Kids Classes

Helping your child to develop:

  • Confidence

    Lachlan was a shy kid. After two years of BJJ, he was the head boy and captain of his football team. The confidence you develop through BJJ follows you into the rest of your life.

  • Coordination

    BJJ builds balance, strength and core motor skills. Movement skills are a part of healthy development.

  • Empathy and sense of fair play

    Your child will be wrestling with bigger and smaller children, and will learn to find the balance between always winning and letting the smaller child win sometimes.

  • Resilience

    BJJ teaches your child to cope with minor bumps and knocks, how to lose graciously and have the perseverance to try again.

  • Self discipline

    Getting good at anything requires dedication and perseverance. BJJ builds the self discipline to deal with the ups and the downs of life.

Ages

The kids’ classes are for 7 to 12 year olds. We do occasionally accept 6 year olds on a case-by-case basis, so contact us for details.

Bonus Muay Thai classes

As well as the BJJ classes, we also provide kids Muay Thai/MMA classes at no extra cost.

A big thanks to Slade Hutcheson of Centurion MMA for offering this.

Frequently asked questions

What are the uniform requirements?

Kids train in shorts and rashguards. T-shirts are okay in the beginning, but they should be tight to avoid catching fingers.

How many classes a week can my child attend?

Your child can attend any or all classes. The more classes they attend, the faster they’ll improve.

Can the parents watch the classes?

Of course! We encourage the parents to sit on the side of the mat so they can watch their child train up and close.

There are many small, subtle details in BJJ, so being close makes it easier for you to see your child improve.

Are there competitions?

Yes, we compete in the BJJ4Life competitions held by Adam Metcalf.

Can I photograph or video my child?

Yes. Several of the more advanced kids get their parents to video their training so they can watch it later to debrief what happened.
