A non-profit, charitable Society, the Kamloops Judo Club has spent over 60 years providing a safe environment for the physical, mental and moral development of boys, girls, men and women of all ages.
Judo cultivates alertness, concentration and self-confidence, as well as, the attitude of fair play and sportsmanship. Judo is both a recreational and competitive sport, and is safe, fun and exciting for everyone. Walk into any judo class and smiles speak for themselves.
Judo is a teaching for life itself and with it, we learn to overcome the pitfalls of everyday living.
The “Art of Gentleness”
Judo was founded in 1882 in Japan by Dr. Jigoro Kano, a professor at the University of Tokyo, who modified and improved the martial art of Jujitsu. He developed Judo into a safe sport by eliminating the more deadly techniques such as hitting, kicking and slashing, and by retaining and refining throws, locks and grappling techniques.
Celebrating over 60 Years!
The Kamloops Judo Club would like to thank all the students, parents, volunteers, coaches, Dojos throughout the world, and the community of Kamloops for their ongoing support and endless efforts.
Together we have built a club that has been proud to teach the sport of judo, as well as offer a lifetime of memories to those who have come through its doors.
Our most sincere appreciation to you all.
