The ability to push through discomfort and frustration, being highly adaptable and processing defeat constructively are some of the most desirable qualities developed by individuals who practice BJJ regularly. Because of its instinctive wrestling style movements, playful game-like qualities, and efficiency as a form of self defence, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the fastest growing martial arts and competitive sports in the world. Additionally, the complete absence of kicking and punching makes it safe to practice daily for kids of all ages.
BJJ has been appropriately dubbed “human/body chess”. It uses principles of physics and builds on character traits such as patience, humility, creativity and confidence. It requires technical, intelligent and strategic problem solving skills.
BJJ philosophy places major value on perseverance, resilience and individual development while working as a team, remaining calm under pressure and self-awareness.
Kids who have an intrinsic sense of self-esteem and pride are less likely to be bullied OR become bullies. All of our programs are fundamentally built with this understanding in mind and we are very proud of the results: we build students who are strong, skilled, confident, noticeably gentle, helpful and kind in and out of training.
We use a structured and adaptable curriculum, positive reinforcement, respect, fun and a sense of personal responsibility to foster your child's best qualities. We are committed to teaching valuable life skills like resilience and positive leadership while inspiring students to be the best versions of themselves in class and in life.
