Youth Fundamentals

The typical class begins with a 15 minute dynamic warm up where the students practice basic BJJ movements such as shoulder rolls, hip escapes and breakfalls followed by a series of stretches. The class is then divided into three groups.

Ages 5-7

We introduce BJJ to students in a manner that is fun and engaging. A strong emphasis is placed in the development of motor skills and body movements. 

Ages 7-10

Students begin to learn more basic movements and techniques. The typical class involves 2-3 techniques followed by positional sparring where the students begin in specified positions/situations.  The class ends with one or two rounds of rolling.

Ages 10-15

Students learn fundamental movements and techniques. A stronger emphasis is placed on the details. The typical class involves 2-3 techniques followed by positional sparring where the students begin in specified positions/situations.  The class ends with one or two rounds of rolling.


Youth competition Class

 

These classes are intended for kids who have the desire to compete.  Intensity in these classes is significantly higher and the goal is to condition the students' mind and body in preparation for the stresses and demands that are associated with competing in a combat sport.

Because of the more demanding nature of these classes, that requires an increased level of focus, permission from the coaching staff is required prior to being able to attend.

.We understand that it can be intimidating for some women to learn and train in a class in which the majority in attendance are men.  The women-only class was established to provide women with a less intimidating and more inviting atmosphere to train in.
