Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is by far the best self-defense for children and teens. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu focuses on grappling and submission techniques. Students learn take-downs, falling, grips, controls, and submissions which are highly effective for neutralizing, controlling, and restraining opponents. Students learn the core techniques of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu through drilling and sparring. Because Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training doesn't involve any striking, students can spar live during every class, significantly acceralting their learning.

What Students should Expect on the First Day

New students are highly encouraged to jump right in on their first day. New students may attend the first two classes with our without their uniform. Some new students prefer to sit and watch the first class too, however students will get a much better sense of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu by joining in. Class starts with a 10-15 minute warm-up, followed by learning technique and drilling. Finally students spar live with each other to test out their skills and improve their stamina. Many new students are reluctant during and after the first class. However, it only takes a few classes for new students to learn the basic positions and techniques, and to find out how fun it is.
