Our Happy Students & Parents
We are thrilled to be a member of the Contra Costa Seibukan Jujutsu family. This is a very impressive dojo, the teaching style is unique, the instructors teach by example, with extreme patience, and hands on training. Not only are our boys learning this impressive art, they are becoming great young men with integrity, confidence and learning healthy, active life choices.
Our 7 year old has learned so much in the Children’s Jujutsu Class! He’s learned various self defense techniques and he’s become more confident and mature. More importantly, he has fun at every class and looks forward to the class every week. We highly recommend Contra Costa Budokan.
There are some people that just love what they do and it shows through in their work and Sensei Jon is one of those people. He is patient, kind, a great instructor and very personable. I have never been so impressed by a martial arts instructor as I was with Sensei Jon.I have to impress how lucky we are to be able to study the art of the Samurai Sword here in Concord.
I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled we are to have found Contra Costa Budokan Martial Arts Academy. Shihan Jon is the best that you can get for a Sensei.The dojo is a non-competitive atmosphere that encourages empowerment, responsibility and mindfulness. There is a real community feel there and I am grateful to have found Shihan Jon after (literally) years of searching for a good dojo for my child!
The dojo has taught my son confidence and leadership. ALL of the instructors there are fully committed to helping their students achieve their goals. It’s this type of culture and atmosphere that makes my son want to push himself to be the very best.
All techniques that I have learned so far are very practical for self defense application. I really enjoy going and feel refreshed every time I leave. The way Renshi Rodriguez instructs is very descriptive because he breaks down the techniques and answers all question students have. His techniques are very graceful and seem effortless.
So I recently enrolled my 9 year old son in the kids classes. I’ve been coming to the adult classes for 18 months.
I wish my parents brought me here. They teach kids like their adults and they rise to the challenge. The instructor gives motivational talks in class and gets the kids involved. All t he higher belts help the lower belts and i really think this is brilliant, it reinforces what they know and teaches patience.
Contra Costa Budokan is a place filled with wonderful, positive opportunities for children to learn about themselves…My nephew has been attending Contra Costa Budokan for over a year and it amazes me to see how much he has learned. It is incredible to see his determination in accomplishing practiced routines, his commitment in attending the classes with a positive attitude and his enthusiasm in participating throughout each class.
