EJU Experts Commission

For the EJU the role of the club coach is as important as that of the coach to the national team. This is why the Experts Commission was created at the end of July 2013. In conjunction with the Education Department of the EJU the Experts Commission has developed a unique educational system to help form and educate club coaches at grass roots level.

Through a project called "Improve your Club" and by means of seminars, aimed at teaching judo to 8 to 12 year olds the main objective of the Experts Commission is to ensure that club coaches are able to:

  • Teach judo techniques and judo values to children
  • Motive children to continue to practice judo for a long time and follow a competition pathway for those who want to.
