Over time kids will develop skills to move up to the adults class. Kids will acquire skills for life that will serve them well. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu kids classes focus on balance, posture, co-ordination and body position. Kids are taught take downs, passes and escapes. Kids under the age of 8 are never taught submission and older children are never taught techniques that could be dangerous if not executed responsibly. Enrol your child today and give them confidence that will help them grow into healthy and happy adults.
