Jiu-Jitsu, which means “gentle art”, emphasizes the use of technique and leverage. Your child won’t have to rely on size, strength, or speed to defend themselves. We teach them to subdue their opponent in a safe and humane way, without having to rely on kicks and punches. Your child will develop physical awareness of balance, reflexes, flexibility and coordination, as well as build on the mental aspects of their personality such as self-esteem, discipline, confidence, compassion and good work ethic. The classes are taught in a positive, fun and friendly manner, so your child will enjoy learning the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
