With the change in the British Judo Association grading system to a purely technical basis for Kyu grades we are making some slight changes to the way our training sessions are run:
Tuesdays will remain the primary session for experienced players with an emphasis on randori and fitness.
Thursdays will incorporate a beginners course as usual but also provide teaching of techniques for those working through the new Kyu grade syllabus.
Sundays will retain an emphasis on technique refinement along with lighter randori.
The club trains only during University term time (check the University website for current term dates). Because the Students Union is not open to the public, non university staff/students should contact the club about visiting us. See the Membership page about the requirements for non students wishing to join the club.
As the university club only runs during the university team, club members can also be found training at other local clubs. The following sessions are ones that we generally attend in addition to our own sessions, or during the vacation. Lifts are usually available, particularly out of term time.
A Tuesday night session with beginners from 7.30 to 8.30 and all grades from 8.30 to 10. The sessions have a mix of technique and randori training. Check out their website at http://www.winchester-martialarts.org/index.htm for directions as it can be a tricky location to find.
Sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays so nicely independent of our sessions. We often take people along to visit their monthly randori specials.
Greyfriars Activity Centre,
44 Christchurch Rd,
Sundays from 6.30 to 8, a mix of technique and randori training. See their website at http://www.eastleighjudokwai.co.uk.
