Self-Defense

Studies suggest that “bullying” may be the leading cause of low self-esteem in children, and according to some surveys, less than 15% of kids actually report bullying to teachers or parents. Children’s inability to stand up to a bully is rooted in profound fear for their personal safety as well as peer pressure.

kids-jiu-jitsu-1Think about your child’s situation for a moment?  They are caught in a place where they just want to be nice to others but someone mean is picking on them and tormenting them every day.   It could be at the bus stop, in English class or after school as they walk home.  They don’t want to get picked on any more but they don’t just don’t know what to do. They don’t want to “tell” on the bully to teachers or parents because they feel that nothing will happen and they will still have to deal with the bully every day and they don’t want to look “uncool” to their peers.  This is a terrible place to be and a prime reason why child suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for ages 10-24. (2013 CDC WISQARS)  We can help your child stand up for themselves to any bully!


Our Kids Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the best and safest self-defense martial arts a child can take period! That’s because no one has to get punched!


Our world famous Jiu-Jitsu program teaches your child to take an opponent down using simple and effective Gracie Jiu-Jitsu grappling techniques and then controlling the bully through getting on top and “making a bully give up.”  No one has to get hurt.


It’s very controlled, very easy and very fun!  In fact, your child won’t realize they are learning self-defense they’ll just think they are wrestling around and having a good time.  We can’t guarantee they won’t get picked on but we can guarantee they will have an effective “last resort,” that they can use where no one gets hurt.

Don’t rely on martial arts that require your child to primarily punch or kick.  They could end up hurting another child severely or worse yet end up breaking their own hand.  Gracie Jiu-Jitsu it’s fun and no one has to get hurt!

Character Development

For Rank advancement, in addition to “Mat Chats” in class, we require all students to turn in character worksheets that they will fill out on topics such as honesty, focus and helping others.  Students must also turn in Parent/Teacher worksheets every quarter so that our staff and instructors will know how your child is doing at school and home.  Students cannot rank advance if they are having issues at home or school. If we are teaching them to defend themselves it’s important that they know when the proper time to defend themselves is. It’s that important!

Balance and Coordination 

No Kid wants to be picked last for the school soccer or basketball team.  Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the best martial art for developing hip movement which is essential in all sports.  It’s will also greatly improve their hand/eye coordination!  IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILD TO EXCEL AT OTHER SPORTS THEN GRACIE JIU-JITSU IS THE ANSWER!
