The next EmpowerHER Judo Session will take place on February 16 (9647 62nd Avenue, Edmonton) from 6:30-8:00 pm at Tokugawa Judo Club. This session is open to all ages and skill levels. We will play some fun Judo games, do some technical, and end the session with a speaker session. Our speaker for this event will be Ana Laura Portuondo Isasi. 

Before 2023, the last time Ana Laura Portuondo Isasi participated in an international competition was the 2017 Senior World Championships. She won World Junior Bronze in 2014 and placed fifth in 2013. Ana Laura won her first senior World Cup in 2015 in Buenos Aires and has been Canadian National Champion in all age categories. Unfortunately, she was hampered by multiple concussions and decided to put her judo career on hold. However, she decided to come back to competitive Judo in 2023. She has had a triumphant return, winning the Montréal Pan-American Open and competing at the 2024 Portugal Grand Prix.
