Returning to Judo
We’re receiving quite a few emails with regards to returning to judo so we thought it best to make a post and let everyone know.
We’re aware that schools are back and that some indoor sports are allowed for children but we currently do not believe it is the right thing for judo to return yet. We understand some clubs are returning and doing socially distanced judo but we do not think this is the correct thing for us to do.
We will review this around the 21st June when all COVID restrictions are likely to have been relaxed but we may hold off opening until the schools return in September, we simply do not know yet.
We know this is disappointing for many but we want to return in a manner that is safe for everyone.
Results from today at the Scottish Open
Jessie - Bronze 🥉
Lucy - Bronze (seniors) 🥉🥉🥉
Lucy - 5th (juniors) 😬
Ben - didn’t place 😦
Both Jessie and Lucy will get 75 GB ranking points. This means Jessie will move to about 7th and Lucy will make her senior ranking list debut, ranked about 21st. Ben will remain ranked about 10th.
The next day was national Randori before the loooong drive home
