The Fun and Excitement of Kids Judo in Ann Arbor

Are you looking for a way for your child to get out of the house, away from screens, interacting with other kids and having a great time?

The Kids Judo in Ann Arbor program at JMAC may be exactly what you’re looking for.

Numerous studies have shown how important it is for children to get out and play. Engaging in physical activities is critical for brain and body development. Unfortunately, kids just aren’t getting enough opportunities for healthy play these days. That’s where martial arts training like Judo can be a big game changer for your child!

Benefits from our Kids Judo Ann Arbor Program include:

Physical Fitness

You’re a parent. You know kids have a lot of energy to burn. Judo offers a structured and safe environment where your child will be able to move, sweat, have fun and burn off that extra energy! When you teach kids to safely fall, throw, and roll around, they have so much fun they often forget they’re actually getting exercise!


It can be tough for some kids to try new things and interact with new people. Our instructors help put that to rest. We know that no two kids are alike, so there isn’t a “one size fits all” approach to our Kids Judo program. We balance being part of the group with individualized attention.

Improved Performance at School

Judo helps you learn focus and discipline and prepares your mind to absorb new information quickly. When a child participates in our Kids Judo program, they absorb these skills and use them at school. There is a lot of fun and hard work in Judo, so your child will learn the value of a “work hard then play hard” mentality.

Which Class is Right for Your Child?

The best thing you can do is come watch a Kids Judo class at JMAC with your child. You’ll see how our instructors interact with the students. If this is something you and your child are excited about, we offer two free intro lessons. Your child will get the first-hand experience to see how well they enjoy it.
