Our Children’s Jujitsu Self-Defense class is specially designed using Danzan Ryu Jujitsu into a simple to learn self-defense class. In the course of learning self-defense techniques, young students gain the benefit of patience, exercise, self control, and discipline; it will also helps to improve their coordination, self esteem, and physical strength. Areas stressed include avoiding confrontations, always striving to improve, learning the discipline to continue and not give up, how to focus, and respect for others. A belt ranking system is used to distinguish proficiency and seniority.
Children learn and progress at their own rate through personalized instruction based on their individual strengths and weaknesses. We group children by rank so they can focus on techniques that are appropriate for their skill level and ability. Children practice techniques with a partner of the same skill level and with a black belt instructor who will guide and assists them with their individual progress.
We teach and practice Danzan Ryu Jujitsu which is Japanese Jujitsu, not to be confused with Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. In both they are used defensively, but just like everything that has similar names they are different. Some differences between Jujitsu and Jiu-jitsu are very subtle and then some are more profound. If you have any questions about the difference between Jujitsu and Jiu-jitsu feel free to email us and ask.
