KIDS CLASSES MON-FRI
Every new student that joins the academy is automatically a white belt. Stripes are a way for the instructor to tell the student he/she is progressing, but is not yet at the level required for the next belt. Attendance, attitude, and skill level all play a roll in receiving stripes and belts. It’s undeniable that belts and stripes can motivate people and keep them training hard. The belt and stripes method also gives the instructor a way to visually mark the senior students in the class room thus letting junior students know who the skilled guys are. The belt and stripe system is not standardized by any means. It is all subjective to the instructor’s opinion. He can even judge different students by different standards.
We believe that the practice of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is seen as a means for individual development and personal growth. Strength, self-awareness, respect, discipline and responsibility are common core values taught within our kid’s program.
Self-defense is the number one reason why most people decide to study Martial Arts. Martial Arts teach you the techniques to defend yourself, but also the way to think about defending yourself and avoid potential dangers.
Naturally some kids develop their skills and physical abilities earlier than others but we find that many kids who start out with underdeveloped athletic attributes such as strength, speed and size, end up blooming onto some of the finest technicians we have.Technique and mental toughness should be pursued above all physical attributes. As children become more proficient in their selected style of martial arts, their confidence gets a big-boost.
Jiu-jitsu is a whole body workout. The typical class will often be comprised of warm-up calisthenics, teaching and practicing of moves and possibly some sparring. The warm up and practice comprise the bulk of the time, and for that time your child will be constantly on the go.
Children who train Jiu-jitsu learn vital problem solving skills. Every time anyone trains they are always faced with new problems and situations that must be tackled. This is a great way to sharpen young developing minds.
There isn’t anything quite like how Martial Arts teaches children the importance of discipline and respect. At the end of it all, though, the enjoyment and positivity of training Martial Arts is one of the most important reasons a child should learn Jiu-jitsu.
