Fun for Kids in Graeagle
Feather River Kodenkan Jujitsu
Self-defense and Sports
Kids classes are initially a mix of games, and learning physical skills that are a preparation for learning self-defense techniques that are taught at a more advanced stage. Children learn strengthening exercises, foot and hand coordination, and balance; all elements that increase confidence in their physical abilities. They learn how to roll and fall safely. FRKJ also lets them do various competitive matches, for example a mild form of sumo wrestling. It helps them to understand their responses to physical contact with others. Only after their basic skills have evolved sufficiently do we teach the basic techniques of Yawara. And once their falling techniques have developed sufficiently we begin to teach throwing techniques. Click here for more information.
