Police Judo Jrs.

Odd Squad Police Judo Juniors is a youth judo program designed to help develop physical literacy skills, co-ordination, fitness and resiliency skills. This program allows participants to grade from beginner to black belt through an approved grading syllabus, provides youth opportunities for ongoing learning including clinics and training courses (competitions for those who may be interested), and provides a good foundation for youth interested in moving on as they grow to the Law Enforcement Training Association Police Judo programs.

Students will learn the philosophy and principles of Judo including the most important principle of Police Judo which is to "take care of one's partner". There is no punching, striking or kicking in this program as it is focused on the traditional judo techniques of throws, grappling, and groundwork. Students will develop good self-defense skills in this program. Odd Squad Police Judo Juniors is a sanctioned Judo BC/Sport BC youth program. All training for this program takes place on the custom-built sprung floor at our Odd Squad headquarters.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do I Need To Wear To Classes?

If it's your first time, you can wear any athletic clothing! For members, you can purchase your judo gis through us! Contact us and we will help you with sizing and get your order in right away.

Already have a gi? Feel free to wear it! Please be aware that uniforms for martial arts such as Taekwondo and Karate are much thinner than judo gis, and will rip easily in practice due to the nature of the sport.
 
How Do The Belts Work?
Judo has 6 kyu (color-belt) ranks: white, yellow, orange, green, blue, and brown. The children's program additionally includes half-belts: white, white-yellow, yellow, yellow-orange, orange, orange-green, green, green-blue, blue, blue-brown, and brown. After brown comes black belt. The minimum age for a black belt in Canada is 16 years-old. Police Judo's grading is attendance based. 
 
What Is The Youngest Age Group You Offer Classes For?
U8 is the youngest age group that we offer training for. U8 encompasses 5 - 7 year olds.

Is Judo For All Body Types?
Judo focuses on maximum efficiency with minimum effort, which means that there are techniques for EVERYBODY. While traditional judoka compete in weight classes, open weight competitions are offered and we encourage training with different body types!
 
Is Judo Safe?
Judo places an emphasis on safe practice and a significant portion of each class is focused on falling safely. Students do not progress to active sparring until they are competant in safe practice, and begin training with more experienced students and instructors. As a result, judo is a very safe contact sport for children and adults.
 
Is There Training On A Stat Holiday?
There will be no training on a stat holiday. An e-mail confirmation will be sent out to registered students.
 
What Is Judo BC? Do I Have To Become A Member?
Judo BC is the organizing body for Judo in British Columbia. All judo students in BC must be registered with Judo BC.
