kids PROGRAM

Click here for TEENS

Why not enroll your kid in a program where not only are they encouraged to practice failure, but where they learn how to use "failure" as a valuable tool in their ultimate success? The people who are scared to lose or fail are often the same ones who lack the confidence to pursue their goals and dreams in life, the same individuals who don't reach their full potential.

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, 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.  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.

We at 4Points believe it is important not to run from discomfort but to conquer it, and our youth programs are founded on this. Through the encouraged development of a healthy competitive mindset and competition skills (ie: preparation, winning mindset, self evaluation, goal setting) our students develop the qualities they will later use to pursue their dream jobs and opportunities in life.

OUR CURRICULUM

At 4PBJJ we use curriculum based programming for all our classes. Every class is either 1 or 1.5hrs and is split into 2 parts: 
Technique: Review and fine tuning of various moves from the curriculum.
Rolling: an attempt to impose the previously reviewed techniques on a resisting opponent, for the purpose of offensive or defensive practice in real time. Also referred to as "sparring".

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 experience and your ability to apply that to future efforts that is important.

NO COMMITMENT - no equipment - no excuses

Ages:4-7

These classes are open to all kids and teens ages 5 and up, however the Thursday class is tailored for kids 4-7 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 as opposed to performance.

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

AGES 8-11

These classes are open to all kids and teens 8 and up, however the Monday and Wednesday classes are tailored for kids ages 8 to 11 with or without experience. These classes focus on developing critical thinking skills, self confidence, emotional and physical resilience, a 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 and leadership skills or earn volunteer hours. They may also use the space to work on their own curriculum should they wish to add hours to their own training.
