It’s fair to say judo has a grip on Carcross.

Hiroshikai Judo Club hosted its fifth annual Carcross Judo Championships at the Ghuch Tla Community School on Jan. 21.

Forty-six athletes representing four clubs — Hiroshikai (HRK), Golden Horn Judo (GHJ), Shiroumakai Judo (SHK) and Northern Lights Judo (NLJ) — competed in the shiai (contest).

Carcross had been without a judo club for about a decade before the current Hiroshikai club was founded by Beverly James in 2012. James received an honourary black belt in September to commemorate her many years of contribution to the sport in Yukon.
