For kids ages 5-14 yrs old, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Kids Program integrates physical education and self-defense technique with conditioning and skill-building games aimed at improving coordination, motor skills, agility, and flexibility. Our program helps young students develop important character traits and values, including:
We encourage consistency, attendance, effort, and determination. These elements are the focus of our Jiu Jitsu kids program. Many of the benefits are obtained indirectly, so the kids improve in a natural and graduated pace, which instills positive reinforcement.
Jiu Jitsu will also teach your child to respect one’s opponent. This helps in controlling tendencies such as foul language and poor sportsmanship. Your child will learn to treat everyone with respect as he or she builds relationships with their peers. Every kid starts at white belt. As your child progresses through the program with skill level and age taken into consideration the next belt may be GREY to YELLOW followed by ORANGE then GREEN. No child can receive a Blue Belt until they are at least 16 years of age.
