Organization Description: 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is THE BEST non-violent self defense for children and teens. Children learn takedowns, falling, controls, and at the older ages, “tap-outs.” In the day-to-day classes, we take the punching/kicking element out of the equation and focus mainly on grappling. Through demonstration, students learn a series of techniques each day. After thorough preparation, our students implement the new technique in a controlled and supervised sparring session, where they have the opportunity to practice techniques against a resisting opponent. Because we have removed dangerous punches and kicks from our training, students can spar during each training session, increasing their proficiency in the sport with each class.

Many children (and some teens too!) may feel very reserved, nervous, and shy on their first day, as is the case with many new activities. There will be many new movements and positions that are completely foreign to them. It is completely natural to feel timid, but after a few minutes of instruction, participants are encouraged by the supportive environment and tend to relax.

Our goal at the beginning of class is to make the warm-ups fast-paced and fun. We encourage every child join in, with or without the uniform, to get a feel for the class. Some children prefer to watch at first, which they are welcome to do.

We do not require sparring or competition in the class, but most kids look forward to trying their new techniques. We end each class with fun, cooperative games, which are always a hit with the kids.

Bay Jiu-Jitsu has many offerings for kids, including classes, camps, and Kids Night Outs.
