JUNIOR PROGRAM

We have created a program that teaches the fundamentals of judo and character development to kinder and teens between ages 5-15 years old. We teach students to respect themselves and others through physical and mental training.

Our lessons include:

  • Proper Dojo-Etiquette

  • Judo Terminology 

  • Ukemi (Breakfall Techniques)

  • Nage-Waza (Throwing Technique) 

  • Osae-Waza (Pinning Techniques)

 

Sensei Bunasawa has been teaching his program to our youth and creating champions for over 40 years. He will tailor his methods to fit each child's individual need and help them reach their full potential. This program is open to all children Tuesday and Friday of each week starting at 5pm.

 

Our friendly, family oriented dojo is a great environment for children and parents to learn the art of judo and self defense. Sign up to try a FREE WEEK or just stop by the dojo for more information!
