About JudoScotland

As the sportscotland – recognised national governing body for the Olympic sport of Judo, JudoScotland represents our members, clubs, individual disciplines and hundreds of qualified, enthusiastic and committed volunteers delivering Judo across Scotland.

We believe that the Olympic sport of Judo has the potential to have a major impact on the lives of the Scottish population and in particular on younger citizens. Our sport has an inherent ability to engender respect for others, a sense of fair-play, develops a personal confidence and self-discipline within its participants, along with the obvious potential for an improvement.

Understanding Talent.


JudoScotland values the hard work of our member clubs without whom we wouldn’t be able to develop Judo in Scotland.


We want to make judo accessible to whoever wants to take part, as a JudoScotland member you will have access to a variety of benefits.


Coaches are at the front line of judo and are an integral part of clubs. We provide continuous professional development for coaches already on the pathway.

"If there is effort, there is always accomplishment."
