Equality, Diversity and Inclusion


We recognise, respect and value people’s differences by promoting an inclusive culture for all members; we hope that in doing so we can help all members reach their full judo potential. As a sport, Judo is inherently equal. Every Judoka steps onto the mat in a judogi and will work through the grading syllabus. As an individual, the only visually distinguishing feature is their grade which is displayed through the colour of their belt.

We aim to provide opportunities to ensure that everyone has the chance to participate in Judo in Scotland. Our judo inclusion Group are currently working with clubs and Scottish Disability Sport to identify these opportunities. In the meantime, if you would like more information about how you can get involved contact the Business Delivery Team at JudoScotland on 0131 333 2981 or email info@judoscotland.com.


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.

"Judo should be free as art and science from any external influences, political, national, racial, and financial or any other organized interest. And all things connected with it should be directed to its ultimate object, the "Benefit of Humanity."
