CHILDRENS BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU & KICKBOXING (BULLY DEFENSE, SELF-DEFENSE, AND MORE)
All of the techniques shown in our children's program are designed to help children gain self-confidence. We help our students apply that self-confidence and important BJJ skills in what they learn every day in order to protect themselves and/or to compete.
Other aspects of our classes include the proper way to handle being approached by or speaking to strangers, how to get a hold of the police, knowing your address and telephone numbers, how to identify a potentially dangerous situation, etc.
Our Children's Program classes include a 1 1/2 hour class for kids of the ages 5-12. Each class consists of:

This part of the class is the time when we speak with the children in order to make them aware of certain dangers that could happen.
