About This Activity

Description

Chibi (little) Judo helps children grow in wonderful ways. As we jump, run, and roll we develop balance, coordination and confidence.
And we have fun! We start out learning our names in Japanese then do movement exercises, tumbling, and some simple judo techniques that teach us to fall safely. We place a strong emphasis on culture so everyone plays games, sing songs and speaks the language of Japan. We learn to "nete" (lie down) and to "tonde" (leap) like an "raion" (lion).
In our positive learning environment we bow politely to Sensei and to one another. At Hanabi respect comes as naturally as smiling.
