Kids Jiu-Jitsu Classes

Focus, discipline, and confidence are developed simultaneously within our high-quality training programs.

 

Students learn to keep themselves safe by training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, one the most effective martial arts in the world, by learning to define, declare and defend their boundaries, and by being taught how to prevent physical conflict in the first place.

Our Jiu-Jitsu classes combine the best of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with character-development and mindfulness practices more common in other martial arts.

 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is known far and wide for its undeniable effectiveness in real-life situations, and as arguably the most effective martial art in any pure style-vs-style competition.

Our approach restores a focus on developing pro-social attitudes, mindfulness skills, and other valuable personal qualities alongside martial effectiveness. This is reflected through our class structure.

Martial Techniques

Students learn situational awareness, social-emotional skills, and verbal self-defense to prevent fights.

 

And they learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques to safely end them. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has proven itself on the world stage as a superior martial art for realistic fight situations.

 

The basic strategy is to respond to a physical attack by taking it to the ground and then controlling the situation with superior technique.

 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, literally "the gentle art", is unique in that it allows a smaller, weaker person to use leverage, holds, and submissions, to defend themselves against a larger opponent while using a scalable amount of force.

 

Students also practice some strikes (punches and kicks) and strike-defense, but the emphasis is placed on grappling or technical-wrestling.

Live Training

The only way to build skills that will be effective in a real-life situation is by training them under pressure, or what we call "Live Training."

 

Through live training, students experience attempting to use their techniques against an intelligent resisting opponent, forcing them to adapt and refine their technique in a way that no other form of training can replicate.

Mindfulness Practice

Mindfulness practices include breathing exercises, meditation, visualization, intention setting and more. By training their minds in this way, students gain practice calming their own body-mind systems and directing their attention. These are essential skills, especially for people who are learning powerful and potentially dangerous fighting techniques.

Teaching Stories

Teaching Stories use the power of narrative and to highlight and elevate pro-social values like honesty, integrity, curiosity, responsibility, respect, discipline, emotional-regulation and more. Stories include fables, legends, rhyming books, short novels, and more as appropriate for each audience.
