Total Ryu Youth Samurai Martial Arts, Karate and Jujitsu for ages 8 to 12.

Building Great Children

As with all of our youth martial arts programs the curriculum consists of traditional Japanese jujitsu and traditional karate combined in an effective and powerful way.  Kids love it and are excited to learn it.  The jujitsu portion has dozens of leg sweeps, throwing techniques and self-defense applications.  Striking, kicking, blocking, striking combinations and movement make up the karate portion of the curriculum.  Kids in this age group will also be introduced to the 3 levels of learning.  The three levels of learning are slow and stationary practice, moderate resistance and movement, applied active resistance and movement.

The Focus for Samurai Martial Arts

The focus for the Samurai Martial Arts Program, ages 8 to 12 is not only teaching high-quality jujitsu and karate while helping the student increase in confidence, balance, athleticism, agility, and character.  We also desire to help these students understand the basic principles of safety and how to apply them in their lives.  Anti-bullying, good manners, dedication, helping others are also a focus.

This Age Group is Awesome

They learn fast, understand more than you think and have a great time practicing and improving.  The Samurai Martial Arts Program is for ages 8 to 12.  The required techniques are designed just for this age groups capability and understanding.  It consists of striking combinations and movement (traditional Karate) and self-defense escapes and techniques (traditional jujitsu).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is Martial Arts for You?2019-06-24T14:28:52+00:00

I think so, everyone can benefit from either jiujitsu or karate training or even both.  The problem for most adults is when they think of martial arts training they think of MMA type training or what is showing on TV, they may also think of kids classes and what they have experienced as a child or see their kids do.  They associate these pictures with martial arts training for themselves as adults.  At Total Ryu we are not like that at all, our adult classes are different from our kids’ classes, and we are not a sport or an MMA school.

You should also understand that Real fighting is not just done on the ground.

Many people will want you to believe that the ground is where you want to go.  NO NO NO, never if you can help it.  The real world is full of concrete, asphalt, rocks, obstacles, etc.  Not to mention that the most dangerous fights have more than one attacker.  If you go to the ground, the other guy or guys are going to be doing things to you that you don’t want them to.  However, you do need to know what to do on the ground, but in a method that gets you on your feet while taking out the bad guy as quickly as possible.  That method of thought is precisely our philosophy on ground fighting at Total Ryu.

What is Training at Total Ryu Martial Arts LIKE?2019-06-24T14:32:32+00:00

Training at Total Ryu is incredible.  We teach and train in a relaxed fun and informative environment.  You will learn at your own pace, and the black belt team and I will do everything that we can to help you learn the techniques and principles and advance to higher levels of understanding and capability.  During class, you will get a workout, but it will feel much different than a traditional workout because you will be learning and practicing useful information and participating in functional fitness.

The people that come to Total Ryu are top notch, fantastic people whom I consider to be part of my extended family and close personal friends.  We all care about each other and each others success, not only in the dojo but in life.  We have helped each other out in many ways outside of the dojo.   We have also helped people find success in areas of their life that they wanted to improve.  We care about each other, come in and try a class and see what we are all about.  Why not, it’s free to try.  I know you will like it.

Safe Environment

Will you get injured, probably not, while I can’t guarantee it, we do our best to keep everyone safe.   We teach everyone how to do the techniques and applications safely.  Learning safety in practicing martial arts is part of everyone’s progression.  Our desire is for everyone that comes into the dojo to have a fun, positive learning experience and that means we will do our best to keep all of our students free from injury.

I Don’t Know Anything, Will I Feel Out of Place?2019-06-24T14:34:02+00:00

You have to remember that no one starts training in Total Ryu Martial arts or any jujitsu or karate system as an expert.  Everyone starts as a beginner, what sets us apart is that we want you to succeed, so you have lots of friends who want to help you achieve and learn.  It is quite amazing.  As a beginner, we start you off easy.  You will learn the basics and gradually as you improve, learn more advanced techniques.  All the time being tutored by black belts and more advanced students.  We want you to succeed so we will do what is needed to help you achieve that goal.
