Days Offered: Monday

Ages Offered: 3rd - 5th Grade

Class Description:

Bjj (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)takes pleasure in being regarded as the “gentle art,” enabling a smaller and weaker person to defend himself against a larger opponent by using leverage and submissions (chokes and locks).

The form of training that is offered will be unique in that all of the skills are entirely defensive and do not include any strikes. Students will learn to protect themselves if they are assaulted, as well as how to defuse the danger and regain control. They will develop problem solving skills and prepare to face many problems and obstacles in everyday life, such as dealing with a bully. As a result, it will instill in your child the character traits that will lead to success in many aspects of life.
Jiu Jitsu employs concepts such as reaction, leverage, and base. Students learn to utilize an opponent’s strength to their advantage rather than struggling against it.
It promotes a greater sense of body awareness and coordination, which leads to increased confidence and inner discipline. Kids not only learn self defense effectively, but they also improve their kinesthetic abilities, allowing them to thrive in any other sport in which they participate.
The bulk of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class time is spent working with partners and practicing moves. This constant close contact enables practitioners to instill the natural phenomenon of body action and reaction to leverage and balance in an interactive manner, rather than individual repetitive moves in theoretical situations. Kids learn to read and anticipate their opponents’ moves, and then respond accordingly. They are continuously exposed to the dynamic, and it gets hard wired into their body’s memory.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu, on the other hand, offers an added benefit: mental toughness. Bjj is a physical chess game in which you are always planning your next move in response to your opponent. Physical contact with other people, a sense of belongingness, goal setting and accomplishment, and confidence gained from learning and performing new skills all contribute to the development of mental toughness.
