Kids Martial Arts & BJJ

Kids BJJ Classes

In our kids BJJ classes, students will be immersed in an environment with the positive core values of focus, self-discipline, respect, persistence, and cooperation. We provide a challenging yet compassionate atmosphere that ensures that our students feel safe and cared for.

Kids BJJ classes are offered to youth aged 3-14, divided into three categories according to age, maturity, and skill level. Additionally, students aged 6-14 can participate in our mixed youth class.

Tykes BJJ (3-5 year old)

Our Tykes BJJ class focuses on anti-bullying and self-defense as we practice the very basics of Jiu Jitsu. Classes are kept short to account for potentially short attention spans!

Kids BJJ (6-9 year old)

In our Kids BJJ class, students learn the fundamental positions in Jiu-Jitsu: the basics of sweeping, submissions, guard pulling, takedowns, and transitions between techniques. Anti-bullying and self-defense techniques are still emphasized within the teaching. The class is broken down into the different belts to ensure that each student can work comfortably at their appropriate level, with higher belts learning more advanced techniques and new students focusing on beginner BJJ techniques.

Youth BJJ (10-14 year old)

In our Youth BJJ class, students continue to work on fundamental Jiu-Jitsu positions, improving their sweeping, submissions, guard pulling, takedowns, and transitions. The class is broken down into to different belts, ensuring that each student enjoys a comfortable challenge that corresponds to their skill level as they progress. As with all kids classes, anti-bullying and self-defense techniques form an important part of the curriculum.

Kids/Youth Combo BJJ (6-14 year old)

This class is open to any students between 6 and 14 years old. The curriculum is adjusted for the students who are in attendance, with the core curriculum run in a similar manner to the Kids BJJ and Youth BJJ classes.
