Program Details

Youth will learn how to improve their balance, fall properly (breakfalls), develop judo throws and learn basic grappling through games, activities, and drills. Kids Judo emphasizes a recreational learning environment for youth, but one that will help improve the youth's co-ordination, strength, conditioning, and overall athletic skills. The philosophy of judo emphasizes the need to 'take care of one's partner' and this is an integral part of our judo program. 'Mutual benefit' and 'respect for each other' form the philisophical foundation of this sport. These qualities make judo not only a good sport, but also a great educational training for life.

* Tuesday classes are tailored for recreational and experienced participants (yellow belt and experienced levels). Open to all skill levels.

* Thursday classes are tailored to younger, beginner partcipants (below yellow belt level). Children under 6 years of age are encouraged to have parental guidance while on the mats.

**Please note: for SFU Police Judo Junior programming there is an additional $50 annual membership fee for the Law Enforcement Training Association (LETA).
