Brazilian Jiu Jitsu emphasizes leverage and technique over strength and power, making it an ideal self-defense system for kids. The natural flow and motion of BJJ helps our younger students excel at learning the techniques, regardless of their size or athletic ability. Jiu Jitsu teaches children to think instead of panic, which is beneficial in potentially serious situations, including threats from other children.
Benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Kids
Enhanced social skills (team environment)
Respect (we teach our students not to be bullies)
With parental consent, our students also have the opportunity to compete in safe and supervised tournaments with kids from other schools.
Gi (kimono/uniform) and RashGuard. (To be purchased at Control Jiu Jitsu)
Beginners are welcome to wear regular gym clothes during the trial period. Shorts, sweatpants and t-shirts are acceptable for training. Please avoid baggy clothing and any garments with extra or loose pockets (cargo shorts) as these may become a hazard for fingers or feet to become entangled.
