At the request of the Norwegian Judo Federation [NJF] ten coaches are currently working towards their EJU Level 3 Coaching Award. Coach education is a high priority of the NJF who have selected the EJU course to educate, develop and update the standard of coaching in Norwegian Judo Clubs.
A residential block was recently held in Oslo, Norway, conducted by Judospace instructors and guest: Dr Mike Callan, Darren Warner, Janine Johnson and Yoshiaki Tsuruoka. The block consisted of four days of intensive learning including practical and theoretical sessions on six different topics.
NJF manager Stine Lastein about the residential block: the participants seemed raised as a result of the course, it is therefore natural to look at the opportunities we have to use this as part of the Norwegian Judo school. This will ensure that our courses are of high judo professional quality at international level.
Judospace thank the NJF for their hospitality during the block and hard work from the student coaches. Good luck for the rest of the course!
Judospace Educational Institute are pleased to be working with the Norwegian Judo Federation (Norges Judoforbund) to deliver the European Judo Union Advanced Coach Award.
The initiative is the brainchild of NJF Coaching Consultant Stine Lastein, following meetings at the EJU Education Seminar in Wavre, Belgium in 2013.
Coaches will follow the programme, starting with the 6 online modules, and then concluding with an intensive residential block later in the 2014. The residential study block will be hosted at the Norsk Judo og Jiu-jitsu Klubb in Oslo.
The coaches were raised as a result of the course
