    About Japanese Goshinkan Ju Jitsu

    Originally the hand-to-hand combat art of the Samurai, Japanese Jujitsu is taught to Police and Military personnel world-wide as one of the most effective means of controlling violent subjects.

    Arguably the most devastating and effective system of self-defense, ju jitsu is often taught to law enforcement personnel and personal security professionals. You will never see a fancy, high-flying kick or intricate and flashy sequence of moves taught in our schools, instead you will learn immediately usable and effective self-defense techniques and tactics design for one purpose — to keep you, your family and possessions safe.

    Skills learned in this program: Stances, Breakfalls, Blocks, Hand Techniques, Kicking, Takedowns, After Throws, Hold Downs, Follow-Throughs, Hold Escapes, Escort and Removals, Weapons Disarming, Pressure Point Control, Joint Locking, Grappling and Restraints.

    Not being in a confrontation is ideal, so learning how to avoid them whenever possible is our first consideration and strategy. However, physical confrontations do happen and from the first class you are learning how to mitigate your risk, as well as position yourself to remove yourself from the situation safely. Should you find yourself in a physical confrontation you will be armed with proven and effective self-defense techniques and tactics to help you stop the attack and prevent further attack.

  • Shogun Black Stripe™

    About the Program

    Our Junior Shogun™ Black Stripe Program is a martial arts program for boys and girls ages 8 – 13, and is based on research and education with the combination of personal safety skills and ju jitsu techniques.

    This program is based on a traditional stripe color belt system and when the student reaches the last level in the Junior Shogun program they are placed in the Junior Shogun™ Black Stripe Program. The program is very similar to the teens and adults ju jitsu programs however it still utilizes the striping system.

    The Junior Shogun™ Black Stripe Program consists of the following:

    • Advanced Stances Break-falls
    • Advanced Blocks
    • Advanced Hand Techniques
    • Advanced Kicking Techniques
    • Advanced Take-downs
    • Advanced After Throws
    • Advanced Hold Downs
    • Advanced Hold Escapes
    • Self-Defense

    Notes for parents:

    At Goshinkan Ju Jitsu, we recognize that young children are developing the physical and mental skills that will serve them for the rest of their lives. We try to facilitate this development through the use of gross motor skills and curriculum that develop coordination and focus. Your child will be challenged to perform new techniques and learn about ju jitsu and themselves.

    Our Martial Arts program is not for sport and it is not a drill camp. We are focused on self-defense and safety. Along with our self-defense techniques, we teach awareness and personal safety. Our environment is friendly and fun however, children are expected to respect their teachers and peers, focus on techniques and lessons being taught and review their safety skills at home.

    As the parent of a Junior Shogun, we ask that you support your child as he or she develops new skills and learns new concepts.

  • Junior Leader™ Program

    About the Program

    Our Junior Leader™ Program is a program for boys and girls ages 8 – 13, students are hand picked by black belt instructors to participate in the junior leader program.

    This program helps build leadership and strong ju jitsu skills beyond the regular Ju Jitsu Programs. The Junior Leader™ is lent a blue Ju Jitsu Gi embroidered with a Junior Leader logo. The student does not own this Gi as it belongs to the Alberta Ju Jitsu Association. Junior Leaders will wear the blue Gi only when helping with Mini Bushi™ Program and Little Samurai™ Program. After these classes they are to change into their traditional white top, they are allowed to keep the blue pants in during their regular class.

    The Junior Leader is expected to assist the Mini Bushi™ and Little Samurai™ students with the following:

    • Dojo Tour
    • Greeting Mini Bushi™ and Little Samurai™
    • Line up and bow in
    • Helping put on and tie their belts
    • Assisting with holding of pads
    • Assisting with keeping the dojo clean

    Notes for parents:

    At Goshinkan Ju Jitsu, we recognize that some young children are developing leadership skills that will serve them for the rest of their lives. We will invite kids to attend our Junior Leader™ class once monthly for 15 minutes. This class is to assist students who are in the Junior Leader™ Program or assess other kids that might be good candidates for the Junior Leader™ Program.

    This program is free and there is not cost for the blue Gi, we only ask that the students keep the Gi clean.

  • Mini Bushi™

    About

    Our Mini Bushi™ Program is not just a martial arts program for boys and girls ages 3 – 5, it is a step-by-step danger awareness program. Shihan Lintott started and developed the children’s programs in 2004, and it has expanded throughout Alberta, into B.C. and Saskatchewan.

    What will my child learn?

    Your child will be learning one level every one to two Semesters (11 weeks), both in the dojo and at home. The skills taught in the dojo will be initialed by the instructor teaching your child when they are first taught the skill. A second initial will be given by one of our instructors when your child is able to perform the skill with little or no prompting.

    Skills to be learned at home are indicated with a spot for you to initial. These are skills that cannot be taught in the dojo or require additional parental involvement. When an instructor sees that you have initialed a skill, they will ask your child to explain it back to them from time to time, at which point they will add their initials as well.

    Martial arts for life will make your child more focused. They will have increased concentration through traditional ranking system of earning belts and stripes, they will learn they have the ability of setting and meeting achievable goals. These goals will follow them through life and improve their academics at school.

    Children will learn Dojo Skills and Drills with our all new obstacle course. The obstacle course will improve confidence, agility and martial arts skills.

    At the beginning and end of each class there is quiet time before the children bow in and out of class much like the traditional way of bowing in Japanese Ju-Jitsu.

    Will my child get to have fun?

    All of kids programs will include Dojo Games. Some of the games are Ju Jitsu Dodge Ball; Mini Bushi Run and Freeze Shadow Boxing.

    What happens when the end of each level?

    At the end of each level your child will be promoted to the next level. Each level has 5 stripes. Once all five stripes are earned they will then move onto the next level after all the skills are signed off. The last few classes are spent reviewing these skills under the observation of a Black Belt instructor, and end with a celebration and presentation of their stripes and certificates. There are thirty (30) stripes in the Mini Bushi™ program; Yellow (5); Gold (5); Orange (5); Green (5); Blue (5) and Red (5). The entire program takes 1 1/2 to 2 years to complete depending how well the children learn and how many classes they attend. After this program they join the Little Samurai™ Program.

    For 12 to 15 Year Olds

    About

    The Teen Program is a bridge between our Junior Shogun and Adult Program. Typically young students migrate to “adult” classes too early as they are still quite small in comparison, but are ready to learn the full system of Japanese Jujitsu.

    Arguably the most devastating and effective system of self-defense, ju jitsu is often taught to law enforcement personnel and personal security professionals. You will never see a fancy, high-flying kick or intricate and flashy sequence of moves taught in our schools, instead you will learn immediately usable and effective self-defense techniques and tactics design for one purpose — to keep you, your family and possessions safe.

Should you find yourself in a physical confrontation you will be armed with proven and effective self-defense techniques and tactics to help you stop the attack and prevent further attack.

    For girls and boys aged 12 to 15 this program is based on a traditional color belt system (White, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Purple and Brown). Mudansha Gradings (colour belt gradings) at this age happen every six months.
