Five to Fifteen
We encourage kids to roll, fall, push, pull, run, flip and hold each other down.
Classes are fully interactive and hands on. BJJ is a rough and tumble sport.
Although the objective is not to get hurt and BJJ is referred to as the “Gentle Art”. It is physically demanding and highly interactive. The ability to control and master pressure grips comes with experience. While children are learning there is a “curve” some are rougher than others, while compared to the student who uses movement over force, known more as a technical fighter.
We encourage everyone to find their own style and use BJJ to their advantage, meaning what works best for your size, weight and strength.
Four to Six Years Old
Remember that at this age the benefits that most parents are looking forward to provide to their kids are, coordination, balance, control, interacting with other kids, listening skills, responding to commands, eye contact, fun activity, exercising, etc.
Young kids do not have the motor skills and experience to play it safely. Compared to sports where there is striking or collisions, in Jiu jitsu it is difficult to get hurt even when grappling at a high intensity. In the case of a submission hold your child can submit by tapping and no one gets hurt.
It’s A Family Thing
We are a Family Owned and Operated Business
It’s beyond rewarding as parents with kids who practice Jiu Jitsu to share the same passion. When parents train side by side with their children Jiu Jitsu can quickly becomes everyone's favorite subject in the home and topic at the dinner table most nights.
SELF DEFENSE & BEYOND
Martial Arts programs like karate, taekwondo and Muay Thai rely on striking the attacker with violent punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. With Jiu Jitsu we take a different approach. All the techniques are purely defensive and utilize no strikes,kicks or punches. We always teach children how to defuse confrontations with words and never to initiate physical aggression or contact. The confidence Jiu Jitsu Training gives you on an everyday level to overcome physical, verbal, and psychological harassment, makes you Bully Proof and a leader within your peer group.
This is why Brazilian jiu-jitsu is an attractive option. It’s realistic enough to defend yourself, if need be, in a real fight. But it’s not so over-the top that you’re going to the emergency room every month with multiple injuries.
Although it is important to train safe it is also important that your Academy not prevent you from doing your best, or even fighting at all, this is not a successful Academy. Your intensity in training is how you win in competition or in real life situations.
