Our aim is to build champion kids who are well rounded athletically and academically. Our focus is to help kids develop both on and off the mat. Our Kids Gracie Jiu Jitsu Program will help your child develop:
This is made possible by integrating physical education with our specialised self defence program. Children are taught self defence techniques in a martial arts environment. A combination of fun and skill oriented games and exercises ensure that your child will develop co-ordination, balance and strength. We focus on your child acquiring these skills and also to understand when, how, why and in what context they should apply these skills. We do this in a fun friendly environment where your children will exercise both their mind and body.
Classes will be weekdays from 4pm for children aged 5-14. This will enable your children to understand control when partnered with children smaller than themselves. It will also give them an understanding of how to deal with a larger opponent. Bullying is a major concern for schools and parents alike, Gracie Jiu Jitsu can help your child gain the confidence to stand up for themselves, without resorting to violence.
As your kids grow they will be shown more complex techniques building on the fundamental skills that they have already acquired. Once they outgrow the teen’s class, the instructors will invite them to begin training with the adults in the adults classes. Usually a mix of some adult and some teen’s classes is encouraged to make sure this transition is smooth.
Another focus of our kids program is to teach kids the importance of manners and social skills. Kids will be taught to be empathetic and to help their team mates. Kids will also experience a solid workout. Exposing to kids to the martial arts will help them be fit and healthy and ensure that they understand how to stay active, even through times of great stress, like exams. This produces quality outcomes for both the children and parents.
