Youth Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) isn’t just for adults. In fact, it’s the perfect activity for kids! When it comes to self defense, BJJ empowers a smaller individual to fight against a larger opponent. But the advantages don’t stop there – BJJ helps kids gain confidence, learn discipline, focus their energy, foster respect for others, and be a part of a one-of-a-kind community full of future friends and mentors! Which is why we offer children’s programs for different age ranges and skill levels. At Gracie Barra Glendale we offer several Kids & Teens Jiu Jitsu Programs:
- GBK Jiu Jitsu (Little Champs)
- GBK Jiu Jitsu (Juniors)
Youth Jiu Jitsu Programs:
Our classes focus on developing your child’s physical and mental abilities. We teach your child basic techniques and drills that build strength, coordination, and flexibility.
We also incorporate games and activities that help improve their balance and agility. Our instructors are trained to work with young children and create a safe, supportive environment for learning.
Our Kids BJJ program also promotes important life skills such as discipline, focus, and respect. We encourage positive social interactions and teamwork to develop confidence and self-esteem. Your child will learn valuable skills that they can carry with them into adulthood.
GBK Jiu Jitsu (Little Champs)
Our Little Champs Program was created to provide children ages 4-6 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect. In this 50 minute class we introduce fundamental Jiu Jitsu heavily focused on self defense. While also dedicating class time to their physical development as well. In this class we “hide” much of the physical movements into more kid friendly terms and games.
GBK Jiu Jitsu (Juniors)
The GBK Juniors Program was created to provide children ages 7 to 11. This class introduces self defense Jiu Jitsu as well as some sport and competition techniques. Children at this age are introduced to basic submissions and we take a more direct approach to their skills development. Our classes focus on teaching your child the fundamentals of Jiu Jitsu while also developing their physical abilities. We teach techniques that improve strength, balance, coordination, and flexibility. We also incorporate drills and exercises that help improve their speed and agility. In addition to physical development, our program also promotes important life skills such as discipline, focus, and respect. We teach your child the importance of setting goals and working towards achieving them.
