Notes for parents:
At Goshinkan JuJitsu, we recognize that young children are developing the physical and mental skills that will serve them for the rest of their lives. We try to facilitate this development through the use of gross motor skills and curriculum that develop coordination and focus. Your child will be challenged to perform new techniques and learn about Ju-Jitsu and themselves.
Our Martial Arts program is not for sport and it is not a drill camp. We are focused on self-defence and safety. Along with our self-defence techniques, we teach awareness and personal safety. Our environment is friendly and fun however, children are expected to respect their teachers and peers, focus on techniques and lessons being taught and review their safety skills at home.
As the parent of a Junior Shogun, we ask that you support your child as he or she develops new skills and learns new concepts. All of our classes are open and you can come watch as often as you like.
