Total Ryu Youth Martial Arts, Ages 5 to12

Building Great Children

The Total Ryu Martial Arts method is one that is rare and very effective. In our youth martial arts program the students learn the basics of karate and jujitsu.  These are usually taught in a self-defense application and in disguised repetition.  Our youth martial arts curriculum consists of basic traditional jujitsu techniques, youth appropriate self-defense applications, and basic karate striking, blocking and movement.

The Focus for Youth Martial Arts Training

Balance, coordination, confidence and agility are just a few of the benefits of Total Ryu Traditional Martial Arts for ages 5 to 12. All of these, plus self-discipline, self-esteem, and of course self-defense are central in our training method.  Asymmetrical learning is a fundamental aspect in martial arts, and helps develop the brain in a way that is very difficult to do with other popular physical activities and sports. This method of learning helps improve coordination, agility, timing, and balance. Other common benefits to training in traditional martial arts are: an increase in physical strength, physical fitness, self-mastery, and teamwork.

When you add in the fact that it is functional fitness and the aspect of self- defense, you get the best and most effective health and fitness routine around.
