Judo Classes (24th June 2021 Update)

All went smoothly!

After all the time spent in planning, negotiations with Xcel, and contacting the parents and pupils, classes restarted on Monday 7th and Thursday 8th.

Temperatures were taken and we used a new entrance and exit system.

It is marvellous to see so many faces reappearing after such a long break.

Lots of beginners want to start and numbers have to be limited in line with government regulations.

At last we are back!

Judo Classes (4th June 2021 Update)

At last !
Judo classes are restarting at Xcel Leisure Centre, Walton-on-Thames on Monday 7th June and Thursday 10th of June.

I know that the Chief Instructor Jean-Claude has contacted all past pupils and newcomers but just in case his mobile number is 07833 098 792, for more information on class times and availability.

Jean-Claude and his assistants have been working tirelessly coordinating this opening with the help of the management at Xcel , indeed we have a separate entrance and exit to the Centre .

I hope to see you all on either Monday 7th June or Thursday 10th

Judo Classes (May 2021 Update)

We are in constant contact with all the schools and leisure centres about when we can restart judo classes.

In all the 50 odd years of Tora-Kai there has never been such a catastrophic time when we have had to suspend training judo, hopefully we are, at last, getting close to restarting classes and practice.

I personally have just had my second Covid vaccination along with another 15 million others!

I wish you all a safe and healthy future

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, 12th May 2021

December 2020 Update

At last it sounds as though that the Covid vaccination may be able to solve this terrible epidemic.

We are impatiently waiting to restart Judo lessons at the clubs venues .

May I wish all parents and pupils of Tora-Kai Judo Club a very Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, 14th December 2020

November 2020 Update

Sadly after all our plans for starting Judo classes in November this current lock down has put an end to restarting.

Hopefully we will be able to restart fairly soon.

No Judo classes yet, I will keep my ‘fingers crossed’ that after this break we will be allowed to restart classes.

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, 5th November 2020

Mid October 2020 Update

We are restarting Judo classes at our main centre: The Elmbridge Leisure Centre complex on November 2nd 2020.

All previous students should have been notified. Any children or adults who would like to take up our sport please contact Jean-Claude on 07833 498 792.

He has full details of the new procedures involved in registering and attending classes.

Early October 2020 Update

We are still waiting for confirmation about restarting all our classes at Schools and Leisure Centres.

I do apologise to all the pupils about this enforced wait, I regularly receive calls about pupils who want to continue with their Judo or from children and adults who want to take up our sport.
I will contact all who are waiting just as soon as we have confirmation that it is safe to do so.

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, 2nd October 2020

September 2020 Update

What with the August holidays over and some Schools returning to Judo classes in September, Tora -Kai is waiting to resume its practice sessions.
Referring to the official Judo Association website I find it confusing as to what is actually allowed, I feel that caution is required, however I would like to mention that all the coaches are looking forward to the classes resuming.

July Update

Slowly we are hearing more reassuring news about Judo classes returning to normal.
I have just been contacted by a School I coach Judo at, to ask me to return to teaching early September, hopefully this will go ahead. As to what precautions etc that will be in place, I have not been informed.

I now look forward to returning to coaching the sport of Judo and hopefully seeing all my pupils and friends again in September.

Keep Safe.

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, 26th June 2020

May Update

We are in the month of May, I like everybody else have had over 50 days of isolation and apart from 7 visits to the shops and a dog walk every morning I have stayed in and to somebody that has had over 30 Judo classes a week teaching 500 children, it is totally different to anything I have ever experienced. However, I am aware and humbled by the fortitude of my neighbours and of those less fortunate than myself. This is truly a new experience for us all.

Judo classes will resume as and when we are officially told that it is safe to continue.

I ask all Tora-Kai’s parents and pupils to be patient. Hopefully, classes will resume soon.

