About Our Program:
Suigetsukan youth classes offer a safe environment 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.
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 Rehal began training martial arts at Suigetsukan in 1992. She has been an instructor at Suigetsukan since 2003. She is a sixth degree black belt in Danzan Ryu Jujutsu, a fourth degree black belt in Toyama Ryu Battodo and a fourth degree black belt in Aikido. Gina taught martial arts and self-defense classes to youth at two Oakland Public Schools. She also teaches self-defense workshops for a variety of community organizations and adult Jujutsu, Aikido and Battodo classes at Suigetsukan Dojo.
