Suigetsukan youth classes offer a safe environment for girls and boys to learn our form of Jujutsu. Through a blend of games, drills and traditional forms training, students get to have fun while gaining all the well-known benefits of an early martial arts training such as improved self-esteem, confidence, focus and healthier bodies.
Our Jujutsu is derived from the grappling arts of the Samurai—techniques taught to defend themselves were they to lose their weapons on a battlefield. These techniques have evolved to a modern-day system that continues to pay homage to the character and values of the Samurai warriors, while remaining applicable to the physical and mental challenges young people face today.
We believe that martial arts can be beneficial to all kids, and work with each child’s unique gifts to help them realize their potential. There is a lot of hype in the commercial world of martial arts for children; as a non-profit dojo, Suigetsukan makes a point of keeping our focus on working with the kids to get the most out of their experience.
Sensei Gina Rossi has been studying martial arts for 20 years, and is a fourth degree black belt in Danzan Ryu Jujitsu and a third degree black belt in Aikido. She also teaches after school youth classes at Urban Promise Academy in Oakland and adult Jujitsu, Aikido and Battodo classes at Suigetsukan Dojo.
