“Thrice Armed is he who learns Jujutsu - physical, psychological, philosophical” - Shihan Jan De Jong.
As strength and size are not critical factors required to be effective at jujutsu techniques, it makes it an ideal martial art for children’s self defence.
The Colosseum offers Kids Mini-Samurai classes for ages 5-12 for white to purple and white belts inclusive.
The Mini-Samurai classes are tailored to build build coordination, confidence, self discipline and focus whilst making classes fun for children from ages 5 through 12. In addition to the standard children’s jujutsu belts which gradually build the foundation self defence skills of the students, the Mini-Samurai class provides short term skill objectives which the children can achieve. Once the particular skills have been demonstrated in the class the children will be rewarded with a badge which can be worn with pride on their uniform.
