customized on premises programs
Because of its instinctive movements, playful game-like qualities, and efficiency as a form of self defense, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the fastest growing martial art and competetive sport in the world. Aside from a multitude of physical and practical benefits, the psychological and self development aspects are immeasurably valuable. Additionally, the complete absence of kicking and punching make it safe to practice daily for kids of all ages.

why Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
BJJ philosophy places major value on perseverance, resilience and individual development while working in a team, remaining calm under pressure and self-awareness.
In addition to being a complete self defense system, BJJ builds the mind and character which improves confidence in all areas of life. BJJ was developed to allow a smaller, weaker opponent to defeat a larger, stronger, more aggressive opponent through technique as well as intelligent and strategic problem solving. Using principles of physics and building on character traits such as patience, humility, creativity and confidence, the smaller individual can turn their opponent’s strengths against them to immobilize them. Losing is welcomed in BJJ because of the opportunity for learning it provides.
Using energy efficiently, which entails the maintenance of a healthy diet and lifestyle, as well as the mindful patience to fight strategically, are key BJJ principles. The ability to push through discomfort and frustration, being highly adaptable and learning to constructively process perceived failure are some of the most desirable qualities developed by individuals who practice BJJ regularly.

Safety & Bullying: Our Approach
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.
In order to optimize learning and ensure safety standards, we opt to build relationships with a smaller group of kids each cycle. This allows us to develop and maintain high behavioral standards. Following instructions and self control are required in order for each student to participate. We have found that enforcing these standards fosters a sense of pride in demonstrating these characteristics among students.
This sport is practiced exclusively when both parties are in uniform as well as in class. We also look to establish open communication with parents and teachers in order to ensure these standards are upheld.
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.

For a variety of reasons a uniform is mandatory for all of our kids program. Not only is it an active tool in the actual playing of the sport, but it draws a clear line in the child’s mind of when where and how BJJ is used:
In class supervised by a BJJ coach (also in uniform),
With TEAMMATES who also do BJJ
While wearing a uniform
