Bishops Stortford Judo Gradings
As a British Judo Association club we use the BJA grading system to to provide a grading pathway for our members.
Judoka will be invited to club gradings when their coaches decide that they are ready for promotion and will typically be encouraged to grade once every 4 to 6 months.
To be considered for grade promotion judoka need to be training regularly, following the recommended competition pathway and showing improvements in randori. During the grading examination they will be required to pass both a technical ability and a theory knowledge test.
Please remember to bring your BJA record book to club gradings and ensure that your BJA membership is kept in date, if this lapses you are ineligible for gradings.
