Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes
With so many options, choosing the right kids’ activities can be tough. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes stand out as a great option if you are looking to challenge your child's mind and body in a way that keeps them excited and engaged. At Movimento we are passionate about our personal approach to kids’ jiu jitsu classes. While many kids’ martial arts involve repetitive, static poses, we believe that the best training is done through patient instruction and carefully observed, dynamic partner work.
Unlike striking arts, such as karate and taekwondo, jiu jitsu uses leverage and body position to throw, sweep, pin, and submit opponents—regardless of their size or strength. This means that while little ones won’t be breaking any boards, the self-defense skills they do learn will be immediately applicable. As they progress, through perseverance and plenty of encouragement, kids will develop a strong sense of self-confidence, discipline, and a healthy respect for others.
Classes are designed for kids as young as 6 and require a traditional uniform, called a gi. This encourages the use of highly refined techniques, thoughtful strategies, and careful control. Each class begins with a warm-up, including cardio exercises and fun games. From there we move on to a daily technique, and finish with live sparring. Under a qualified instructor’s constant supervision, kids will be able to apply what they’ve learned in spirited matches with fellow classmates. Passion, respect, and inspiration drive us in our personal martial-arts pursuits, and we strive every day to pass those on to each of our students.
