Queen's Park Judo Club

The Queen’s Park Judo Club (QPJC) first opened its doors to the public on November 7th, 1996 at the Royal Air Forces Association building, Queen’s Park East. The club was established partly in response to a local effort to offer judo to the wider public via newly formed clubs in Port of Spain, Arima and San Fernando. The QPJC was the first group to take up the challenge and today remains a steadfast advocate of the principles of judo, in the dojo and out. The dojo has subsequently moved from the Savannah location and is now permanently located at #33 Picton Street, Newtown, Port-of-Spain.

One of the club’s main objectives is to increase participation in judo, especially among school children. Thus in addition to training sessions held at the QPJC dojo, classes take place at primary schools and secondary schools throughout Port of Spain. One of the more recent undertakings of the club was the commencement of judo classes at the St. James Police Youth Club in 2013.

In 2000 the QPJC became the first judo organization in T&T to be registered as a non-profit company and continues to be the pioneer for Judo in T&T.