2020 Club Competition

We did it ! Our usual Club Competition went off without a ‘hitch’, the sixty competitors and a hundred and fifty parents etc, all seemed to enjoy the day and it was a pleasure to see the happy smiling faces leave the Xcel centre after some close fought contests.
We were fortunate enough to hold the Competition just before the virus ‘lock down’.

All our classes are now suspended until we are officially advised it is safe to restart them.

I am in good health and involved in self isolating, I do find it so strange, yet important, the suggested two metre separation on going shopping, still we all seem to be managing very well.

Lets hope we can beat this virus quickly !

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, 28th March 2020

Classes Postponed Until Further Notice

Dear Parent/s, Guardians and Students,

Further to my email yesterday, to inform you that from tomorrow with advice from Public Health England and the Government, Tora-Kai School of Judo will postpone their classes until further notice. Whilst this is a disappointing decision, I’m sure it is one that is unsurprising given the current situation locally, nationally and worldwide.

I will contact you again as soon as we have more information when the classes can restart.

Would like to take this opportunity, to thank you for all your support, please stay positive and patient.

Kindest regards

Adrian Pearman

Tora-Kai Club Championships 2020

“Just a few more days before our big event of the year — the Tora-Kai Club Championships, Sunday 15th March, to be held at the Xcel Leisure Centre, Walton-on-Thames.

Our 39th annual Competition at Xcel, it will be smaller this year taking up just half of the main hall, but this allows us plenty of room for all the visiting Parents, Spectators and Competitors.

It is rewarding to note that once again there is an increase in the number of girls taking part.

On Saturday evening,the 14th, our wiiling band of helpers will be assisting the Leisure Centre staff in laying out the mats and generally ensuring all is ready for the Competition on the Sunday.

Parents please make sure you have a revised Competition time sheet with details of when your son or daughter will be involved.

May I finish by wishing all the Competitors and their Parents a most enjoyable and inspiring day.”

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, December 2019

Season’s Greetings & Holiday Period

“Christmas is just a few weeks away !

Most Tora-Kai Judo classes continue to operate until the second or third week in December and then close for the holiday period until the second week of January (please check with your children’s coach as to the exact dates ).

On hearing the predicted weather forecast we could be having a white Christmas this year!

On behalf of the coaches and myself may I wish all the children and adults who have Judo classes with Tora-Kai a lovely Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.”

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, December 2019

Half term is coming , Its hard to believe that Christmas is only a few months away.

Our Judo classes are flourishing and personally I am planning to promote some children from my classes to slightly more challenging groups where they will be able to continue their progress whilst enjoying their Judo.

Gradings and a competition will be held the second part of this Autumn term.

JC and I are in the process of our annual meeting with the Walton Xcel Centre Manager to prepare for next Club Competition, which will be held early next year.(more details will be sent out soon )

Now we now have a young adults/Senior class again I invite all my ex pupils and any person who is interested to contact me for a free trial in the sport of Judo .”

Our School and Public Judo classes are flourishing

How the year seems to race by.
It is now only a few more weeks before the Summer holidays.

Our School and Public Judo classes are flourishing with a steady stream of children and adults wanting to take up the sport.

Jean-Claude is busy training up the Spelthorne youth team for the Borough games; as from last year the competitors have to be newcomers to the sport.

David, Peter, Jonathan and Adrians classes are busy with the usual end of terms Gradings and Competitions, soon it will be time to see some of our pupils proudly wearing their new belts ;- a most rewarding sight for any Judo coach.”

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, June 2019

Another Competition successfully completed , this being the 38th consecutive annual competition at Xcel leisure Centre.

We hold this special day for the benefit of our pupils (and if there is a profit, a local charity) it introduces them into the competitive side of this great sport of ours.
The Club Coaches spend many hours preparing for this competition both sorting out the categories and paperwork and actually setting up all the equipment required to host a day that involves over 150 children and 350 parents . This is with our proud boast that since the start of our gatherings we keep to time , with no category going over two and a half hours , indeed we finished an hour earlier than the expected time last Sunday.
It is a tribute to the Coaches and their willing band of helpers that they are able to manage to coordinate such a busy day.

