We are excited to announce we have added a kids’ Judo Fort Lauderdale class on Monday and Wednesday nights, starting at 5:00pm. Judo is going to be held half hour before our regular kids Jiu-Jitsu class and will last for half an hour. Cross-training in Judo and Jiu-Jitsu helps máster a very important skill set which will help your child be more successful during competitions; takedowns.
For those who are not familiar with Jiu-Jitsu, in simple terms, it involves a lot grappling. Judo on the other hand involves grappling too but adds more techniques that show you how to lift and throw your opponents onto their backs from a standing position. Also known as takedowns. Judo does not involve any kicking, punching, or striking but still improves physical fitness in many ways. It helps you with your flexibility, agility, speed, power, endurance and more. Not only do we want to focus on takedowns but helping the kids’ learn how to fall as well.
There are many benefits that come with adding Judo techniques to your Jiu-Jitsu training. We know having your little champ practice and focus on their takedowns is going to help them become much more successful at tournaments. All Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu matches begin with both opponents on their feet. This is why we want to further emphasize the importance of practicing takedowns and throws to come out victorious in future fights. We want your child to have the upper-hand when it comes to taking down the other opponent first. This is only accomplished through practice and consistency!
Máster Junior Fernandes is going to have Coach Daniel Jasper, Who is a Black belt in Judo, here at our school downtown to assist with teaching the new Judo Fort Lauderdale kids’ class. We decided to add this class to our curriculum due to the increased amount of students we have participating in tournaments! Here at American Top team Fort Lauderdale, our goal is to improve our students every time they set foot through that door. With the right tools and mindset, there is no limit to what your child can accomplish!
Our new class is open to all our students! If you have not gotten the chance to yet stop by our school and try out our new kid’s Judo Fort Lauderdale class! We are looking forward to having you here!
