Our Judo club hosted this tournament on December 3rd, 2011. It turns out I got more shots that were decent than I thought. When I walked out, it felt like it had been a BAD day of shooting. I’m pleasantly surprised.

Pacific International Judo Tournament – 2011

20 02 2011

Pacific International Judo Tournament
Steveston Judo Club
Richmond, BC, Canada

Over 140 top class athletes came from Canada, USA, and Japan. Competition was fierce and the Judo – nothing short of thrilling!

The tournament was open to Green belt and up – No Juniors. It still ran for almost 8 hours!  I can’t believe I actually got the photos all processed and posted within a day! I took over 600 photos and ended up with about 75 that I’m happy with.

The whole set can be seen at my Flickr:
