The Junior Tai-Jutsu program introduces children to the art of Ten-Chi-Wa Tai-Jutsu. Juniors develop and enhance:

  • Self-defense
  • Responsibility
  • Confidence
  • Awareness

  • Discipline
  •  Patience & perseverance
  • Coordination
  •  Problem solving skills
  •  Respect
  • Accountability

The Junior Tai-Jutsu Program introduces children to the art of Ten-Chi-Wa Tai-Jutsu, a traditional Japanese martial art founded in the ways of the Samurai and Ninja.  Tai-Jutsu is an original mixed martial art known as the “Grand Mother Art” of Karate, Judo and Aikido. The Art is based on natural body movement, emphasizing balance and awareness. Students learn how to defend themselves through efficient and effective movement, blocking, striking, rolling, falling, and body manipulation through unbalancing.  

Junior Tai-Jutsu classes combine students that range from beginner to experienced.  Classes train as a group, and then in pairs as they build upon the material.  Students practice cooperation, communication, and respect for others through frequent partner work.  To keep their partners and themselves safe, students train in a slow controlled manner. Students learn self-defense techniques to protect themselves in various situations. 

As each student progresses, they set individual goals, monitor their progress, and maintain the focus and perseverance necessary to achieve a Black Belt. Along the way each student will enjoy a sense of achievement through their physical and mental improvement. It is our mission to help each student grow and succeed in their goals inside and outside of the Dojo.  

At Studio City Martial Arts, we believe in the preservation of life.  We do not spar or hold competition tournaments. Unnecessary contact is prohibited, and we do not believe in the glorification of fighting. At our Dojo, we do not train for trophies, but rather to protect ourselves and develop a strong sense of self.
