Bushido Academy's Kids Self-Defense Classes

Here at Bushido Academy of Traditional Martial Arts' the Kids Self-Defense classes gives students an in depth training in several different martial arts systems that includes-

  • Judo & Jiu-Jitsu that emphasizes the use of large circles, small circles and leverage points on the human body to produce powerful throwing techniques and takedowns that are perfect for close quarters combat.

  • Shotokan Karate and Chang Hon Taekwondo that integrates the best and most versatile striking methods to vital target areas of the human body with devastating knock-out power and pin point accuracy.

  • Nihon Goshin Aikido, an extrapolation of Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu for modern-day self-defense, which emphasizes controlling, pinning, throwing and maiming techniques that will allow a smaller person to overcome a larger adversary.

All of the techniques are formulated in an easy to learn and easy to apply approach with eight levels or milestones, or better known as ranks. This allows the new student to develop confidence & motivation through quick success and the existing student to become more refined and technical with every rank. While also providing the student a sense of accomplishment, and goal achieving. Our children in the Kids self-defense class will be exposed to a very realistic approach to self-defense that gives them the ability to successfully deal with and end nasty attacks such as chokes, headlocks, grips and a wide variety of common bullying situations. Your child will take these skills with them for the rest of their life, giving a sense of life long protection and self-defense. 

Upon achieving adequate ranking and developing their Ukemi Waza (break fall techniques), our child students will be invited to attend our Sparring and Junior Aikido classes in parallel to their Mixed Martial Arts classes. This Junior Aikido curriculum will continue to develop each student with a vast array of self-defense principles and applications to complement their overall repertoire of techniques.
