Club to re-open soon
Sorry for the shortage of updates, as you are aware of the situation as to when it would be permitted to hold Judo sessions has not been predictable. Unfortunately, the news is mixed.
The good news is that we are now in the final stage of planning the club reopening. We are currently looking at how we can return safely and stay within any rules that may be imposed post Covid restrictions.
The bad news is that the leisure centre has reallocated our long held Saturday session ( without informing us !), so we are initially looking to hold the Junior session at 7:00 PM on a Thursday.
At this time any feedback and suggestions are welcomed

Hosaka Kwai Judo Club – Coronavirus – Covid 19
Guidance on Covid-19
If you are unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms, please do not come on the mat to practice judo, even if you think it is not Corona Virus.
The Corona Virus will be with us for several months and we need to be vigilant to avoid its spread. Judo is a contact sport, so it is even more important to take heed of the advice given by the Health Protection Agency and other professional bodies. The following pictorial guidance should be noted by all attending our Judo Club.
The NHS advises you, among other things, to wash your hands
regularly, cover your mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and avoid
touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
We expect the leisure
services at the centre to keep the hall clean, but we all need to play a part
as well. We put away the mats after practice each time.
Some advice in the government
- "Anyone with flu-symptoms should avoid the risk of spreading their infection, whatever that infection maybe, by staying at home and recovering". Judo is a contact sport and would be a high-risk activity with such symptoms.
- "As the
situation progresses, we might advise the frail, elderly and those with
pre-existing health conditions (to be defined) to stay away from gatherings as
part of general advice aimed at minimising unnecessary contact with others"
- "There is
presently no reason people should stop doing their daily sport and physical
activities as they normally would"
