Jiu Jitsu Fundamentals for Kids Using Realistic Applications

The Kids Jiu Jitsu program is for ages 7 thru 14 and meets twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:00 to 6:00pm.

Jiu Jitsu means "Gentle Art" in the way that it is supposed to yield to the opponents force and use that against them.

The art uses methods to block, redirect, deflect, or pass by attacks, taking the opponents balance and sending them to the ground.

Jiu Jitsu also focuses on ground control where there are many methods to pin, control, and submit the opponent.

The 5 principals of we teach in Kids Jiu Jitsu are:

  • Balance
  • Sensativity
  • Leverage
  • Utilize the opponents strength to your advantage
  • Attack the opponents weakness

Why should my child should sign up for the Kids Jiu Jitsu Program?

Jiu Jitsu is an extremely useful art when it comes to confrontations and close quarter combat.

While most fights start with two people standing up, about 80% end up with one or both people on the ground.

This is where Jiu Jitsu shines.  Students learn how to properly handle each situation whether standing up, or if the confrontation goes to the ground.

Jiu Jitsu also develops core strength, body intelligence, and muscle memory.

Another reason why you should consider Jiu Jitsu for your child, is that other martial arts have changed over the years in that they focus more on the sport element than self defense.

Jiu Jitsu's application is best suited for self defense situations.

The Kids Jiu Jitsu class focuses on 5 basic training areas:

  • Ukemi - The art of falling
  • Atemi - Vital point striking
  • Nage Waza- Throwing techniques
  • Kime-no-kata - Forms of self defense
  • Randori - Grappling from the ground or stand up
