Club History

The Upper Canada Judo Club was formed in February, 2002 by Mr. D. Burt.  Our students have won medals at all levels of competition including provincials and nationals.  Black belt instructors are highly experienced and NCCP certified.  The emphasis of our club is competitive judo, however, we also offer recreational programs.

The Upper Canada Judo Club is very proud of our blend of juniors, seniors and families.  Many families include children, parents and even grandparents participating together.

Our club motto is "Building strength and character through judo".
