Cherry Blossom Kyoso competition – results

The Cherry Blossom Kyoso competition was held at Craigswood Sports Centre, Livingston on 27/10/2018.

There were only three entries from the club:

  • Glen Ferrier – AA-band U25kg pool – Gold
  • Lucy Ross – AA-band U32kg pool – Bronze
  • Alex McWatt – AA-band U34kg pool – Gold

Great results in a good development competition.

Full marks to Jidel Judo 93 for trying (successfully) something a little bit different and giving the competition a Halloween flavour. For example,  not “Mat 1” but “Pumpkin Mat”.

Bishopton session time changed for Judo on Friday 26/10/2018

Judo will be 7:30-9:00pm on Friday (26/10/2018) at Bishopton Community Centre instead of the usual 6:00-8:00pm.

2018 Glasgow European Open to be live streamed on the BBC Sport website

If you can’t make to the 2018 Glasgow European Open this weekend, you can still watch the action on the BBC Sport web site.

The BBC will be providing a commentated stream of both days of the action.

The streams will be here:

Tell your friends and relatives!

This will be a fantastic opportunity for them (and you!) to see a top-flight Judo competition with several of the UK’s best judoka in action.

You can still watch the action on the EJU web site but the BJA is keen that we use the BBC stream to demonstrate to the BBC that there is a keen interest in watching Judo – the more of you that watch the BBC stream, the more Judo there will be available to watch.
