Judo Alberta Technical & Competition Stream Grading – February 12 & 13, 2022, Lethbridge, Edmonton, Calgary

Judo Alberta Technical & Competition Stream Grading – February 12 & 13, 2022, Lethbridge, Edmonton, Calgary

Good afternoon, Judo Alberta Members

The Judo Alberta Grading Committee is proposing changes to the Technical Stream & Competitive Stream Grading scheduled for February 12. The change will better protect our judoka by having greater physical distancing and safety measures

Dividing the Technical Stream grading into two regions

Location:        Tokugawa Dojo, 9647 62 Avenue NW, Edmonton

Date:                Saturday, February 12, 2022

Time:                8:30 am dojo available for warm up

                           9:00 Grading begins

Location:        Lethbridge Kyodokan Dojo, 2775 – 28 Avenue South, Lethbridge

Date:                Saturday, February 12, 2022

Time:               1:00 pm dojo available for warm up

                           1:30 Grading begins

For Shodan candidates, in lieu of a written test, a Kahoot session will be held on Friday February 11 at 9 pm (no longer than 30 minutes) to test your knowledge. The instructions will be emailed separately to all Shodan candidates in advance.

Separate Competitive Stream grading

Location:        Hiro’s Dojo, 1919 27 Avenue NE, Calgary (based on competitive stream candidates, a virtual session would be considered from Edmonton)

Date:                Sunday, February 13, 2022

Time:               9:00 am Clinic begins

Competitive stream candidates will not do a traditional formal Dan grading examination. Instead, there are two components to your grading. First, there will be a kata clinic (as stipulated in the National Grading Syllabus). Based on current applications, it will be a Nage no Kata clinic on February 13.

Second, there will be a Tachi-waza / Ne-waza session where you will demonstrate your favourite Nage / Katame / Shime / Kansetsu technique. Then everyone will have time to practice.,
