The event saw 300 competitors come out from across the province, including 21 from Fort Saskatchewan.
 
Competitors ranging in age from under 10 to over 50 were invited to compete in the event, which encompassed all varieties of height, weight, and experience levels.
 
The Provincial Championships will be followed in March by the Edmonton International Judo Championships and Judo Symposium.
