and downloadable copies of Sho, Mon and Kyu syllabi.
Please make sure your contact details are up to date on The Dojo, the BJA’s online membership system – this is migrating to a new system starting this Saturday and will be off line for about three weeks. Details can be amended and new memberships taken out until end of day Friday.
Due to the Dojo outage, there will be a delay registering grades with the BJA – so please remember to bring in your licence book so that this can be updated with grade details. This will be the only proof of grade until The Dojo is back up and running.

Hampshire Judo is hosting the Southern Area intercounties team tournament this Sunday, 8 May.
This will be the first time the tournament has been held since 2019 due to Covid, and features an exciting new format with light and heavyweight junior teams and mixed sex adult teams.
Team judo is an exciting format, and is now part of all World and Olympic championships. Competition can often come down to the very last fight to be decided.
Court Lane players have featured heavily in events over the last twenty years – Brett Caswell, Andy Gould, Lewis Dolman, Isla Savellis-Fry, Chloe Lymer and Michael Churcher have all represented Hampshire – and this year will be no exception.
The event will be held at Eastleigh’s Fleming Park Leisure Centre.
It has been fantastic to watch the club bounce back after the Covid shut down, the mat is busier than it has been years. Lewis and Chloe have secured first medals for the club since we returned to competition.
We are keen now to grow the other side of the club, off the mat. We are looking for players. parents, former members and their parents who still have an interest, who would be willing to get involved in managing and shaping the future of the club.
We are looking to recruit to the following volunteer positions:
We always need people who are willing to help lay out the mats, take mat fees and run the register.
If you would be interested in helping out in any way , please speak to Tony, Kev or Craig.
