Ken Stavenes


Ken began training with the UBC Judo Club in 1995 and has been instructing with UBC Judo for the past 10 years. During his time at UBC he has also had the opportunity to train with other martial arts clubs including the former UBC Arnis Club and former UBC Sambo club.

He believes that Judo is taught as both a sport and a martial art. The UBC Judo club focuses equally on the various aspects of judo. As a sport, it is a fun and high-intensity activity, which develops overall strength and endurance.
