New Grading and Kata Committees

On December 3, 2021, Judo Saskatchewan was advised that Judo Canada had taken a decision to separate Kata Development and Grading into two independent committees.  The Judo Canada Grading Committee will continue to be chaired by Daniel De Angelis and the Judo Canada Kata Committee will be chaired by Mohamad Hassani.  Kimberly Bergey Kaip was appointed to the Judo Canada Kata Committee.
The Judo Saskatchewan Board has aligned our committees with the Judo Canada model.  The Board consulted with the high dans and selected the three highest ranks to be on the Provincial Grading Committee.

Chairperson Dale Richard Berglund (Rokudan)
Member       Kimberly Bergey Kaip  (Rokudan)
Member       Robb Karaim           (Rokudan)

The Board then consulted with the high dans and others and selected our highest certified kata judge and two of our kata clinicians to be on the Provincial Kata Committee and lead us in kata development.

We extend many thanks to the outgoing members of the Grading Committee for their dedicated service over many years.
