Below are a list of upcoming events and competitions – some of these will be promoted in-club, but if you would like further details on any mentioned then please either speak to a coach, or get in touch. If you are not sure whether a competition will be suitable for you or your child, then again please do not hesitate to ask.
Katame no Kata Course – 9:30 am Sunday 15th May – Lopham – £20
For those who wish to learn the ground-fighting kata of Katame no Kata, this course can serve as either an introduction or as an examination. If you wish to obtain a Katame no Kata certificate, then you must have completed additional training prior to attending to meet the minimum training requirement. Please speak to a coach regarding the suitability of this event for you, and please note that places are limited.

This training session is suitable for all players who want to expand their judo horizons, and to train with partners of all abilities, from red belts to high-level competitors.

Details to follow
Littleport Green & Under Open – Sunday 3rd July – Littleport – £15
For those competitors who are perhaps not as far into their judo career, but have a fair amount of competitive experience under their belt, this tournament will be a very good test. In previous years the Littleport events have been hotly contested, and so it is vital that you speak to a coach prior to booking this event.
Littleport Youth & Senior Open (over 14s only) – Sunday 27th November – Littleport – £18
For those looking for a high-end competition, or to score points towards their dan grade, this competition is ideal. However, it is unsuitable for most competitors without significant contest experience. Please speak to a coach if you are considering attending. There is also a Masters (30+) category available for Men. There is also a dan grading immediately following this event, priced at £15 – or £30 for both the competition and the grading).
