About the program:

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a very practical and comprehensive ground fighting system invented in Brazil and now gaining popularity around the world. Brazilian jiu-jitsu emphasizes "technique over strength" and not anger or aggression.

Children learning jiu jitsu will gain valuable self defense skills, and additionaly increased discipline and confidence, physical fitness, self esteem and focus. Jiu jitsu can help kids deal with stressful situations without getting emotional and can position them not only become great achievers in martial arts, but in every aspect of life.

In a safe and nurturing environment, Street Sports kids learn how to deal with punches, kicks and other wrestling holds by using their opponents weight and momentum to their advantage. They will also learn how to gain advantageous positions using throws, take-downs and other wrestling-like controls. Children that learn jiu jitsu will be able to defend themselves in real world self defense situations even against much larger opponents.

If you have a child between the ages 8 and 13 or a teenager, stop in for a free introductory class!
