When you start you do not need to buy a suit judo outfit straight away. As long as clothing is worn without any metal or sharp components. The British Judo Council is quite traditional and does not allow competitors to wear judo suits with sports branding on the jackets e.g. ADIDAS. It is advised that you choose a plain white judo outfit e.g. Blitz. Click here for example. To save money the club sometimes has secondhand judo outfits that you can purchase.




As students progress they will be graded according to BJC rules. Grading can sometimes be done within Lea Club or may also be carried out at area gradings. These are often held in Bristol.
