One of the main areas of difference between Goshin’s program and most Tae kwon do and other karate curriculums is that Goshin’s karate programs incorporate elements of judo standup throws/take downs and grappling mat work/wrestling into our Martial Arts program. Here’s why: in the movies and on TV, the good guy kicks the bad guy in the head and the bad guy falls down. In real life, most fights end up on the ground. Although we teach that you should ALWAYS avoid a fight if at all possible, we want you or your child to be prepared if an assailant or bully gets you on the ground.
Goshin Karate’s Judo classes are a unique, fun workout for all ages groups (8 years old and up), both sexes, and most disabled persons to participate together in a learning and practicing the sport. Judo is an inexpensive, year-round activity that appeals to people from all walks of life.
Goshin Karate & Judo Academy’s Japanese Jiu Jitsu classes promote the idea that a smaller, weaker person can successful defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper ground fighting technique.
There is no better self defense system than Jiu Jitsu. The techniques of Japanese Jiu Jitsu have been developed so that almost anyone can do them, no matter their age or athletic ability. Our students train in a safe environment with our dedicated instructors that will help you achieve whatever goal you set for yourself.
