WYJC Inter-Club Judo Competition - Saturday 7th May 2016:
Entry to the Competition is Now Closed: No more entries for our event on 7th May. This WYJC event is by invitation only and is intended for all of the children who do Judo with us at WYJC and at our Partner Clubs & 'Schools2Dojo' after-school Judo Clubs. Check-out our previous competition event photographs on our 'photos page' (above menu). Spectators (Family and friends only) welcome on the day.
Our British Judo Association (BJA) Club No. is 4468. This BJA Club No. is the number that is needed by our club members who wish to take out British Judo Association Individual Membership (as part of our Club), in order for them to be awarded Grades/Belts and for them to participate in Championships and other BJA events.
WYJC was founded in 1973 and our mission statement & club motto has always been 'Judo For All'. We have been providing excellent Judo training & coaching opportunities for over Forty Years now and we look forward to the next forty years of Judo service to you and our local Community. So! We hope to see You soon (when you come along to 'Have a Go at Judo').
WYJC was awarded the prestigious 'Sport England Club Mark Award' in 2008 by the Chairman of the BJA Mr Densign White and we have ensured that the high quality standards needed to achieve this award have been maintained and developed further through continued personal & professional development of all of our Judo Coaches.
All of our Coaches are fully qualified with the BJA and have full certification from the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS Certificates / Police checked), as well as being qualified & experienced First Aiders.
Our Coaching Team are all professional Judo Coaches who work for their living as full-time Judo Coaches in Schools, Colleges and Leisure Centres, but, work as unpaid Volunteer Coaches at WYJC in the evenings. Our Coaches also hold qualifications in Fitness Training and are experienced Self-Defence Instructors for Schools, Colleges & Clubs.
Knight, Kavanagh & Page (on their last visit to wyjc) acting as Auditors for Sport England, carried out a 'Club Mark' External Verification Site Audit and following this, they sent us an excellent review letter (just as in previous years; i.e. this was our forth Club Mark External Verification visit since 2008). You can read their comments by clicking onto the following Link (Click this Link to Read their Letter).
