Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Self Defense for kids are divided into three different age groups: 5-6, 7-9 and 10-13 years old. We aim to develop goal setting, health, listening skills, respect, discipline, confidence and motor skills.
Warm-ups are based on Ginastica Natural, animal movements and the fundamental movements of jiu jitsu (break falls, technical stand-ups, rolls, hip movements, bridge etc). Gracie Jiu Jitsu self defense techniques are taught, along with games that teach kids how to throw an opponent while on the feet and control an opponent on the ground
Life skills, conflict avoidance and street smarts are discussed in every class. Live training is an integral part of the program for 7 years old and up and advanced 5/6 year olds. Students age 9 and above have the opportunity to compete in local tournaments to test their skills and compete as a team.
Our Kids BJJ program is operating at capacity, we have a waiting list for some age groups. Please contact us to request enrollment. Sponsorship is available for exceptional children with the capability to commit to our program.
