Kids BJJ

About our Kids Program

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers a unique and enriching experience that goes beyond just martial arts. Team Moreira- Los Osos offers classes for kids from ages 3 to 14.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling-based martial art that emphasizes technique, leverage, and strategy over brute strength. It provides a safe and empowering environment for kids to learn essential life skills while having fun and staying active. Here's why you should consider enrolling your child in our BJJ program:

  1. Confidence and Discipline: Through structured training sessions, children develop discipline and focus. Learning and mastering techniques in a supportive environment helps build confidence, not only in their physical abilities but also in their overall approach to challenges.

  2. Self-Defense Skills: BJJ is a highly effective self-defense system that teaches kids how to protect themselves in real-world situations. By understanding the principles of leverage and control, children learn to neutralize threats without relying on striking or violence.

  3. Physical Fitness: Our BJJ program promotes a healthy and active lifestyle. Kids engage in dynamic exercises and drills that improve their flexibility, strength, and cardiovascular fitness. It's a great way for them to stay fit while having a blast on the mats.

  4. Problem-Solving and Critical Thinking: BJJ is often referred to as "human chess" because of its strategic nature. Kids learn to think on their feet, anticipate their opponent's moves, and develop problem-solving skills that extend beyond the mat.

  5. Respect and Sportsmanship: Our BJJ community emphasizes respect for oneself and others. Children learn the importance of good sportsmanship, teamwork, and treating their training partners with kindness and consideration.

  6. Positive Social Environment: Our academy provides a supportive and positive social environment. Kids make friends, build camaraderie, and learn the value of teamwork – essential skills that contribute to their overall social development.

  7. Lifelong Lessons: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instills values that extend beyond the academy. Kids carry the lessons of discipline, perseverance, and respect with them into their everyday lives, setting a foundation for lifelong success.

Join us on the journey of helping your child discover the incredible world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu – a martial art that not only equips them with valuable self-defense skills but also nurtures their physical, mental, and social well-being. Enroll your child today and watch them grow into confident, disciplined, and resilient individuals!
