Atemi Jutsu stresses using punches and kicks effectively as a manner of handling attackers. By using Taisabaki, body positioning, an attack is neutralized and the attacker is put into a bad position, so that the counter-strike lands with precision and power. Simple sweeps and throws are taught to bring down opponents quickly and effectively.
Through the practice of forms, techniques, and sparring, our youth class is not only great for self defense, but develops healthy, physically active kids.
Classes are offered to kids ages 7 through 17.
