Are you looking for an extra-curricular program for your child that creates value, discipline and confidence? You have found the right place! Gracie Gym has a focused Kids program for children ages 3 and up. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is far more practical than taekwondo or karate in that it teaches children to defend themselves from the ground, even if they are in a compromised position. Every class at Gracie Gym consists of physical exercise, self-defense techniques and education on the art of Jiu Jitsu. Your child will grow in their coordination, agility and flexibility. Gracie Gym will become a safe place for your child to socialize, build consistency, respect authority and learn to defend themselves.
Anti-Bullying Gracie Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu jitsu has become a practical and an advanced self-defense art especially for anti-bullying purposes. Unlike other martial arts that teach primarily striking to defends one’s self, Jiu jitsu teaches how to deescalate and if need be gain an advantageous position to protect one’s self and minimize significant injury even to the alleged bully.
