Kids Martial Arts
Little Monsters (4-7 yrs) – “Play Jiu-Jitsu for Fun!”
This class is an innovative approach to teaching martial arts. It is designed in a way to allow kids to fall in love with Jiu-Jitsu through the use of imaginative games, stories, enthusiasm, and energetic atmosphere. The teacher is an actor and plays different roles, such as a robber, giant, crocodile, crazy horse, etc. The kids “play” Jiu-Jitsu with the teacher in order to become accustomed to the movements and techniques without having to be overwhelmed by bigger, more aggressive kids right away. This is the perfect buffer class to help introduce children to the martial arts.
Positive affirmation is a key part of the curriculum, which includes a belt system of progression for each student based upon attendance, attitude, effort, consistency, improvement, and skill. Instilling discipline is crucial to building a solid foundation for an individual’s future success in life. The Little Monsters program incorporates many tools which help build consistency and diligence in our students.
Junior Jiu-Jitsu (8-12 yrs) – “Embark on the journey of a lifetime”
Just as our Little Monsters program is a great introduction to the martial arts or any other type of developmental training, the Junior BJJ program is an incredible confidence-building “spring-board” into other sports, martial arts, and various other forms of self-expression.
Junior Jiu-Jitsu is a great way to get your child involved and comfortable in an athletic activity, even if he/she lacks experience or talent in other sports. Beyond the above mentioned benefits of this program, there are a myriad of other positive results that will come with the territory. In this class, we cover the fundamental techniques in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which are broken down in a simple, fun, and exciting way. Games help the students “warm up” to a stage of learning readiness, quickly shifting them into the proper “learning gear.” Fun drills and live “rolling” / grappling help the techniques become marinated into the muscle memory of the student’s nervous system, and each child will learn to react without conscious thought (an essential part of self-defense). Students become used to an opponent or potential attacker’s weight- and, in so doing, learn to avoid dangerous positions which can threaten their safety.
