Aimed at kids ages 6-15 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. Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is the only Martial Art that will teach your child practical and proven self-defense techniques that can work in real life situations, even against a larger or more physically strong aggressor. Unlike other Martial Arts like Karate or Tae Kwon Do, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu advocates for minimal punches and kicks in self defense settings. This asset makes our martial art an ideal choice for children as it teaches the student to control the situation through grappling without the need for strikes. We will prepare your child to defend themselves against bullies, without turning them into one!


Our program helps young students develop important character traits and values, including:

• Excel in Academics & Athletics
• Boosting Self Esteem and Confidence
• Goal Setting/Achieving
• Discipline
• Leadership Qualities
• Responsibility


Unlike instruction given at "McDojos", Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training does not foster a false sense of accomplishment. BJJ teaches personal accountability and responsibility for rank advancement. Our program does not promote students simply for "participation". Life doesn't hand out ribbons or trophies just for showing up, and BJJ helps them to understand that the real world, like Jiu-Jitsu training, will only reward them for their own hard work and dedication to achieving their goals. Students progress through the ranking system through the judgement of the instructor and is based on attitude, work ethic and understanding of the concepts displayed in class. There is no test. It takes years to progress through each belt and they must be earned and evaluated using a large number of both relative and fixed standards. In fact, the informality and high standards of Jiu-Jitsu is something that is very characteristic of the art itself. THERE ARE NO 10 YEAR OLD BLACK BELTS HERE!  Any school that has a Black Belt under the age of 18, is definitely not looking out for the best interest of the parent or child. Most schools are just trying to take your money! We aren't selling belts, we are selling knowledge, safety, and piece of mind to the parents.
