Jujitsu Buddies

thru: Strike Back Martial Arts

Offers an adaptive Jujitsu program designed for children who have special needs or may benefit from more individualized and self-paced instruction.  Sessions are 9 classes and are available in the fall, winter, spring and summer.  Some of the benefits children will experience from participation in this program are as follows:
  • Focus: Relaxation breathing techniques, practice of multiple step directions (chaining) to improve auditory processing skills.
  • Awareness: Personal space training and activities, movement skills (for group settings)
  • Social Skills: Understanding social cues (taking turns, waiting in line at attention), support and guidance with verbal and non-verbal communication.
  • Strength:  Individual and group exercise, completing curriculum tasks (mitt holding, striking, stance work), promotion of positive “never give up attitude”
  • Coordination: Gross and fine motor skills (striking, movement drills, core specific exercises)
  • Confidence: Promotion of the concept “let’s try something new”, building skills such as “making eye contact” and “formal introductions”
  • Safety: Good touch/ Bad touch discussion; presentations from uniformed officers (fire, police), and  knowledge and repetition of basic skills (Name, Address, phone, parents names)
  • Teamwork: Large and small group activities; learning each role in a given drill and understanding the importance of each task.

Eligibility: Age 5 or older.

Application Process: Strongly suggest a short meet and greet with the parents and student prior to the beginning of the session but it is not mandatory.

Required Documentation: Registration form and student information forms are found on our website.

Fees: $180 / 9 class session. Eligible for self-directed (family cash reimbursement).
