Total Body Defence ju Jitsu is a very realistic based self defence system and as such, we can not endorse children learning the exact same style as the adults for obvious reasons.
HOWEVER! What we do endorse is a system tailored for juniors which prepares them in readiness for moving into more senior classes going forward. We utilise all training gear that we can to allow the children to do the technique in a more real and controlled situation without the instructor, child or children being hurt.
With the knowledge that the Team brings to the classes they are able to build up a syllabus that allows our Juniors to learn crucial core elements including Footwork, balance taking, throws, locks, restraints, strikes all with control and safe timing whilst also having fun.
We also provide the fitness and discipline that every young organisation needs in order to produce future black belts. We do pad drills, games, and scenario work that is all monitored and parents are welcome and encouraged to watch.
We believe that family is the most important thing and as evidence of this many of the Instructors’ own children train and some have recently graduated into the senior section based on there hard work and mental focus in demonstrations.
Obviously the classes are run separately to the adult classes as we do not want anyone who is not mature enough in themselves (This includes adults) learning the survival techniques that we teach in the older classes. However this does not mean they do not have fun and learn very important structured lessons! Just ask them yourself! :)
No weapons or dangerous techniques are taught at the junior classes.
All instructors are fully qualified and are CRB checked
