Yudansha Grading Notice – July 17, 2021

The Judo Alberta Grading Committee is pleased to announce that a Yudansha Grading Clinic for competitive stream athletes is scheduled for Saturday, July 17th, 2021 from 9:00AM-12:45PM & 1:45PM-6:00PM at the Lethbridge Kyodokan Judo Club (2775 28 Ave S, Lethbridge, AB).

Instructors for the clinic will be:

  • Garry Yamashita
  • Gord Okamura
  • Kelly Palmer

All Judoka that are recommended by their Sensei must get their Grading Forms to Judo Canada for approval no later than July 12th, 2021.

Judo Alberta will strictly adhere to the Government of Alberta Covid-19 protocols and we may be forced to once again postpone the Grading.

For non-competitive Judoka, the committee will schedule a kata grading session since attending a kata clinic does not satisfy the judo Canada grading syllabus requirements. This grading session will be scheduled as soon as “covidly” possible. Please stay tuned for more details.

Thank you,

Joe Meli – AGB Chair
