Thank you Lulu for a well received Judo masterclass in Goole.

Ne-waza and tachi-waza demonstrations were broken down well helping all get to grips with what was shown.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, we'll be happy to have you back for another in the future.

Alan Medley retires as Y&H Judo referee representative

Alan Medley retires from active referee duties after over 50 years.
Alan has been very dedicated to refereeing and the Yorkshire Judo area for over 50 years.
Cameron McDowall has some big shoes to fill!

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.

We provide equally for those who want to partake in Judo 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.

The BJA Yorkshire & Humberside area will endeavour to support players who wish to become coaches, referees or technical officials at events.

If you'd like to get involved with volunteering at events in an official capacity or more casually you'll be very welcome, just get in touch to find out about volunteering opportunities.

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.
