Welcome to the Yorkshire & Humberside Judo Website.
We represent the Yorkshire & Humberside region of The British Judo Association and our aim is to provide the opportunity and encouragement to people within Yorkshire & Humberside to participate and reach their potential in Judo.
Within the Yorkshire & Humberside Area there are three county divisions, West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire & North Humberside and South Yorkshire & South Humberside. Each County having a committee made up of elected members representing the clubs in that county. There is then an Area committee made up of representatives from these counties, coordinating the needs of all the clubs in the Area in line with the policy of the British Judo Association National Governing body.
We provide equally for those who want to partake recreationally as those that want to compete to the highest level.
There is provision for competitions, Gradings and organised Judo sessions where club members throughout the Area can take part, with the added experience for some team members to compete abroad, gaining further experience.
Provision is made for those who would like to become coaches, referees or competition official. The latter being an opportunity for parents of children involved.
Although many members, both female and male, from this Area have achieved National and even Olympic level status, we try to provide a sport that not only brings participants a specific sports skill but also a disciplined mind and body to take forward into the community for the rest of their lives.
All coaches, referees, competition officials are properly qualified through British Judo's nationally recognised qualification.
Good communication outside the Yorkshire & Humberside Area as well as internal is essential and this Website is promoting that. It includes contact clubs in your county and also items of interest in the monthly Newsletter.
If you haven't tried Judo, I hope you will and find it rewarding.
