Congratulations to JudoScotland Board member David Gibson 4th Dan who has been awarded the British Judo Senior Examiner position.

This has been a long and challenging journey for David as he was close to completing the qualification when the Covid-19 pandemic impacted our lives.

David’s determination to succeed in completing the qualification was apparent once Covid restrictions were lifted.

This qualification is very important for JudoScotland as David joins the small team of Senior Examiners who manage the Dan Grading contests in Scotland and assess the technical competencies and knowledge of the players.

David is also the organiser of the well-established monthly Scottish  Masters training and coaching sessions and the force behind holding Masters National Promotion Examinations, to ensure our more mature players can compete against similar age groups.
