Kid’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Licensing Organization: Carlson Gracie HQ
BJJ is a martial art and combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves or another against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and with proper technique, taking the fight to the ground. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the best non-violent self defense for children and teens. Children learn takedowns, falling, controls, and at the older ages, “tap-outs.” In the day-to-day classes, we focus mainly on grappling. Through demonstration, students learn a series of techniques each day. After thorough preparation, our students implement the new technique in a controlled and supervised sparring session, where they have the opportunity to practice techniques against a resisting opponent. Kids of every age enjoy grappling and learning how to use their moves with their peers.

Kid’s Krav Maga
Licensing Organization: Krav Maga Worldwide
Our kid’s program is a fun, encouraging alternative to traditional martial arts self defense classes for kids. Instead of forms and drills, Krav Maga for children teaches tools and techniques tailored for situations that commonly confrontkids at school, on the playground, and in life. Far from being a physical-only class, Krav Maga for children trains young minds to think and react with an emphasis on situational awareness and creative problem-solving. By linking their physical activity to real self-defense techniques, we focus on training the muscles they will be asked to use both in class and the real world. During our self defense classes for kids, they are taught awareness of their environment, what to do if they are attacked, and when to avoid a fight. By cultivating the proper mindset and the physical skills needed to support it, you help keep your child safe even when you aren’t around.
Monday and Wednesday: 5:15 – 6:00 pm
