Odd Squad Police Judo Juniors

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.

All students require insurance under Judo BC prior to stepping on the training floor. Click here to get your annual insurance.
