Congratulations to JudoScotland’s Paul McGuiness and Fergus Pirie on completing the Senior Examiner Pathway!

This qualification means they manage contests in Scotland and assess the technical competencies and knowledge of the players at National Dan Gradings.

Paul said: “I’m delighted to become a Senior Examiner, it’s a fantastic opportunity for me to expand my knowledge further.”

Fergus said: “I am really pleased to complete the Senior Examiner Pathway and become a Senior Examiner. I was invited on to the pathway back in August 2017 by Paul McGuinness and Tam Brown, and at one point was unsure if I would complete it due to health issues and the pandemic.  A lot of the skills required are forgettable skills, therefore I would like to thank my fellow Senior Examiners and my own and local Clubs for their help and support, and look forward to working with Rick Kenney and his team of Senior Examiners, to provide wider opportunities for all judoka to progress along the grading pathway, both competitive and technical.”

Well done, guys!
