Judo as a Competitive Sport
For those interested in competitive judo, there are many opportunities to develop as an athlete from the club right up to the Olympic level. Within Canada, there are various club, regional, provincial and national competitions for all ages. In 1964, Judo was included in the summer Olympic Games program. Since that time, Canadian judo athletes have won two silver and two bronze medals at the Olympics and many more medals at the World championships and other international competitions.
