Big success at the referee and time keeping course held today (20.1.13) @ Jays boys club. Both myself and Jon Jackson enjoyed the course, learning and interacting with other federation members. Thank-you to Joe norman and Steve butler for your time....

Looking forward to the next event and the judo 2013 has to come.

Thanks Steve for an interesting and useful technique course. It was good to meet with old friends and new judoka. Hope to see you all on July 8th at Blackwater Leisure Centre for the Newaza Course.

Hi Colin. Sorry don't know you but honestly I wasn't offended - bless! I just wanted to make a point that officially the syllabus was to be given to membership on 1st July. I assumed this would give C. Dawson and regional coaches the opportunity to see it. I was just the minute taker at the meeting. The intermediate grouping was not discussed and is a good idea - if this is happening we should have no problems. All we are concerned with is the insurance and if insurers do have doubts we should be seen as being proactive in relationship to child protection.

Did not mean to cause offence to Juneille or any other committee member with my previous comments. Took the 'Syllabus' as read, there was no further explaination to acompany it and I see that it has now been removed from the web site. I also appreciate the reminder that childen are recognised as such in law until they are 18, but in our sport there is quite a transition from junior to senior status, as such I thought the Intermediate status a good thing. Seniors know that they are learning but may not be accomplished at all the techniques that will be required and can make allowances accordingly. Now 18 year olds may be thrown in the deep end with thoroughly experienced seniors with limited in-club experience. Child safety is of paramount importance and insurance coverage should most certainly be investigated in what has now emerged as a 'grey area'.
Thank you for the opportunity to express my views lets hope the A.E.J.F. continues to go from strength to strength.
Kind regards,
Colin.

RESPONSE: the syllabus has now been removed for the time being until final clarification of when does a child become a adult in the world of martial Arts and other sports.

I am a member of the Technical Board I am so pleased you have seen the new syllabus because I have not!!!What you have seen is a guideline, the techniques have yet to be established by the Technical Board Chairman. What ever you have been shown is not the final draft!!!! Clarification has has to be made as to whether a child is a child until they are 18 in law! A child is now clarified in law as a child until they are 18!! Other organisations need and insurers need to clarify this in respect of insurance.

Have now had a look at the new sylabus and can understand that Katame has been removed for Juniors, - thy can't use it until senior grade anyway. - However I have been informed that the intermediate age group has been dropped and all judoka will be classed as juniors until the age of 18. This is completely out of line with most other organisations, shouldn't 16 yeare olds be prepared for open competition outside of the A.E.J.F.? I also believe that double knee drop throws are also to be banned on safety grounds. Surely the proper tuition of the throw would be better, again it will be used by others in open competition. The danger is in the poor execution of the throw not the throw itself.
I assume that higher grades will be asked to execute throws required from earlier belt levels, would be nice to see that judoka also know the theory and translations too!
A lot of changes, perhaps some consultation with members would have been a good idea.

RESPONSE: Thank you for your time in submitting your question/concerns. I would ask you to be patient as the National Secretary will consolidate all questions in relation to the new 2012 Syllabus and pass onto the AEJF Technical Board for a formal response.

These responses will be published on to the web site with a banner advising so on the Home page.

have just read through the new AEJF grading syllabus. Pleased to see that kata has been retained but I am very concerned that there is so little requirement for higher grade judoka to show knowledge of a wide variety of techniques. Does this mean that promotion will be solely based on ability to win in shiai? whilst I understand a grading syllabus is only a guide and Sensei's can teach any techniques that are important to them, how can the AEJF ensure that it's future instructors have a wide knowledge base to draw on it does not give clearer guidelines of what judoka should be being taught? Does anyone else have any concerns?
