Real Kid's Self Defense, WITHOUT Hitting!

  • Rule at Home : No Hitting

  • Rule at School: No Hitting

  • Crossover BJJ Kids Rule: NO HITTING!

Finally an effective Kid's Self Defense Program that teaches your child real Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu self defense skills, yet reinforces the "No Hitting" rule that they've learned at home and school! If a child cannot avoid a confrontation and they need to defend themselves, they do not need to harm another with violent strikes in order to defend themselves. Instead, we teach proven leverage based escape and control techniques that a child, of any size, can learn to effectively make themselves safe. We teach Kid's Self Defense, not Violence. All of our kids learn anti-bully strategies (verbal and non-verbal). Come see the difference! 

This program is specifically designed for children ages 4-14. All of our kids classes are taught in fun and SAFE environment by professional and experienced instructors. Our classes are designed to impart valuable life skills to our students on and off the mats; including effective self-defense, confidence, goal-setting and teamwork.

Class Details

Adult Beginner Fundamentals  -  This class focuses on the learning and application of the basic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu concepts and techniques. Students will learn the fundamental skills and strategies of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, including a variety of submissions and escapes. This class will focus on proper techniques from the standing position covering basic throws and Jiu-Jitsu take-downs, Self- Defense and ground work.

This class is effective for the beginner as well as the advanced student looking to perfect his/her basic Jiu-Jitsu techniques. This class does not include sparring (rolling) however students are always welcome to stay after to roll. 

Adult Gi All Levels -  In this class a gi (kimono) is worn to simulate clothing for a more realistic self defense experience and to help teach the student the use of grips, leverage, and technique to control and submit a larger more powerful opponent. This is the more traditional way to train BJJ, as well as a requirment to earn rank. Technique is always followed by sparring (rolling). This class focuses on Beginner and Intermediate Level techniques and strategies. This class is open to students of all experience and rank/skill levels.  

Adult No Gi All Levels - This class focuses on applying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu without the traditional uniform. Most students simply wear shorts and a T-shirt/Rash Guard. Much of the ground game aspect of what you see in mixed martial arts (MMA) is learned in No-Gi training and can be applied to self defense situations. Students who have previous wrestling experience tend to find No Gi Jiu-Jitsu to be a great extension to their wrestling background. This class is open to students of all experience and rank/skill levels.

Adult No Gi Takedowns All Levels - This class is much like our Adult No Gi All Levels classes, however it’s technique instruction and drilling is focused entirely on Takedowns and Takedown Defense. This class will allow a student to be well rounded and have both Stand-up and Ground skills. Technique and Drilling is always followed by sparring (rolling). This class is open to students of all experience and rank/skill levels.

Open Mats - Our open mat training is designed to allow students to work on specific trouble areas and practice newly learned techniques in a informal format. This class allows members the opportunity to spar, drill, or analyze techniques and improve their Jiu-Jitsu Game. An instructor is always present to help answer questions. We offer Open Mats which are open to Members Only; as well as Open Mats which students from any academy may attend. Open Mats are open to all experience and rank/skill levels.

About Private Lessons

While Group classes are an established way to teach our programs, largely because of the diversity of training partners, private classes are a perfect complement. The benefits of private lessons include scheduling flexibility, personal attention, and linear presentation of techniques. Private Lessons are available for all of our programs from our specially trained instructors. Contact any of our instructors for individual rates and schedules.
