Once a student is over age 8 (ie wearing a B&W Belt) they will automatically be assessed as to when they are ready for the Junior Mat.
- It is strongly recommended that Foundation judoka try to achieve their Junior Red Belt before moving over to the Junior Group.
- Some Judoka may be ready to move to the Junior Session before they have sufficient knowledge for a Junior Red Belt in which case they may move across wearing a White belt with Red Tab .
Judoka moving over to the Junior Mat will have a 4 week introductory period – should your judoka be worried about moving over please speak to Sensei John or Sam. We would rather judoka spend more time with the Foundation group than be unhappy with the Junior section.
