Welcome to Samurai
Welcome to Samurai Judo Club
Samurai Judo Club, Zortech Avenue, Kidderminster, Worcs DY11 7DY
Although we are waiting for final confirmation from government and the BJA, it is expected that Samurai will be able to re-open starting next Monday, July 27th.
We have emailed out large amounts of information to all those members who have an email address. Slots on sessions have to be booked and a lot of sessions have been arranged. There are still a few vacancies, these will be filled on a first come, first served basis. If we don;t have an email address for you or you have not been receiving the emails (check your spam filter!), please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you all the info.
Social distancing remains in force. However, many families are able to make up household partnerships and there are also some social bubble partnerships. Swapping partners will not be allowed during sessions and each pair will have their own sector of the mat area to train in. We have gone to great lengths to make everybody as safe as we can and we are helped by the fact that our premises are spacious and exceptionally well ventilated, probably the best ventilated dojo in the UK.
We have two sessions planned for Saturday mornings (starting August 1st) which are suitable for beginners in pairs, again either by household or social bubble, These could suit a parent and child! Please contact me before coming along (telephone 01886 821087 or email as above).
Regrettably, to keep the numbers in the dojo to a minimum, there are limited spaces on each session and also no spectators are allowed, except for one parent per household with children under 8 years.
The re-opening is still dependent on final government confirmation.
Competitions and courses are, we think, still some way off. We have not forgotten that we have some entry fees for events which have been cancelled, these will be used for rearranged events of the player's choice when we are able to resume, or if you would prefer a refund, please email me as above.
Samurai Judo Club is a registered charity which caters for people of all ages from 6 to 70 who are interested in judo. We have players at all competitive levels as well as recreational players. We also have some of the highest level referees and competition organisers in Great Britain.
Please note that at this time our competition schedule continues to be on hold due to coronavirus.
We welcome new members, whether new to judo or experienced.
