Kids Judo


Shimeru offers a traditional Kodokan judo class, taught with Japanese terms and adhering to the judo ranking system. Classes focus on strong fundamentals, with instruction on the judo essentials—gripping, tach-iwaza (standing techniques), and newaza (ground techniques) among other things. We train our students to have a well-rounded grappling education by offering kids classes in both judo and jiu jitsu, the opportunity to earn rank in each, and memberships that are both for unlimited attendance and inclusive of all classes.
