Since the begging, there has been an overwhelming amount of support and excitement surrounding the judo program across the Territory, which in no small part was generated by Mario Desforges who laid the groundwork for the foundation and growth that we are now starting to see. While most recreational programs in the country naturally hit some lulls in participation due to the covid-19 pandemic, the NWT Judo Association was able to triple its participation.
JUDO THROUGHOUT THE NORTH
NWT Judo strives to increase the physical activity of people throughout the territory with Judo, and is dedicated to developing judoka from grassroots to high performance athletes. We work to provide a fun learning atmosphere both in the school system, specifically throughout the Dehcho District, as well as hubs in Yellowknife and Inuvik.
