Get involved! Finding your nearest Judo club is easy, Get started here...
We want to make judo accessible to whoever wants to take part. We're offering everyone in Scotland who is starting Judo for the first time four months FREE provisional membership!
There are many benefits to doing judo. Not only is judo great fun and a fantastic way of making new friends, it can also boost confidence as well as improving physical fitness.
Your FREE provisional membership will allow you to get a real flavour of the sport - fully insured - at your local judo club, before signing up to a full JudoScotland membership.
After the first four months you can continue on your judo journey by simply renewing your provisional membership to a full JudoScotland membership.
As a JudoScotland member you will have access to a variety of benefits, most notably being covered by Personal Accident & Civil Liability insurance, should anything happen to yourself or your opponent on the mat. For this reason we require that you take out a JudoScotland membership, after your 4th session on the mat.
Further benefits to JudoScotland members include:
- Nationally recognised grading scheme (certificates & badges);
- Attend/enter JudoScotland events;
- Membership record book;
- Access to performance coaching support (subject to qualification criteria);
- National Squad selection(s): Cadet, Junior, Senior & Master;
- Free membership to the Kai Club (under 8);
- Development events (including 'Skills sCool', 'Mad About Judo' and Come & Meet events);
- Subsidised coach education/revalidation workshops;
- Opportunity and support to progress through various volunteer pathways.
Please note: Certain membership benefits are unavailable on a provisional JudoScotland membership (e.g. Grading). In order to receive the full plethora of JudoScotland membership benefits, you'll need to upgrade. Any time remaining at the point of upgrading will automatically be added on to your first full membership.
