Jiu Jitsu Kids
Jiu Jitsu Kids is beneficial for both boys and girls. Jiu Jitsu helps children become more focused and disciplined by gaining their attention to teach proper techniques and teaching respect for higher rankings as well as their instructors. Jiu Jitsu focuses on relationship building by encouraging a 'team' feeling in the gym. Students encourage and help each other throughout class. Non-aggressive conflict resolution is a benefit of martial arts as a whole. Although the students are taught the fundamentals of self defense, they become calmer through exercise and movement, thus becoming better at avoiding and preventing altercations in the first place.
Fundamentals classes are essential for the beginner Jiu Jitsu player as well as anyone that is focused on perfecting their Jiu Jitsu game. The classes focus on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu theory, principles, basic technique, body mechanics, and self-defense. A Gi is required.
Advanced classes are for the student that has mastered the foundational skills of body awareness, body mechanics and self-defense. It is important for this student to be fluent in techniques as well as have a strong offensive and defensive game. It is in the advanced classes that students can expand their Jiu Jitsu repertoire and put together a more technical flow. A Gi is required.
No Gi Jiu Jitsu is not specific to Fundamental or Advanced learners. No Gi Jiu Jitsu is a type of clinch/ground fighting that focuses on grips, leverage, momentum, balance, weight transmission, and pressure. Shorts and a rash guard are required.