It is now over forty years since we became the most popular Judo Club in the Country and I think we are still up with the top few judo clubs with nearly a thousand members.

My thanks must go to all the parents who gave up their time to ferry their children along to Xcel on this day , it was a pleasure to watch the mixed emotions on the parents faces , these feelings I remember so well when my own children used to compete.”

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, April 2019

We are looking forward to the Club Tournament
As I am now actually practising Judo again , after so many years of coaching children , I well remember the dull ache in your body after a class the night before !
However it is a positive pleasure to be on the mat again in Jean -Claude’s class.

This year our Club tournament is to be held in March , we usually hold the Competition in June but there are so many things on in that month our coaches have decided to try an alternative (for the first time in so many years my family may actually see me on fathers day ! ).

March 24th is the date when the pupils of the club meet up for the friendly competition. For some it will be a new experience, hopefully for all it will be an enjoyable day.

The Club Coaches have had many meetings and conversations with each other over the last year as to how to make this Competition our best ever.

I look forward to meeting many of you on the 24th.”

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, March 2019

Well its nearly the end of the year and its time to reflect on what the club has been involved in throughout the year.

As always we supported the Surrey Youth games this year with a new format : introducing our ‘new’ pupils to the competitive side of Judo.
We held our usual club competition in the main hall at the Xcel complex, Walton-on-Thames , a whole day of children competing against each other and hopefully remaining friends !

In all classes , throughout the year , competitions and gradings were held to continually allow the children to monitor their progress.

Our coaches are continually striving to maintain the excellent coaching standard they have achieved and they continually attend all the excellent necessary courses they require to coach Judo to children and adults.”

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, 28th November 2018

Can it be that we are less than 5 months away from our next Club Competition!

As a trial the coaches have decided that we should alter the date we hold our annual Club Competition ; it has been decided to hold our big showcase event in March next year. This is the event where over 200 boys , girls and young adults take part .
This Competition has been held for many years as an introductory experience for our many pupils , we usually run this event at the Xcel Leisure centre .

My good friend and ex pupil Bob has returned to continue his judo training with us , he has the ambition of entering the British Masters Competition next year and I intend to regularly up date how his training is going.
I wish him every success.”

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, 29th October 2018

After our successful Club Competition in July we are holding our usual coaches meeting.
This is to discuss the competition and see how we can improve the experience in the next Competition. Our meeting is planned for the 19th of October at the usual venue.
After 38 Competitions we are still trying to improve ‘ the day ‘ for children and parents.
A new competition check list has been devised and is in the process of being emailed to all coaches for their comments, hopefully this should help organise and assist . 

Our senior section is flourishing and at the Xcel leisure centre there will be a theory grading for its members on Thursday 12th of October – 6 to 730 pm .”

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, 6th October 2018

Welcome back to all our pupils in our Schools and Leisure Centres.

Our coaches have now resumed all classes.
What with our warm and sunny summer it was indeed fortunate that we had a break July/August time.
This is traditionally the busiest time of the year for all classes as children move up a year and try out different sports.

A couple of date have been announced ; for the Surrey Youth games , they will be held over the weekend of the 15th/16th of June 2019.”

Adrian Pearman

Principal and Head Coach - Tora-Kai School Of Judo, September 2018

  • Training students to participate in various Competition events around the country

“Morgan Class-Kirtley travelled up to the Budokwai on Sunday the 11th February 2018.
The Budokwai is the oldest Judo Club in Europe and has produced so many of our notable Judoka over the last 100 years.
Morgan was allowed to join in Paul Ajala’s class under the watchful eye of Tony Sweeny, ‘Mr Judo’ President of the Budokwai and 9th Dan.”
Adrian Pearman

The holiday seems to be flying by and it will be back to Judo classes soon .

The coaches are preparing for another busy term ahead with a new influx of beginners especially in the Schools and some new classes are being opened in our Leisure Centres to cater for the demand .

