Hui O Judo Eternal
Hui-O-Judo, 1976

Hui-O-Judo was founded by Sensei Ken Tamai in 1968 at the Berwyn Heights Community Center to teach both competitive and recreational judo to students of all ages (juniors and seniors, ages 5 and older).  The club practices judo throughout the year with the exception of short breaks in the summer and the winter.  The summer break follows the annual club picnic and precedes the beginning of a new school year.  The winter break follows the club Christmas/Holiday Party and precedes the beginning of a new calendar year.

Hui-O-Judo developed and grew through the 1970's.  The club captured its first team trophy (junior division) in 1976 at the Eastern Invitational held at the Police Academy in Washington, DC.  The junior team successfully defended the team title in 1977 and 1978.  A junior team comprising Karl Tamai, Robert Fetrow, Kevin Tamai, Chang Cho, and Billy Veater placed second in a five-man team competition at the Jamie Tower's  Invitational in New York City in 1979.

Hui-O-Judo outgrew the Berwyn Heights dojo in 1981, and relocated to the current dojo at the Beltsville Community Center.  The new dojo permitted Hui-O-Judo to host local tournaments and Shufu Yudanshakai events.  Sensei Tamai acquired new mats in 1994 to provide for the continued growth in the club.  Sensei Tamai coached the Shufu Female Youth Team to a USJF national title in 1991 and a second place finish in 1997.   The Shufu Male Youth Team had a strong showing in 1997 placing third.  Hui-O-Judo has maintain a presence in area through out the 1990's by capturing  the senior team trophy at the Beltsville Invitational in 1993 and 1997.  The club has recently achieved a Hui-O-Judo first by taking both the junior and senior team trophies at the 1999 Eastern Open.

Hui-O-Judo would like to salute the prior club members who paved the way for the club we now enjoy.
