Meridian Judo Club Welcome

On behalf of The Meridian Judo Club we would like to welcome you or/and your  child to the club and provide you with some information about our activities. The club provides opportunities for children and adults of all ages and abilities to receive coaching in Judo.

All training is by qualified British Judo Association (BJA) coaches who have been screened for their suitability for working with young people*.We have full insurance cover and membership with the BJA.


All club coaches and officers offer their time free of charge, which enables us to keep our fees low. Training session fees are paid at the start of each session attended if paying PAYG, or alternatively via a monthly standing order which offers a discounted cost. We welcome parents to all training sessions and value their support.


The partnership between club, child and parent is so important that we have a special Parents/Guardians Agreement that we ask you to read and sign when your child first joins the club.


As a contact sport, it is important that we have rules for everyone’s safety so please also take a moment to read the Health and Safety Notes and  Club Rules to your child, as we find that an explanation and reinforcement from a parental figure greatly assists our coaches and settles the children into the club more quickly.


To operate safely, we need at least one emergency contact and details of any medical issues. So please complete an online registration form. Please visit our safeguarding page for copies of our child protection policy and other safeguarding policies.

We ask that children arrive in good time to start the training session, with a few minutes allowed for changing.It should be noted that the club cannot be responsible for children outside of the dojo.If at any time you would like any further information, or have any concerns the coaches will be happy to help.


Yours sincerely,


Mike Spencer

Club Coach
