Youth Brazilian Jiujitsu  Program
8-15 yrs. old

Invite only

We offer a unique program for kids that will not only provide your child with the necessary skills to defend themselves; they will also gain unmeasurable benefits that will help them in many areas of their life. Jiu-jitsu is not only a proven method of self-defense, but it is also a competitive sport. We also offer your child the opportunity to be on a competitive team and compete across the country.

Benefits of our Program

SELF DEFENSE:

Your child will learn real-world techniques that will help them to defend themselves in dangerous situations. Brazilian jiu-jitsu's focus is to teach students who are smaller and weaker to defend themselves against a larger, stronger assailant. While we teach students that the first choice is to avoid conflict all together, we will prepare them with the skills required to protect themselves in situations that cannot be avoided.

FITNESS:

Each class is structured to begin with a warm-up that may include running, jumping jacks, bear crawls, etc. Following the warm-up are techniques and drills which will challenge the muscles and cardiovascular system. Martial artists are known for being tone and physically fit.

SELF CONFIDENCE:

Your child will naturally gain self- confidence as they work their way through the belt system and progress. Our belt system provides children measurable goals to follow that are realistic to attain.  Your child will gain a sense of self accomplishment by mastering new techniques and earning belts that will follow them throughout their life.
