Beginners Freestyle Judo/BJJ
This beginner level introduction to Freestyle Judo/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches the kids the beginner level skills and teaches the languages used in this unique martial art.
Children are taught the basic skills needed to train safely in this martial art. Children with no martial arts experience will benefit from this beginner level program.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was formed from the martial art Judo some time ago so it was a very easy transition into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Judokaa Martial Arts in 2010. Judokaa started Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after a few of the fighters were wanting to expand their fighting skills into this complementary martial art.
Freestyle Judo allows us to teach the best movements from both styles with a safe environment for the kids in the program. Free Style Judo was introduced when the BJJ here in Ontario started to change the rules to allow very young children movements that could result in injuries to the fighters. Judokaa made a choice to error on the side of safety with the kids.
Judokaa started entering and winning right from the very start. We call it the “Judokaa Difference” and while other BJJ clubs try to bring their judo skills up to our level all we had to do was teach old school judo.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was a great safe martial art for kids but only if the coaches and instructors assure it stays that way. Here in Ontario there are many NON SANTIONED clubs and events which puts children at risk. Judokaa will have no part of that and will only attend sanctioned safe events.
Our head instructor has made teaching safe martial arts our top priority and while we have lost a few students to the non sanctioned environment we would rather have it that way than seeing even one student put at risk.
