Dear fellow Judoka / Member.

We hope you are all keeping well and staying safe in this current unprecedented situation.

Just to keep you updated on a couple of decisions made by the NIJF Board of Directors, who have been discussing the impact that the Coronavirus isolation and lockdown period will have on you over the coming months.

Like us we’re sure you’re missing Judo, your club and your friends, so in light of that, we will be offering all of you a free 3-month extension on your NIJF Membership/Licence.

We will also be freezing the scheduled membership increase until 2021.

We are in this together, with the same worries and fears and hopefully, if we work together, we can come out of this situation stronger.

Whilst the House of Sport remains closed Averil will continue to work from home in her usual hours and can be contacted on should you have any queries.

Mark Donald will continue in his role and over the hiatus will be looking to add extra benefits to the Membership/Licence with new partners for everyone. If you have any suggestions or input please contact him at

We would like to wish you all well during this time, stay safe and we look forward to the time when we can see each other back on the tatami again.

We have some links below for you that can help with your health and well-being over the disruption.



Bill Taggart

NIJF Board of Directors
