Searching for a new physical activity for your child?
Want to promote discipline and focus while still having fun?
If so, you might be interested in kids judo! Martial arts are a wonderful way for your child to build strength and focus. At JMAC, we emphasize safe and systematic learning that is suited to any skill level!
Here are a couple beginner throws your child might learn:
- O-uchi-gari – Move your right leg in between your partner’s legs and come from behind their left leg at the knee. Then, sweep their leg and push them down.
- Deashi-barai – A sideways throw where you sweep your opponent’s feet off the ground. Start by sweeping the opponents left leg with your right foot then twist their torso slightly. They will fall sideways on the ground in front of you.
