Besides the obvious self-defense skills martial arts teach, the most important reason to invest in a martial arts program is that an awesome program like ours at Judo America San Diego can cure many of issues that plague today’s “entitlement” and “entertainment” generation. This is what your investment in Judo gets you:
• You pay so your child can be on the mat instead of in front of a screen.
• You pay so your child doesn’t become a victim of fear, bullies, apathy, sloppy work ethics, poor fitness, and health.
• You pay for those days when your child comes home from school, too “tired” to go to practice, but goes anyway.
• You pay so your child perseveres in the face of disappointment: falling seven times and getting up eight times.
• You pay so your child climbs through, around, and over obstacles to accomplish goals.
• You pay so your child learns there are no “safe spaces” in the real world.
• You pay so your child learns it takes hours and hours of hard work and practice to become successful, and that success doesn’t come overnight.
• You pay so your child becomes self-reliant, but also becomes a good teammate.
• You pay so your child develops lifelong core values and leadership qualities.

Complex physical activities such as martial arts have proven to strengthen the brain’s neural networks, helping kids improve their focus and self-control. This can be especially beneficial for kids with ADD/ADHD.
The traditional nature of martial arts teaches kids respect in their classes, whether they are taking a bow or waiting patiently for the next set of instructions. This sense of respect also helps kids improve their grades, while improving their listening skills at home and in school.
Judo America San Diego accepts students from approximately age four and up. The director of coaching will decide whether a child is old enough to start.
New students may join at any time of the month since we don’t have sessions that start at a specific time. We operate on a month-to-month basis. We have no contracts or registration fees.

Children are required to compete but adults are not. For children, competition is a huge part of a child’s character development, which is why we require children to compete. It’s also a requirement for rank promotion. In general, students who compete advance more quickly than students who don’t compete.
Yes and no. Girls and boys will train together and compete against each other within the confines of our class but are usually not allowed to compete against boys in sanctioned tournaments. However, in many informal events, girls with parent or coach approval may compete against boys.
