Our kids jiu-jitsu program teaches the same techniques as our regular adult program, as well as the entire curriculum of Gracie Self Defense techniques. We use a structured teaching method to maximize your child’s learning.
In each class, we go through a series of warmups and drills all related to Jiu-Jitsu movements and techniques.
Following the warmups, we will demonstrate and drill 2 to 3 Gracie Self Defense Techniques.
Following the self defense techniques, we will demonstrate and drill 2 to 3 Jiu-Jitsu techniques, usually related techniques, or a combination of techniques that flow from one to another.
Lastly, we generally conclude our classes with 15 or more minutes of live sparring or “rolling” where your child attempts to use their new (and old) knowledge on resisting opponents of varying size and experience levels.
Our Kids jiu-jitsu classes are on Friday evenings from 6pm until 7pm, and Saturday mornings from 9am until 11am. The cost is $60 per month. Typically, kids as young as 5 years old can begin training.
