About the Junior Program

The junior program operates from the beginning of September to the end of April, with prospective members joining at any time.

Grading examinations are held on a regular basis, and advancement is based on the individual's commitment to judo.

For Exercise

There's no better way to get kids off the couch than a fun, engaging activity like judo.

As well as movement, participants will learn to work with others their own age to learn the art of judo.

For Competitors

Our competitive members have very good success at provincial, national, and international tournaments, returning with a fair number of medals and trophies.

If your child wants to go far, we have the skills to make it happen.

For Fun

With a group atmosphere and plenty of games that teach movement and balance, while also teaching the art of judo, the junior class is a fun and engaging activity for your child.
