    Why was this bill crafted? If we know the motivation and the forces behind it this could be used to the advantage of the bullshido cause.
    For all we know this could be a measure from the ignorant to crack down on McDojos.

    If you want to read way more than is healthy about this, look up the Independent Judo in the UK thread on Judoforum.

    I don't actually mind that the guy who is doing the coaching isn't a kiddie fiddler, and actually has some training in being a coach. Keeps the BS down.

    Should say I know sod all about the BJA quality of anything else. It was reading the quote and the attitude stunk.

    That would be great!

    I've spoken to some other coaches I know, and they heard about this a while back, but then information stopped flowing, so they kinda ignored it. But now they're also going to their respective "next levels" to find out more information.

    There are some petitions and what not, if we can get as many people on here as possible to sign them, then maybe people will take notice. The main one is a petition to have the standard and certificate made openly available to all MA's - which would stop the worrying from smaller clubs.

    The Certificate is a good idea, but allowing only one national body to take charge per sport gives a monopoly which is bad. The BJA and BTC may be ok but if you give them effectively Statutory Instrument status means that if they did start to go BS/McDojo (unlikely in judo but with TKD...) then you can't just break off & become independent you would lose your right to teach!

    The CRB check is good. A better way to tackle the rest would be an external training course that teaches warm ups streches etc. and the basics of teach; styles of learning, what works best e.g. breaking things down to steps, doing not just watching. Then an internal section on how to teach your sport/art, requiring a coaching instructor with a BEdu or PGCE from you org.

    Forcing every on to join a single org is not a good plan, karate is in there can you imagine a full contact katate style (name escapes me) being happy if they pick a point sparing org?

    This bill sucks. We need chunners etc to laugh at and feed our sense of superiority.

    You just can't do it can you? You have to have at least 1 post per thread bashing Chunners!
