Players & Parents

 Without a BJA coach registry, you might get a false impression from social media, the press & websites about who is qualified and licensed to coach judo.

In 2019, Comberton Judo club falsely claimed their “head coach” was BJA licensed for almost 18 months after he had been suspended by the British Judo Association.
