Land of Lakes Tournament

Oct 12, 2019 - Oct 12, 2019 |

    The Land of Lakes Tournament occurred on Saturday, October 12th in Eagan, Minnesota.

    82 competitors ranging in age from 7 to mid-50's travelled from 6 states, including MN, ND, SD, IA IL and WI to attend the tournament this year. Due to an early season winter storm, participants from Canada and some from Northern MN were unable to attend.

    The Land of Lakes Tournament was first held in 1992 by Perry Forstrom and Guy Odishaw with the assistance of Sensei Brett Wood Taylor of Welcome Mat Judo Club (Fond du Lac, WI). Since, the competition has grown to 80+ competitors.

    They are excited to continue to grow the tournament with local, regional and even international competitors.
