KIDS BRAZILIAN JIUJITSU

Give Your Kids the Lifelong Gifts of Personal Success, Confidence, Discipline and Self-Defense

…While Making Sure They Have a TON of Fun

Martial arts classes normally makes you think of self-defense, being strong, fit and safe. The truth is, it’s all that and WAY more!

DOES YOUR CHILD HAVE

ANY OF THESE CHALLENGES?

They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.

They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.

They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.

THE DIFFICULTIES OF RAISING CHILDREN ARE NEAR ENDLESS

LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION…

There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.

Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?

But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.

YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!

Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.

Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.

LIFELONG CHARACTER AND SUCCESS TRAITS

Your kids’ everyday friends aren’t the main concern anymore when it comes to character development. Now you have to worry about all the negative and harmful influences that the internet can introduce into your children’s lives.

The true benefit or our classes are the character and success traits that are developed through martial arts training.

Through learning the skills and techniques of martial arts, to the guidance and inspiration of our instructors and the positive social interaction with their fellow classmates, your kids will develop a whole list of skills.

FITNESS DISGUISED

Face it. Between the foods we eat and the constant sitting and staring into screens and devices, many kids aren’t getting enough regular exercise.

Our martial arts classes for kids are full exercise routines disguised as a boatload of fun! That’s because they are jam packed with activities, games and drills that are all designed to disguise the repetition of training.

Of course it’s important for your kids to exercise and wear themselves out – they stay healthy, sleep well, and develop their minds and bodies. But just as important, our classes will help develop at a young age the physical habits they need to grow into healthy adults.

SELF-DEFENSE FROM PREDATORS AND BULLIES

We never want our kids to have to use these skills in modern life, but every good parent still wants their kids to be safe.

That’s why our martial arts training is very serious about teaching your kids the skills needed for self-protection in any circumstance, from the neighborhood bully to a stranger on the street (and so much more).

But knowing how to defend oneself is only half the battle. Our classes teach your child the respect and self-discipline needed to diffuse a situation without violence whenever possible – as well as the knowledge to know when force is the only way to safety.

TONS OF F-U-N !!

We never forget… kids are kids and they deserve to have some fun!

We can’t guarantee that their normal school teachers are making learning an enjoyable experience, but we DO guarantee that your kid will have a blast in our martial arts classes.

It really is a challenge to design a class that keeps children focused on learning, respect, and discipline while still having fun… but our classes are created just for that. They are so full of ideas, activities, and games that your kids will never get bored or stagnate.

It’s also a fantastic and healthy environment for them (and you) to make friends with other like-minded students. It really is a place where laughter, cheer and happiness abound.

NO GI BRAZILIAN JIUJITSU

What are the Differences Between Gi & No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

“Gi” and “No-Gi” are terms used to describe forms of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. “Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu” is grappling with the use of a traditional Gi (aka “Kimono”), which allows you to grab the clothing of your opponent. “No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu” is grappling without the traditional uniform. Instead of the Gi, you wear shorts and a rash guard. Additionally, in No-Gi, you cannot grab your opponent’s clothing.

Here are the main differences:

Dress

In Gi, you will wear a BJJ Gi. In No Gi, you wear shorts and a T-shirt or rash guard.

Grips

The Gi provides numerous opportunities for establishing grips on both the jacket and pants. The most common jacket grip is the collar/sleeve grip. The grips allow you to have great control  of your opponent and to submit your opponent using their or your own Gi. The Gi allows a much smaller opponent to control a bigger one. In No-Gi, you have more wrestling-based grips, such as the neck. It is harder to control an opponent and an opponent is more likely to slip or power out of controls.

Strategy

No-Gi is faster paced. The Gi slows things down as a result of the natural friction of the garment and the advanced control from the grips.

While and Gi and No-Gi are very similar, the way both styles evolve are very different. In Gi, the numerous grips and Gi material mean that alot of set ups are based on using the Gi matrerial for ex: lapel or worm guard (which is impossible in No Gi). In No -Gi, you will likely focus more on clinching and establishing wrestling-based grips. You will find No Gi players using more chokes and foot locks.

OHANA JUDO

WHAT IS JUDO?

Judo is derived from Jujutsu. It was created by Professor Jigoro Kanowho was born in Japan on October 28, 1860 and who died May 4, 1938 after a lifetime of promoting Judo. Mastering several styles of jujutsu including Kito-Ryu and Tenjin-Shinyo Ryu in his youth he began to develop his own system based on modern sports principles. In 1882 he founded the Kodokan Judo Institute in Tokyo where he began teaching and which still is the international authority for Judo.

The name Judo was chosen because it means the “gentle or yielding way”. Kano emphasized the larger educational value of training in attack and defense so that it could be a path or way of life that all people could participate in and benefit from. He eliminated some of the traditional jujutsu techniques and changed training methods so that most of the moves could be done with full force to create a decisive victory without injury. The popularity of Judo increased dramatically after a famous contest hosted by the Tokyo police in 1886 where the Judo team defeated the most well-known jujutsu school of the time. It then became a part of the Japanese physical education system and began its spread around the world. Dr. Kano, President of the University of Education, Tokyo, dedicated his life, studied these ancient martial art of Jujutsu and integrated what he considered to be the best of their techniques into what is now the modern sport of Judo.

Judo is many things to different people. It is a fun sport, an art, a discipline, a recreational or social activity, a fitness program, a means of self-defense or combat, and a way of life. It is all of these and more.

Judo was introduced into the Olympic Games in 1964 and is practiced by millions of people throughout the world today. People practice Judo to excel in competition, to stay in shape, to develop self-confidence, and for many other reasons. But most of all, people do Judo just for the fun of it.

JUDO IS FUN!

As in all sports, Judo has a strict set of rules that governs competition and ensures safety. For those who want to test their skills, Judo offers the opportunity for competition at all skill levels, from club to national tournaments, to the Olympic Games. There are separate weight divisions for men and women, and boys and girls.

Judo is best known for it’s spectacular throwing techniques but also involves considerable grappling on the ground utilizing specialized pins, control holds, arm locks, and Judo choking techniques. Judo emphasizes safety, and full physical activity for top conditioning. Judo is learned on special mats for comfort and safety.

Judo is unique in that all age groups, both sexes, and most disabled persons can participate together in learning and practicing the sport. Judo is an inexpensive, year-round activity, that appeals to people from all walks of life. Many people over sixty years of age enjoy the sport, as well as very young boys and girls.

 

Judo develops self-discipline and respect for oneself and others. Judo provides the means for learning self-confidence, concentration, and leadership skills, as well as physical coordination, power, and flexibility. As a sport that has evolved from a fighting art, it develops complete body control, fine balance, and fast reflexive action. Above all, it develops a sharp reacting mind well-coordinated with the same kind of body. Judo training gives a person an effective self-defense system if the need arises. Judo is often a part of the training done by athletes preparing for MMA matches.
