For 8 to 13 Year Olds

Our Junior Shogun™ Black Stripe Program is a martial arts program for boys and girls ages 8 – 13, and is based on research and education with the combination of personal safety skills and ju jitsu techniques.

This program is based on a traditional stripe color belt system and when the student reaches the last level in the Junior Shogun program they are placed in the Junior Shogun™ Black Stripe Program. The program is very similar to the teens and adults ju jitsu programs however it still utilizes the striping system.

The Junior Shogun™ Black Stripe Program consists of the following:

  • Advanced Stances Break-falls
  • Advanced Blocks
  • Advanced Hand Techniques
  • Advanced Kicking Techniques
  • Advanced Take-downs
  • Advanced After Throws
  • Advanced Hold Downs
  • Advanced Hold Escapes
  • Self-Defense

Notes for parents:

At Goshinkan Ju Jitsu, 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-defense and safety. Along with our self-defense 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.
