Our Youth Director World Champion Ayisha Issa giving out instructions for the day.

Enroll your kids in a program where they learn how to view failure and adversity as a valuable tool in their long term success.

Our youth are encouraged, not only to be proactive in regards to their own training, but to help each other improve through sharing what they have learned with newer students. 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 youth valuable life skills such as perseverance and positive leadership while inspiring them to be the best versions of themselves in class and in life.

In class, they are encouraged to challenge themselves and each other by testing and expanding their abilities in a safe and controlled environment. We foster a healthy relationship with competition by keeping the focus on preparation, consistency, focus, self evaluation and goal setting. As a result, your child develop the qualities they will later use to pursue their dream jobs and opportunities in life. Our students look forward to coming to class where they build confidence, grow stronger, become leaders and form healthy bonds and relationships with one another based on mutual respect and support.


Ages:4-6

This class is tailored for kids 4-6 years old who are new and working towards their first stripe. We aim to build the focus and discipline required to become successful learners while building the required physical and athletic skills needed for most sports. Agility, body mechanics, spacial awareness, reflexes, flexibility, strength, endurance and mental/physical resilience are all cultivated in this class. Kids in this program quickly learn to follow instructions and are celebrated for their efforts and tenacity.

Teens are also encouraged to join this class if they wish to develop coaching, leadership skills or even earn volunteer hours. They may also use the space to work on their own curriculum should they wish to add hours to their training.


AGES 7-11

These classes are tailored for kids ages 7 to 11, with or without experience. These classes focus on developing critical thinking skills, self confidence, emotional and physical resilience, work ethic and autonomy through the learning and application of complex Brazilian jiu jitsu techniques and principles. Our kids can not only demonstrate several of these detailed techniques within a few months, but kids as young as 8 are able to lead a group of their peers with confidence and skill. The focus of this program is to develop the characteristics required for long term success on and off the mats.

Teens are also encouraged to join this class if they wish to develop coaching, leadership skills or even earn volunteer hours. They may also use the space to work on their own curriculum should they wish to add hours to their training.


OUR CURRICULUM

At 4PBJJ we use curriculum based programming for all our classes. Every class is between 45mins and 1.5h. Classes are split into 2 parts: 
Technique: Review and fine tuning of various moves from the curriculum.
Rolling: Also referred to as "sparring". This is an attempt to impose the previously reviewed techniques on a resisting opponent for the purpose of offensive or defensive practice in real time.

Competition: While competition is not mandatory, as our students develop a stronger sense of resilience and self esteem, most eventually choose to set goals of competing in local tournaments on their own. They come to understand that the value in competition is what you learn from the actual experience as well as your ability to apply that knowledge to future efforts in their lives.
