Kids Jiu Jitsu
We accept students as young as 4 years old. Our kids jiu jitsu class is designed to teach the ability to pay attention, follow directions, learn to respect peers & adults, and to introduce basic self-defense techniques and a healthy lifestyle. Consisting of two groups, Mini Mamutes (4-7) & Little Mamutes (8-13), we have classes every day except Sundays.
Professor Bruno’s ability to teach even out littlest rollers, is fantastic to watch. He gets down on the mats at their level and shows them firsthand how to do the techniques. His commanding presence helps even the most "easily distracted' child learn to pay attention, be respectful and help their teammates.
Our Academy offers several levels of classes for kids as young as 4 years old, through teens, beginners to competition level classes. The current students, especially the older, more experienced students, are taught how to "roll’ with new kids, and will quickly help them adjust to the full-contact sport. In a matter of weeks your child will feel like part of a big family. Many of our students have been with us since we opened our doors, and now compete at the international level representing the academy.
Classes begin with a line up according to rank, from senior belts to newest. We bow to show our respect to our Professor and coaches, and then we warm-up together. Next, Professor demonstrates the techniques we will be learning and pairs the kids up with similar size partners to do practice drills. After a water break we come back to do more practice drills with resistance from our partners, and finally move on to "real sparring" under the watchful eye of professor and his adult, high-ranking coaches. The classes finish with a final line up and handshake to Professor, coaches and each other.
We have bleacher seating for family to watch the training. But be warned, after you watch your kids train for a few weeks, you may just get the bug to train yourself! Many of our kids have parents that are now training with us. It is a great way to spend some quality and healthy time together.
