We are excited to launch the second intake to The JudoScotland Coach Academy in association with Neil Adams Effective Fighting. This two year programme will recruit up to ten coaches from across the country with a view to improve their awareness of the ‘craft of coaching’; improving their technical knowledge and help them on the road to independent coaching through a dedicated programme of continued professional development.

On completion of the programme each coach should be qualified to Level 2 in Coaching Judo and be in a position to support improved sustainability, additionality or development of the club’s programme. They will also have a clearer view of our performance pathway and be on their way to working with athletes within it.

We are delighted that Neil Adams MBE from Neil Adams Effective Fighting and Masashi Ebinuma will work closely with each coach throughout the programme looking at their technical aspects of their coaching and providing the coach with some golden nuggets to add to their coaching.

Each coach will be able to access:
• 3 x Blueprint Sessions
• 3 x Disability Inclusion Training for Judo
• The Gathering annual weekend seminar
• 2 x Kata course
• 3 x 1 hour online one to one sessions with Neil Adams MBE
• 1 x exclusive academy group session with Neil Adams MBE
• 1 x exclusive academy group session with Masashi Ebinuma
