Anglia Ruskin University Judo Research Group
In September 2014 The Anglia Ruskin Judo Research Group joined with the Anglia Ruskin Sport and Exercise Science Research Group (SESRG) for a research away day, to share best practice in research activity.
Presentations were made by the PhD students and the new staff in the morning, and in the afternoon, the established staff updated on their recent activities.
Dr Mat Timmis introduced colleagues to the expected Research Excellence Framework (REF), and how the SESRG might contribute to that. Judospace is proud to make a significant contrbution to this activity.
Chelyabinsk World Judo Championships
Two academics based at the Anglia Ruskin University Judo Research Group (ARJRG) attended the 2014 World Judo Championships in Chelyabinsk, Russia collecting data for their PhD projects:
- Bob Challis [pictured right] 'The tactical, technical and time-motion contributions to light-weight women's judo contests.'
- Glenn Miller [pictured left] 'A technical alaysis of British judoka in elite level international competition, in light of new rule emendments.'
The pair are using the 2014 World Championships to ensure that research produced is evidence based and up to date.
Updates from their trip and research projects to follow.
On the 23rd October 2012 the UK's only judo specific research group was formed. Judospace Chief Executive Dr Mike Callan is director of the group which is based at the Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.
There are numerous projects completed by the group and several in progress or application. A more comprehensive list can be found on the activities report below.
Feel free to get in touch if you have questions about the work if the ARJRG.
