CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Junior Belt Classes

These classes are for children ages 5 up to 8 years old (sometimes 9 if they need a bit more time to mature). The curriculum is drawn from our core kihon and teachings of Tora Jutsu. Teachers of this age group understand kids! They do a lot of activity based training. The goal with younger students is to develop basic skills of balance, coordination, focus, self control, all while having a lot of fun. Students in this age group will have obi (belts) that have a white stripe going through the belt indicating they are part of our junior program. They can and will test for belt advancement. Once they become old enough and experienced enough to move into the regular, or solid, belt system (kyu levels) they will test INTO a solid belt color appropriate to their ability and experience level. Students (ages 15 and up) and adults in the school are welcome to assist and participate with our junior belt students.

Fundamentals Classes

The fundamentals classes are the core and base of Tora Jutsu training. These classes are for students ages 9 up to 99! Many families choose to train in these classes together. We encourage that. Fundamentals classes are for white belts up through orange belts. Balance, technique, focus, speed and strength (BTFSS) will all be covered regularly in these classes. Fundamental stances, movements, strikes, defenses, kicks, throws, are also regularly taught and practiced in these classes. These classes teach the foundational principles, demeanor, and discipline of the martial arts journey.

Intermediate Classes

As students progress in Tora Jutsu they will have the opportunity to train at a higher level of intensity and difficulty. Once purple belt is achieved students will train in the intermediate class. Here we deepen the level of precision in training as well as push students to become stronger, faster, and more disciplined. These classes dig deeper into our traditional and practical components of Tora Jutsu. Elements, animal forms, styles, combat training, and deeper stories and teachings are explored. At this level students will be able to apply to and Elemental Group for continued training under a specific blackbelt that specializes in that element. Water, earth, fire, air, and steel elements are the options, and this training is deep, rewarding, and fun.

Advanced Classes

Brown belts, black belts, and red belts all have the opportunity to deepen their training and to hone and advance their skills and high level belts and training in these classes. These classes are an absolute blast. They push student towards becoming a professional martial artist. They learn how to teach, they further hone their strength, their skills, and dive deep into powerful teachings from the martial way of life. Blackbelts can train and advance beyond Shodan (first degree black) with these classes: all the way through 5th degree blackbelt, which is a multi yeared, long term journey of striving for martial arts progression. All areas of combat are trained in as well. These classes are the culmination of years of training and are the epitome of martial arts.
