STUDENT AWARDS


Grading: The student’s theory is tested in terms of their general Judo Knowledge, Terminology and Application and graded compared to the published syllabus.


Student of the Month: This award is given to a student who has made that extra bit of effort in the last month. They need to show, in the true spirit of Judo, the 3 A's:-
Achievement; of your very best by continually trying hard.
Attitude; to yourself and others, which teaches harmony and humility.
Attendance; without which there could be no improvement.
It is not awarded every month, but on those occasions when someone stands out from the crowd.


The Jack Petchey Endeavour Award is sponsored by the Jack Petchey Foundation. Award winners are voted for by the students every three months. It's for students aged between 11 and 25 in recognition of achieving the three E's:-.
Effort; You need this...
Endeavour; You try for this...
Exceptional achievement; This helps...
The winners receive a certificate from the Foundation and a Cheque to be spent on the club or other students. At the Annual Awards ceremony in November, a representative of the Jack Petchey Foundation will also present a special boxed medallion to that year’s winners.
