Official Judo information site for Southern Area part of the British Judo Association

To the Southern Area Judo Family

I’m sure you will have seen the latest news from the UK Government and the BJA about the restriction of public events which has affected competitions until the end of April – and, of course, this also applies to any gradings or courses. Closer to home – the Trials / Closed events for Hampshire, Sussex and Kent counties (due to be held on 29 March)  have been cancelled and many clubs had already decided to close prior to the Government’s latest announcement.

Any updates about SA activity will be posted on the SA website and public SA FB page. More detailed information about County matters will be posted on their websites and FB pages.

The forthcoming months will present difficulties for all of us in different ways. Please take good care of yourselves and your families.  To paraphrase Jo Crowley’s recent FB post…  judo folk are strong in heart and mind, and are resilient  ….. so we will get through these confusing and challenging times and come out stronger. 

Best Regards to you all
