Gracie Jiu Jitsu teaches children the skills to counter aggression with a calm and confident demeanor. Our students will learn how to identify potential dangers to keep themselves safe from harm. They are taught Gracie Jiu Jitsu techniques in a safe, friendly, disciplined atmosphere, with appropriate room for fun, when earned.
Students at every age need a plan to neutralize bully aggression as well as develop self-confidence. With classes beginning at ages 5 and up, our students are taught to verbally deescalate any situation with confidence and awareness - if possible. If there is no other option than a physical altercation, the student will posses the self defense techniques to keep them safe. Our favorite Gracie Jiu Jitsu saying is "We don't fight fire with fire, we fight fire with water".
Noting the importance of parents being comfortable with where your students are learning, we regularly update our coaches clearances. Many are parents themselves, with children in the classes or waiting to age in.
In order to have good structure, you first must have a solid foundation. Beginner students will learn the basics and fundamental techniques of Gracie Jiu Jitsu and Self Defense. These standing and ground techniques will heighten awareness of your surroundings and enhance your capacity to identify and withdraw from possible threatening situations.
Beginner Gracie Jiu Jitsu students will be introduced to the Gracie lifestyle including healthy eating, physical fitness, and discipline.
Our Mixed Level Gracie Jiu Jitsu program is where you will develop and refine your techniques and skills through drilling, specific exercises and live, supervised Jiu Jitsu training in both Gi and No Gi. As you move forward in the program, you will not only learn which techniques work best for your body type, but also where you have difficulties so that you may isolate those areas and improve more rapidly. Whether it be for self defense, fun and exercise or to compete with our team, you can progress at a level comfortable for you. This is your journey, we are here to help you along your way.
These classes include conditioning, stand up, positional training and lots of rolling. Mixed Level students are encouraged to attend to help prepare our competitors with intense training. Whether they compete or not is up to each individual, though we believe in the philosophy "you get better, we get better".
