Welcome to the Ottawa Judo Club

The OTTAWA JUDO CLUB is located in the National Capital Region in Kanata, Ontario, Canada. The Ottawa Judo Club’s main goal is to help people reach their potential both physically and mentally. The Ottawa Judo Club prides itself on the quality of their instructors and the excellent teacher-to-student ratio. The Ottawa Judo Club is known for its family atmosphere and for helping our members support their pursuit to become stronger, more confident and to foster friendships, while developing leaders in our community.  In 2017 the Ottawa Judo has the 6th largest membership with Judo Ontario.


The sensei’s at the Ottawa Judo Club have been an amazing influence on my children. Being new to Canada, the Ottawa Judo club has helped them feel welcomed and at home.  The OJC has been instrumental in their increased self-confidence. Every sensei’s sincere concern for each one of my kids has had a great and deep effect on them.
