Welcome to Alaska Judo,

Alaska’s governing body for the Olympic sport of Judo

Alaska Judo is shaping Alaska by providing physical fitness opportunities, clinics and tournaments for children, adults and families throughout the year.

Alaska Judo is a 501(c)(3) all volunteer non-profit organization. Your generous donation allows us to help more kids to “become fine citizens through physical education” (Dr. Jigor Kano – founder of Judo). Judo is more than a martial art, sport or a physical fitness program. It is a vehicle to help kids develop the skills they need to succeed in life.

  • perseverance
  • determination
  • sportsmanship
  • confidence
  • friendship

Thank you for your generosity and support.

    State championship survey

    If you attended the 2015 Alaska State Judo Championships, please take a moment to fill out a survey to help us improve the championships for next year.


    A quick note on the survey results.

    We had 35 replys to the survey,  thank you for your input.

    The majority really liked the Venue, the hotel setup, the online process, the registration and weigh-in process at the Hotel and the website.

    The majority really liked the use of set weight divisions and the use of the Texas match system.  We will continue to work to improve

    the Texas Match system and the flow of the matches and to get the division / brackets posted.

    There were a few items pointed out regarding some typos in the schedule of events which we will improve on next year.

    We recieved mixed results regarding the awards banquet and the timing of awarding the medals.  We will look at improving / changing

    the awards presentation time, location, format, etc.  so we can make your State Championship experince as best as possible.
