Over the weekend of 17th & 18th February, 34 clubs and 486 competitors took part in the 2018 National Scottish Championships, at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility in Motherwell.
After the success of last years event, and a new two day format, it was repeated again this year, with a slight difference, as the children 13 years and under competed on the Saturday, and the Sunday was for competitors aged 14 and over. During the welcome speech on Sunday morning, a presentation was made on behalf of ITF Scotland Board to Ian Ford, ITF Junior Male Sparring -50kg World Champion 2017 as recognition of his win.
ITF Scotland’s Honorary President Grand Master MacCallum was in attendance over both days, and presented trophies to the Overall Winners of each age Category.
