Judo Classes for West Loop Kids

POW! Kids has been offering unique martial arts and athletic programming for many years. Our classes are accessible to kids in the west loop. One of our favorite sports is Olympic Judo. We are thrilled to announce that we will now be offering Kid's Olympic Judo in our west loop gym. We will continue to be affiliated with the Cohen Judo Club. RJ Cohen and I have Max Schneider to our staff. He will be teaching the Cohen Judo curriculum. Here is a little more information about our new youth judo instructor.

Maxamillian Schneider is a Chicago native and POW!'s resident judoka. Max has spent the last 17 years practicing judo, and started wrestling 7 years ago. He won the gold at the inaugural Youth Olympics in Singapore in 2010, and most recently won the USA Senior National Championships at -66kg. He's a Division 1 wrestling veteran, and two-time state champion. He's competed on four continents, and hopes to make it to a few more.
Max's approach to judo is dynamic . He enjoys teaching children and watching them develop strength and judo skills. He is big advocate of self-defense for children and also reinforce self-defense principles in his classes. Max integrates the best of wrestling to enhance his judo-student’s skills and understanding of competitive judo. He has experience with all age ranges, as well as students with disabilities. In addition to training, he loves to hike run trails, and try new restaurants.
