We respect the privacy of the children who train with us, and thus do not post pictures of the youth classes.
You are more than welcome to drop by and observe or have your child participate in a class,
and to discuss our program with the other parents.


Even in the youth (ages 6-13) classes, our students learn traditional jujitsu. We make the classes fun, but expect a certain level of focus and dedication from the students. Age is not necessarily an indicator, as each child is different; some students (of any age) have the focus, some do not.

The best way to find out is to bring your child and have them try a class! That way you and we can see how the child does, and mutually decide whether they're ready to join yet.

On the personal side, students in the youth classes learn:

  • respect for self and others
  • focus
  • self-discipline
  • confidence

    They also learn:

  • the fundamentals of self protection
  • situational awareness
  • coordination
  • body and spatial awareness
  • how to roll and fall safely
  • proper form for punches and kicks
  • Japanese terms and concepts

    We do not spar, and students under the age of 18 are not eligible to earn a black belt. As they advance, they will become eligible to join the juniors class.

    The youth in our classes quickly learn that size is not an issue in performing techniques. What we teach does not need size or strength to perform, because it takes advantage of the way the human body is built. The students particularly enjoy being able to make techniques work on someone several times their size!

    Read what one of our students has to say about training in the youth class.

    Parents are always welcome to watch our classes, and to discuss our program with the other parents whose children attend. Enrollments are ongoing, so you can join at any time of the month.
