About the Continental Crown

For many years the Continental Crown Judo Tournament has been a showcase event for judo athletes on the west coast of the United States. The Continental Crown is a USA Judo Senior Class-E and Junior Class-D event, and consistently features some of the highest caliber judo players in the country. This year we happily invite judo players from all over the Pacific Rim and the world to participate in the spirit of international friendship and competition. The Continental Crown is located in the Seattle, Washington area, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Seattle is the birthplace of Judo on the mainland of the United States and it is our distinct honor to host such a prestigious judo event in our state.
