Why Should Your Child Train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Designed for children 6-12 years of age, our Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is an effective, practical martial art that teaches children non-violent self-defense and conflict resolution skills.Our Youth BJJ classes begin with warm-up drills designed to build stamina, strength, and speed. After the warm-up, students are shown a series of techniques. Although the main focus of the class is on grappling, we also implement safe take-down techniques. After the techniques are practiced, we allow students to drill (spar) each technique in a controlled, supervised environment.

What to Expect on the First Day
It is perfectly normal for a child to feel very reserved, nervous and shy on their first day, as is often the case for people of any age trying a new activity. There will be many new movements and positions that are completely foreign to them. For all that, our instructor creates a supportive, fun environment to help kids relax while introducing them to these new, basic techniques.We encourage the child to join in, with or without a uniform, to get a feel for the class. Some children prefer to watch at first, which they are welcome to do.
Before allowing your child to spar with another, we ensure they know the basics and feel comfortable practicing them with a partner. We incorporate fun, cooperative games into each class, which are always a hit with the kids!
