About this event

Jujitsu has many benefits, mental, physical, and emotional especially in children. Not only does Jujitsu focus on building physical fitness, but it also improves children’s focus, develops positive attitudes about sports in general, and increases self-esteem, self-discipline, self-respect, and courtesy toward others. Jujitsu is an excellent activity for young kids because it builds healthy and strong muscles early on, improves their cardiovascular fitness, and lowers their cholesterol. Children who participate in Jujitsu have a reduced risk of childhood obesity, heart disease, and osteoporosis, even as they leave childhood and become adults. It also sets the foundation for them to become healthy and active adults who appreciate the importance of physical activity. Jujitsu gives children an outlet for their boundless energy while also discouraging violent behavior.

The youth program is centered on the sport aspects of Jujitsu, focusing on recreation and competition

UNITED STATES JU-JITSU ® (USJJF) has a long and positive history of conducting Regional, National and International Championships in Sport Ju-Jitsu.

One of the most exciting elements of Jujitsu is the broad spectrum of skills it encompasses.

Training follows a three week rotation. Each week focuses on one phase of a Jujitsu competition. Then the cycle repeats

Phase 1 – Atemi Waza “Hits for Jits”. Athletes learn punching, blocking, and kicking skills. These skills will build the foundation of what will follow. Training on these weeks will look a lot like a Karate / Bare Knuckle Boxing class

Phase 2 – Nage Waza – Throwing & Takedown Techniques. The strikes and blocks that were trained in the previous week will be used to set up the throws that will be trained this week. Training on these weeks will look a lot like a Judo / Wrestling class.

Phase 3 – Katame Waza “Grappling”. The 3rd Phase of a Jujitsu Match includes the Holds, Locks and Submissions used for ground fighting (ne waza). Training on these weeks will look a lot like a Wrestling / BJJ class. Although this may look like a BJJ class we do not start on our back. So guess what? Groundwork will start with strikes (Phase 1) that set up throws (Phase 2). Throws will be used to put the opponent on the ground (Phase 3). Only then can ground work begin to gain a submission.
