BJA Level 1 Coaching Course

February 3, 2024 - February 4, 2024


The BJA Level 1 award is the starting point for your coaching journey in judo.

If you are new to coaching judo, have limited coaching knowledge or want to get more involved in your club, then this is the course for you.

The course focuses on the ‘how to coach skills’ using practical technical examples (where relevant) to apply these skills; basic technical principles of ne-waza and tachi-waza; health and safety; and basic judo rules.

On successful completion of this course candidates will receive a British Judo Association Level 1 coaching award and will be equipped to work alongside a UKCC Level 2 or UKCC Level 3 judo coach during club or other relevant coaching sessions. Once they have turned 18 years of age, a BJA Level 1 coach may, upon the discretion of a UKCC Level 2 of UKCC Level 3 coach, also work independently under supervision.
