Pre BJJ Ages 4-6:
Pre BJJ for ages 4-6 offers an introduction to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a safe, age- appropriate environment. Children learn basic positions, sweeps and escapes, with the main focus being on self control and body awareness while working with a partner. Fun obstacle courses and BJJ games are also included! (Note: Pre-BJJ students do NOT learn submissions.)

Kids BJJ Ages 7-12:
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) focuses on grappling with each practitioner attempting to get to a dominant position and attack with a submission hold. Our kids' BJJ classes are taught in a fun and entertaining way, but the techniques are very real, very effective, and must be used carefully. Self control and focus are a must! Each class begins with a very active warmup. It is followed by standard drills that are done each class to build muscle memory and solid fundamentals. After this, there are unique techniques taught for that class. Every class finishes with the students sparring (rolling) with each other.

BJJ for Young Women Ages 11-17:
One of our most popular classes, BJJ for Young Women was created for teen and pre-teen girls to learn the art of Jiu Jitsu in a safe, comfortable environment. Perfect for female students who are a bit nervous about trying grappling for the first time, this class includes all the elements of the regular kids BJJ classes described above.
