After over a decade in the role, Tam Brown has retired as National Grading Officer for Scotland. Throughout his tenure, Tam has contributed to the development of hundreds of Judoka and Officials, standardising the assessment process and advocating for senior examiners in Scotland.

Head of Business Delivery at JudoScotland, Tony Penfold said “Tam has given himself tirelessly to the role over the years, offering judoka valuable help through their judo journey. The sport has benefitted from his dedication, and he will be greatly missed at National gradings. We wish Tam the best of luck in the future and as a keen fisherman, hope that he enjoys some valuable time by the water.”

Tam added, “I have enjoyed every minute in the role and have been lucky enough to make a lot of friends along the way.”

JudoScotland would like to take this opportunity to wish Tam all the best in the future and we look forward to welcoming him back to events as a guest.
