Refereeing Level 1 Course

Well done to all who took part in last weeks refereeing level 1 course which was hosted at Sobell Judo club. Judoka from across the country travelled down to take part in this education course designed to introduce students to refereeing. A fantastic, in depth and practical course was run at the sobell leisure centre with all coming away with newfound knowledge of the principles and rules of JFAUK.

These courses are not only beneficial to future referees but also assist coaches as knowledge of contest rules give clarity on how to teach students effective judo techniques for contest. They can also help coaches educate students about judo discipline, hygiene and mannerisms.

Sampson Sampson is a name not easily mistaken. He has gained something of a cult status for his unusual title, while achieving much more besides in the Islington community.

Not satisfied with owning one of the oldest barbers in the country - Sampson’s Cuts is located in Highbury - the 53-year-old has also coached judo since 1978 at Sobell Leisure Centre and recently received a prestigious World Judo Federation award for his contribution to the martial art.
