Thanks Prizewriter for the info. I got this reply today.

Quote:

6 years old can work, especially if hes good at listening. My daughter is 5, turning 6 in a few weeks and she enjoys it. Id ask that you either join us on the Mat (Fun for you, too) OR stay and watch. Children often need help, and Im there to teach the class. When I help, I mean tying their belt and / or going to the bathroom. Heres some info:



We are working out at the Jones Family Center . Class is a mix of beginners and people who gave up some years ago. We have both Juniors and Seniors.



Class is Wednesday from 6 to 8 and Saturday from 11 to 1.



Cost: FREE. You do need to join the USJA ($40 per person or family membership). Everyone must have a Gi (uniform). I can get you wholesale prices ($40 to $80 or more, depending on quality). Finally, you need to sign up with the Jones Center , which is free. I can review gi options if you like. Why don't you stop by tomorrow to see what it's like. Bring workout cloths if you don't have an old Gi.



FYI, here's text I sent Judoka a few weeks ago on how to register:



When: Classes begin Sept 5. They will be Wednesday 6 to 8 and Saturday 11 to 1. You do not have to be at both classes, though you will learn quicker if you are.



Where: The Jones Center for Families, 922 East Emma Ave. Springdale , AR 72765



Cost: FREE. You need to be a member of the USJA and own a Gi (uniform). I can help you with both. Cost for Membership is $25 for a year if you do it quickly! After that it goes up to $40. Price for a gi is around $40.



Who: Everyone. Beginners, Advanced, Juniors, Seniors, Masters.



Register with the Jones Center : Call (479) 756-8090 Ex 212. Ask to register for Judo.



USJA Membership: Please register ASAP. You can do this on line at http://usja-judo.org/. Please e-mail me once you have. If you have any problems or need help, please contact me.






Sounds really good! I'll check it out tomorrow.

Go for it.

But don't forget to sometimes build up a little "father-son" relationship when it comes to MA.

Teach him a bit of krotty when you got some time

Can't wait 'till I get my own kid. We'll be roudhouse kicking day in day out. BKK lamp-posts beware! Taison shall be there!

After two classes I am enjoying myself immensely. We went directly into the "good stuff".

Plenty of ne waza at the end of each class too.

My sensei thinks I use to wrestle,lol.

No just tell him its Bunkai. I am glad you like it and if you son likes it that's great too. And you aren't just learning break falling big plus in my book.

LOL, it's not bunkai. It's the groundfighting that we have integrated into our goju that helps. He saw the shrimping and using my legs to lock and escape. I did apply a keylock to one guy briefly, but I let it go. I don't think I'm supposed to be doing that yet.

Probably a good idea. Some ppl let their ego's get in the way of training. I did that once to an instructor and got control on the ground. It affected his ego so much that I got kicked out of the school. :-O

Yeah the Bunkai thing was a joke. Is it a kids and adult class together or separate?
