Our emphasis is on safety first, fun second. Kyushu Ju-Jitsu will provide youth with fitness, a way to learn focus and concentration as well as learning about conflict avoidance through non-violent means. Our goal is to help students gain confidence in themselves and their abilities and boost self-esteem.

Youth have a blast during our classes
- Bow-in and a few minutes of meditation.
- Ten minute warm-up consisting of relay races, obstacle courses or games.
- A few minutes of stretching.
- Rolls and breakfalls. Ju-Jitsu consists of learning to fall or tumble properly.
- Slowly encouraging youth not to fear tumbling literally head-over-heels.
- Matt work. Learning body mechanics and how to re-direct an attack rather then oppose it. Take downs, throws, sweeps and holds, punching, kicking and joint locks are all part of the system.
- Weapons. Our youth practice with Bokken (wooden sword) several times a month. Consisting of techniques used by the Kyushu-ryu samurai.
