    Getting into Judo (UK Residents)

    JNP I wasn't sure where to post this as its about starting Judo, but if I post it in the JMA no one will read it and its aimed at people who don't do Judo so this was the best place I could think of.

    If you've ever wanted to get into Judo, but have been concerned about being thrown in at the deep end and being the only noob on the mat, well you're in luck.

    The BJA is continuing its quest to become less useless and increase participation in Judo by running a series of national Adult Beginner courses.

    These courses run for 10 weeks with 1 session a week.

    You pay £60 for the course, for which you get:

    10 lessons
    British Judo adult licence
    A judo suit
    Your first grading.

    That's a package worth £110 massively discounted down to only £60, so its a huge bargain.

    Not only is it a great deal, but its also a fantastic environment to learn Judo in, because it will be just you and other adult beginners.

    No vicious contest dan grades, whipper snapper kids or other dangers and annoyances to spoil you day.

    You can book onto the courses online:

    https://www.onlineentries.co.uk/events/bja/ABC.php

    Or you can pay by cash or cheque at your local club.

    So by now you should be super exicted and wanting to know where you can start.

    Here's a comprehensive list of every club in the UK that's offering the course, note not all clubs are offering it.

    All contact details are correct to the best of my knowledge.

    I'm guessing this is the same deal they were running here last Sept (a few lines down the page):

    http://portlandjudo.blogspot.com/p/events.html

    I'd probably have signed up but I missed the start by a couple of weeks. Is it a standardised course nationwide?

    You can always just go along and start Judo anytime. This course is just to act as an encouragement.

    Its not a standardised course, as far as I'm aware, the content and structure is left up to individual coaches.

    They're rotating it around the country and various clubs. The first incarnation had a different set of clubs involved. Although admittedly no clubs from the North East.

    Maybe your club could get in contact with the BJA and volunteer to be part of the next round.

    I'm already with the BJA so am paid up and suited up but want to just add how much of a bargain £60 is. If anyone is thinking of getting started and has one of the above clubs near them DO IT, it's a steal.
    "Won't fight me in the ring? Don't fight me on the street."
    Paraphrased from Bullshido.

    "You can't judge Martial Arts until you feel the joy of kicking someone in the face and not go to prison for it."

    Yes, they do (I know the page and have already found a club I will be trying next week). I was talking about the programme you guys have in the UK.

    So if you've ever thought about trying Judo out, but have hesitated and live near one of these clubs. Then you no longer have any excuses.

    If you don't live near one of these clubs, fear not, there will be further rounds of beginner courses later in the year and at different locations.

    It's a lot of bang for the buck...10 weeks for 60 pounds and you get a Gi and your yellow belt, too? Wow.
