JudoScotland is saddened to hear of the passing of Donald Hughes, 5th Dan aged 90 years.
Donald was born in 1933 and started Judo at 29. Dedicating a lifetime to being active in Judo, he set up and ran a number of clubs, including the Etassakwai, Craiglockhart JC, Ainsley Park Leisure Centre JC, Leith Judokwai, Craiglockhart JC, and Drumbrae Leisure Centre JC.
Donald devoted over 60 years to his beloved judo and thousands of people experienced his judo coaching during his lifetime.
We extend our condolences to his own family and the huge judo family he knew over so many years.
