“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” – Mark Twain

Who plays? There are a number of strong Judo Clubs in Scottish Tertiary Institutions, and this contributes to a healthy scene for the sport in Scotland.

What is there? A series of Scottish Universities League fixtures between Universities take place early in the academic year, as teams and individual hone their skills for the Scottish Universities Championships. In both events, fighters are broadly grouped according to their weight and grade.

Scottish students attend many national and regional events, as they aim to improve their skill in their sport and to accrue the points necessary to improve their grading. Scottish University students also play a full part in the British Universities Judo Championships.

When does all this happen? All the events are generally on the weekends and spaced throughout the course of the academic year.
