Lifetime Membership and Hall of Fame

Learn More

As an organisation, we are committed to achieving corporate excellence and our Board and Staff are continually challenging what we can do better.

One of the things identified by the Board a number of months ago was the need to have clarity on the criteria, selection and approval process for JudoScotland Lifetime Membership and Hall of Fame Awards.

JudoScotland Lifetime Membership recognises an individual’s exceptional contribution to judo in Scotland whilst our Hall of Fame awards recognise an individual’s exceptional achievements within judo.

Both awards are based on not only an individual’s contribution and / or achievement but based on the individual consistently demonstrating the values within judo’s moral code.

We encourage members to nominate individuals who meet the criteria and who they think are deserving of these prestigious awards.

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.
