JudoScotland is delighted that our flagship coach development event is back for its 10th Year. From its conception, the gathering has hosted some incredible guests from the world of Judo including Go Tsunoda, Katsuhiko Kashiwazaki and Hidetoshi Nakanishi, as well as homegrown talents such as Euan Burton and the Glasgow 2014 medallists.

This year will be no different, as we line up Three-time World Champion Masashi Ebinuma to lead a weekend full of Judo! We will also welcome a selection of other guests including Neil Adams MBE 9th Dan, Greg Valentine the lead physical preparation coach for JudoScotland and the sportscotland institute of sport, Dr Andy Dalziell, a child development specialist who co-designed the Better Movers & Thinkers programme. The content this year is designed to bring the new JudoScotland Player development Framework, launching in September, to life in a practical way.

But the Gathering is about so much more than what happens on the mat! Don’t just take our word for it, here is what last year’s attendees had to say;

“I like the fact for me it’s the opportunity to learn from others whether it’s the world-class coaches or your Uke or others around on the Tatami, to learn and to have that shared experience. I also like how it’s the coming together of our Scottish Judo community (although it’s open to all) to mutually benefit all and to meet, train, socialise and have some fun !!”

“A great opportunity to catch up with friends from other clubs, have a bit of a social and take part in excellently coached sessions.”

“Very good Judo sessions. There was a very friendly atmosphere all weekend. A nice venue. Everyone involved was approachable and helpful.”
