Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the ideal martial art for kids. A grappling sport, BJJ does not include punches or kicks, but rather teaches children how to use their weight, flexibility and knowledge to dominate, and ultimately submit an opponent. Practicing BJJ can help children build up their confidence and equip them with the necessary skills for self defence, such as escaping from a back attack or holding an attacker and dominating them on the ground.
Our BJJ teaches kids the fundamental principles of respect, honour and discipline. They must first learn to work safely and respectfully with their partner and team mates as they learn the basic techniques and principles of the sport.
As well as the conceptual challenge of learning the game of BJJ , Kids will also have a lot of FUN! Classes are split and tailored for different age groups to make them easy to understand and fun to participate in. Our kids make friends for life on the mats, let of steam, improve their fitness and agility and many progress to compete at local and national competitions.
Our kids classes are split into two age groups, 5-7 and 8-14. Within the classes children are split by age and ability and work together under close supervision from our team of coaches and assistants.
