We were delighted to learn that JudoScotland member Andrew Milne successfully achieved his 1st Dan after 33 years participating in judo. Just 18 months ago, Andrew underwent open heart surgery, and during his recovery made himself three promises to complete before he turned 50. One of these was to achieve his 1st Dan. We are delighted for you Andrew. Well done for also completing your other two challenges: walking the West Highland Way in four days and also climbing Ben Vorlich. Congratulations from everyone at JudoScotland. 

As part of UK Active's European Week of Sport, many sports clubs will be participating in "Club Open Doors Week" during 23-30 September, in collaboration with sportscotland. Check out their website for an opportunity to try a new sport, and stay active.
