“We are at our best when helping others…” The philosophical emphasis for Juniors is humility, control of power, speed control and tension and relaxation. Students continue to develop confidence through goal setting and achievement. Self-discipline creates the opportunity for partner work with basic self-defense against a grab and free sparring.
