Many say that judo is the best martial art for kids
Judo is at its most effective when one is being attached or assaulted. With its emphasis on leverage, judo teaches a smaller person how to overcome a larger person using minimal force by using an attacker’s strength against them.
As Budokai judo instructor Ray Litvak says, “A well trained judoka (judo practitioner) is not in the habit of starting a fight. At Budokai, we teach students how to avoid physical confrontations. But when presented with no other alternative, a well-trained judoka will finish a fight.”
Founded by Sensei’s Rick Koglin and Ray Litvak, (Certified Judo black belts and instructors), the goal of the club is to imbue its students with the character, confidence and courage that practicing judo over time instills in its students.
Judo is practiced by children (boys and girls) men and women world-wide and the club welcomes all, from beginner to advanced judoka.
The club is located in the heart of North York at 1110-5 Finch Ave. West, North York, Ontario M3J 2T2 and is located in the North York Aikido Club/Aikido Hokuryukai. The club will officially open its doors on Sunday August, 19, 2012. For more information, or to pre-register, please contact Rick Koglin at (416) 712-6751 or e-mail us today.
