The summer Jiu-Jitsu program, which is approved by the World Kobudo Federation and the Greater
Toronto Jiu-Jitsu Centre, will allow students to progress through the traditional Japanese grading system.
New students to the program will receive a traditional uniform (gi) and a white belt and could progress
through various levels of white belt and on to the coloured belt levels. Students who have experience
in Jiu-Jitsu will be assessed and instructed at the appropriate level.
With an emphasis on Awareness, Fitness, Fun and Respect, students will learn how to defend themselves
in almost any situation. Break falling, throwing, grappling, striking and games promoting awareness,
will all be included in the curriculum. Students will receive official certification at the completion of
each belt level.
The Martial Arts program will be run out of the dojo at Hunter’s Point and children will be transported
to and from the dojo by camp bus.
