We want to make Judo accessible to whoever wants to take part and as such we are offering everyone in Scotland who is starting Judo for the first time four months FREE provisional membership.
There are many benefits to doing judo. Not only is Judo great fun, a great way of making new friends, it’s also a great way of gaining confidence and getting physically fit.
Your FREE provisional membership will allow you to get a real flavour of the sport - fully insured - at your local Judo club, before signing up to a full JudoScotland membership.
After the first four months you can continue on your judo journey by simply renewing your provisional membership to a full JudoScotland membership.
Please Note: Certain membership benefits are unavailable on a provisional JudoScotland membership (e.g. Grading), in order to receive the full plethora of JudoScotland membership benefits you will need to upgrade. However any time remaining at the point of upgrading will automatically be added onto your first full membership.
