The Beginning
Founded in the early 1970s, the Port Coquitlam Judo Club has been around for over 30 years. We’ve gone from a small club to one of the largest clubs in the Province of British Columbia. We’ve had hundreds of students on our mats, and have an alumni of over 30 black belts, many of whom are still actively involved with the club.

The Eighties
In the 1980s, the Port Coquitlam Judo Club was a dominating force in many of the local tournaments. If was not uncommon for our club to earn over 30 trophies from a single tournament! We have even held our own tournaments at George Pearkes Junior Secondary and Terry Fox Senior Secondary schools during the mid-80s up until the early 90s. Our tournaments were extremely popular, as we gave out T-Shirts to every person who entere

The Nineties and the Present
The 1990s saw our Judo improve to a National level, where we have had several Judoka compete and even win at the Winter Games and Canadian National Judo Championships. We have had at least 6 competitors win the Nationals, and many more who have gone to compete.

Not only are we known for our competitors, we have a good foundation of coaches and referees who regularly attend all the local tournaments. Our Judoka have also been known to visit tournaments in Washington State, Alberta, Vancouver Island and the Interior.
