It is with great sadness that we have recently lost a member of the Scottish Judo family.
Joseph (Joe) Doherty 6th Dan, passed peacefully on the 29th of June in the company of his family at his home in Port Glasgow. He put up a brave fight as he did in his 60+ years in our sport.
Joe was a hard player, Scottish champion, coach, former SJF committee member, sponsor, examiner, referee and a great supporter of all things family and judo. Founder and coach at St Ninians JC then Boglestone JC. He will be missed for his good sense of humour, can-do attitude, stoicism, generosity and always someone to help you when necessary.
