Quality coaching from passionate and knowledgeable judo coaches are vital to delivering high quality and enjoyable sessions for everyone who participates in the sport.
Coaching can start from assisting and supervising activities on the mat at your local club through to sitting in the coach’s chair at a major international tournament. Whatever level you are at you will be hands-on and will be passing on your judo knowledge to a range of participants.
Coaching requires a certain level of judo skills and knowledge of the sport. Coaches also need to be patient with good communication skills and an ability to adapt their teaching style to a range of different individuals.
The Southern Area Coaching Committee will support those in coaching roles by providing relevant events across the area.
Visit the Coaching Committee page for descriptions of the various coaching elements that the Southern Area can provide. The Coaching Resources page has links to the BJA coaching qualifications, revalidation, coaching Code of Conduct and online portal as well as access to Kata resources and videos.
