We are delighted to confirm the following new grades:
7th mon (orange belt)
As we are now have several mid grade players, we will be encouraging players to move up to later sessions – we wil speak to players individually over the next few weeks.
This will enable us to focus our coaching more appropriately.
Congratulations to Jeremy Allen, who recently graded to 6th mon!

Four of Court Lane’s novice players took part in a competition preparation event hosted by Holbrook Judo Club.
Referee David Tooby explained competition etiquette, such as entering and leaving the area, which belt to wear etc., and the importance of osaekomi and toketa. The scoreboard was also explained.
Players then took part in a round robin match, with explanation of the scores, penalties etc., as they occurred.
Our four players all behaved impeccably, and demonstrated some good judo skills. It was particularly pleasing to see them all developing over the course of their three or four contests.
- Noah Grainger – GOLD
- Alex Lane – GOLD (and quickest ippon throw of the day…)
- Jeremy Allen – BRONZE
- Oliver Jones – BRONZE
