The Samurai kids program is a traditional Japanese Jiu Jitsu program which incorporates basic wrestling takedowns as well as traditional judo throws. Then once on the ground the kids start learning basic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and other traditional Jiu Jitsu self- defense techniques. In this program you can expect your child to learn the basics of striking as well. They will progress through first learning traditional martial arts striking and then as they progress towards their Black Belt and begin training in the Black Belt Class, they will then beginning learning the fundamentals of Muay Thai Kickboxing. The Samurai Kids program is a great system which has exciting technical martial arts lesson to equip your child to defend themselves standing up or on the ground. We also focus on teaching our students to be the best they can, believe in themself, to endeavour, to respect others and to refrain from violent behaviour. This is our Dojo Kun or the rules of the Dojo, The students recite this at the beginning and at the end of every class. It is the foundation of the life lessons and the stories we tell the children.
The children in this class are ages 6-12 years. They are split into groups of 6,7 and 8 year olds and into 9,10,11 and 12 year olds. Each child is at a different stage of development and we have found the best result in separating the children into these groups.
The ultimate goal of this program is to grow your child into a Black Belt that believes in themself, has a great work ethic and positive morals and values. These are qualities that can carry them through success in their life on and off the mats.
