TINY CHAMPS – INTRO TO BJJ
The Tiny Champions program is designed to introduce Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to your children. Exercises done in class are designed to help them gain better balance and coordination. They will improve their motor skills and learn to focus and respect those that are leaders over them in a fun environment that mixes games and drills to keep them interested. No submission holds will be introduced at this age group.
LITTLE CHAMPS – 7 to 10 YEAR OLDS
The Little Champions program is your child’s first contact with the sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. They will learn how to beat strength with the use of leverage, positional control, and submission attacks. Their self-esteem increases, they learn how to defend themselves and their loved ones, and they will get much needed exercise and flexibility. We work with individual cases and situations, so you might see a 6 year old in this class and an 11 year old might be graduating from this program.
JUNIOR CHAMPS – 11 to 14 YEAR OLDS
The pre-teens and teens group is known as Junior Champions. Here they will be prepared for the adults’ classes that will be available to them by the time they turn 15/16 years old. Once they are 16, their ranking system automatically changes to the adult ranking system and they will be promoted during the adult classes.
This is our most important class. We believe in the basics, and that without the basics one cannot advance in BJJ. Our curriculum of techniques will have us focus on a certain number of moves on the first half of the month, and variations on the second half. So it is important that we have these classes available for everyone.
BJJ – ALL LEVELS JIU-JITSU
As the name implies, this class is open to all belt levels, including beginning white belts. We either reinforce the Fundamentals curriculum, or more often than not, we improvise with techniques that are applicable by both advanced and beginner students. In this class, white belts get to roll with higher ranks, thus getting a feel for what is to come down the road in their BJJ career.
