This 2-day kata course will cover all aspects of Nage-no-kata on the Saturday, and all aspects of Itsutsu-no-kata and Katame-no-kata on the Sunday. Participants will be tutored in these kata by Yoshihiko Iura-sensei, Kodokan 8th dan – an internationally recognised kata expert.
An opportunity will be provided in the late afternoon, for those who wish to take BJA Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 Kata Examinations in the kata taught on that specific day. Only holders of Level 1 may be examined for Level 2, and only holders of Level 2 may be examined for Level 3. Only Tori will qualify for a certificate.
This weekend course also covers the requirements of Sections 7, 8 and 9 of the BJA Technical Dan Grade syllabus. Those participants who wish can be continuously assessed for Section 7 on the Saturday, and for Section 8 on the Sunday. An Attendance Certificate from Sunday’s Itsutsu-no-kata course satisfies the requirements for Section 9.
Those judoka not wishing to take any examinations/assessments are still very welcome to attend the course.
Please wear a White Judogi only – strictly no other colour or reversible judogi to be worn
Participants holding a grade of 6th Dan or above are requested to wear a black belt
The British Army are providing their excellent facilities free of charge to the course organisers, and in view of this all military personnel serving in the Armed Forces will be able to attend for free. Military judoka must still book on the course with an administration fee of £5 per day to cover attendance certificates and other resources such as handouts. To obtain the relevant discount code to book on, please contact Major Jim Crompton – Secretary, Army Judo Association.
