Children's Jujitsu


Specially Designed for Boys and Girls (ages 6 to 12)

We recognize the benefits the martial arts offers children and we have developed a Jujitsu self defense class in Long Beach specifically designed for boys and girls using Danzan Ryu Jujitsu. In the course of learning self defense techniques, kids gain the benefit of patience, exercise, self control, and discipline. Some of the many benefits children receive include self defense, enhanced concentration in school, improved coordination, enhanced self esteem, and character development. Areas stressed include avoiding confrontations, always striving to improve, learning the discipline to continue and not give up, how to focus, and respect for others. A belt ranking system is used to distinguish proficiency and seniority.

Personal Attention

Children progress at their own rate given personalized instruction based on their individual strengths and weaknesses. We have touched thousands of lives, from the white belt who started this month to children who have grown and are now in our adult martial arts classes. Children practice techniques with a partner and a black belt instructor who guides and assists them though the process of learning self defense. We group children by rank so they can focus on Jujitsu self defense techniques that are appropriate for their skill level. Our Children's Jujitsu class is specifically designed for boys and girls ages 6 to 12. Sorry, we do not accept students younger than 6 years of age.


Founded in 1979, our Lakewood Budo Kai martial arts school has offered Jujitsu, Karate, and Women's Self Defense classes in the Long Beach area for over 30 years. Our school is lead by black belts who have many decades of martial arts training and experience.
