Protect clean sport

We all have a responsibility to protect clean sport.

As the sportscotland recognised governing body for Judo in Scotland, JudoScotland takes its responsibility to anti-doping seriously. Every athlete has the right to compete in a sport where all athletes are clean, we work closely with British Judo, UKAD and sportscotland to ensure that the integrity of the sport is protected.