I hope all our pupils are looking forward to another term of Judo practice and friendly competition.”

What is Self-Harm?
The phrase ‘self-harm’ is used to describe a wide range of behaviours. Self-harm is often understood to be a physical response to an emotional pain of some kind, and can be very addictive. Some of the things people do are quite well known, such as cutting, burning or pinching, but there are many, many ways to hurt yourself, including abusing drugs and alcohol or having an eating disorder.
Sometimes, it’s more important to focus on how someone is feeling rather than what they do to themselves. Quite often, people find that more helpful.

Everyone has accidents from time to time resulting in cuts and bruises – but it’s the injuries that are caused on purpose that are considered to be acts of self-harm. Self-harm often happens during times of anger, distress, fear, worry, depression or low self-esteem in order to manage or control negative feelings. Selfharm can also be used as a form of self-punishment for something someone has done, thinks they have done, are told by someone else that they have done, or that they have allowed to be done to themselves.

INITIAL RESPONSE TO A YOUNG PERSON ON DISCLOSURE OF SELF-HARM
If you are aware that a student, child or young person, has self-harmed this is the recommended approach:
 Listen calmly (Assess);
 Seek first aid treatment, if necessary (Manage);
 Contact parents/carers as soon as possible (Inform);
 Contact other professionals for advice (Assess);
 Work with the young person and their families to ensure appropriate support is in place to address both the self-harming and the underlying issues (Manage);
 Monitor the situation and communicate regularly with parents/carers (Inform);
 Consider other children and young people who may be affected (Assess).

Message from Chris Robson, LSCB Chair

I am pleased to send this newsletter out as we launch our Neglect Strategy in Kingston and Richmond today at our LSCB Conference. I would like to thank Tracey Welding, Daksha Mistry and Ellie Boorer, LSCB, Sara Doyle, AfC and Andrea Knock, Designated Nurse, CCG for all their hard work in preparing this launch for our partnership.

Neglect in Richmond and Kingston
Neglect is an important local issue for us. Do you wonder why?
We know outcomes for children who are neglected are poorer than for the general population. There has been a 4% rise in referrals for neglect nationally last year in the UK. 20% of referrals last year in Richmond were about neglect, and 13% for Kingston.

Difficulties in working with neglect are common for practitioners in the UK yet it is the most common reason for there to be a Child Protection Plan and the lifetime cost has been estimated to be £89,000 per person.

Oldham LSCB has carried out a case review following a non-accidental head injury to an 11-week-old boy as a result of shaking. Children’s Social Care had been involved with family previously over concerns about the neglect of three older siblings, who were later removed from mother’s care. The mother was charged with neglect & the father with neglect and Section 18
wounding.

So what is neglect?​
Neglect is the constant failing to meet a child or young person’s basic needs, resulting in serious effects on their health, development or learning. Neglect can occur in pregnancy through maternal substance abuse. The impact of neglect of children is often accumulative, advancing gradually and unnoticed and therefore there is a risk that agencies do not intervene early enough to prevent harm. It is common for evidence of neglect to present through signs and symptoms which may be noticed by different agencies in relation to different children in the family at different points in time. Agencies need to feel confident in the recognising and the naming of neglect.

It is important that all agencies, Health,schools /Education, Police, Probation, Housing, Voluntary and Community, Faith Organisations identify emerging problems and potential unmet needs and seek to address them as early as possible. It is equally important that practitioners are alert to the danger of drift and ‘start again’ syndrome.

Children being neglected, or at risk of being neglected, need to be seen, heard and helped. If we call all adopt these aims below, then we can make a difference
• Seen: in the context of their lives at home, friendship circles, health, education and public spaces (including social media).
• Heard: to effectively protect children and young people, all professionals need to take time to hear what children are saying and put themselves in the child or young person’s shoes and think about what their life might truly be like.
• Helped: by remaining professionally curious and by implementing effective and imaginative solutions that help children and young people. Professionals should give parents and families clear information in relation to expectations and improvements.
