On Saturday, over 100 judoka from across the country gathered at Glasgow Caledonian University for the biggest-ever Scottish Student Sport Kyu Grade Tournament. The event, which is open to all senior players that are 2nd kyu and below, saw competitors coming from some of the big university clubs Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling, Strathclyde and St Andrews however half of the competitors were also made up of judoka from smaller university and non-university clubs.

This event wasn’t just about the competitors, with a diverse voluntary workforce, including some who were officiating for the first time, the event allowed the development of referees and officials to help build a sustainable workforce for future Scottish Judo events. The Scottish Student Sports Team were able to lead the way for Scottish Judo events by Live Streaming the competition via their YouTube channel.

A fantastic event and we look forward to your next one!
