Kids in our program are part of something special. Our program empowers kids to believe in themselves by teaching them practical skills they can use both to prevent bullying and develop a strong athletic foundation for future success both on and off the mats.
Many kids that struggle with traditional team sports excel at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Our kids still train as a team, helping each other learn and grow. However, Jiu-Jitsu provides an opportunity to develop self-reliance and courage on an individual level.
There is no striking in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, making it safe for kids to train every day. Kids learn to use techniques and leverage instead of brute force.
Our Kids programs offer top-level instruction with dedicated coaches. We’re proud to offer:
Engaging Class Format
Each class begins with a sport-specific warm-up that prepares students for the techniques and movements fundamental within BJJ. Next, students have the opportunity to learn and drill techniques. Our rotating curriculum focuses on all aspects of BJJ, from takedowns to submissions. At the end of class, students can spar with each other, which allows them to test their skills.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is ideal for anyone looking to improve their self-esteem, especially youth. While our focus is always on having fun while learning a new skill, our classes provide a structured environment that encourages students to work hard, respect themselves, and respect others.
Our Youth BJJ class offers extremely flexible training, with classes every weekday. Each class is 45 minutes long to optimize the child’s focus without overwhelming them.
Youth are welcome to attend Open Mat in addition to regular classes. We provide additional training opportunities for our youth members looking to compete. All youth members are encouraged to compete when they feel ready.
