Our Kids Jiu-Jitsu Program
A fun and enjoyable program for kids, which through drills and fun games develops their physical coordination, social skills, problem solving skills, discipline and respect. Children through continued practice learn to control their emotions and apply their rational mind to resolve problems.
Gracie Jiu Jitsu also gives these children the added benefit of helping them deal with physical confrontations in a non-aggressive manner. Unlike most martial arts programs, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu does not teach your child to use damaging and aggressive kicks and punches but teaches them to take control of a situation with their words, and should a situation get physical, to stay safe and control the situation with controlling techniques.
Bullying in school can have long lasting impacts on a child’s life, we help children to discover the confidence to find their voice, to stand up to bullies and communicate.
The games and activities aim to keep it all very fun and enjoyable for kids. Ultimately, the cooperative class environment aims to use these games and drills to help build better members for society.
