A rough summer holiday required an unexpected and immediate relocation. While your older daughter took the move in stride, your son struggles. His apparent unhappiness has only amplified since school started. He wonít say anything, but you suspect heís being bullied. Quiet and small for his age, you want to supplement his formal education with a fortifying extra-curricular activity that teaches self-defence and builds his confidence.
Your childís strength and perseverance are reliant on a foundation of strong values and character virtues. These can be developed through discipline, mindfulness, patience, and confidence. Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Central Coast is the largest and most competitively successful teams in Australia. We take a family-style approach to whole-body enrichment through progress-oriented jiu jitsu classes for children.
Enrichment Through Jiu Jitsu for Children
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a form of mixed martial arts (MMA) that uses body positioning and balance, to create leverage. This leverage is then used to manipulate the opponent, usually through holding techniques performed on the ground. Itís seated between the performative (but not particularly street-practical) elements of Karate and its cousin, Japanese Jiu Jitsu (Judo), which incorporates more hits and throws.
We follow the Gracie Berra Kids Program designed for children 3-15. Benefits from this tailor-made Jiu Jitsu for children program include better focus and concentration, increased perseverance, self-confidence, and improved discipline both on the mat and in their regular lives. A pro-social environment, theyíll learn from the example of passionate peers, many of whom have successfully competed at the national and international level.
Kids 3-9 are separated into our two Little Champions classes while youths 10 and up have their own class which is better suited for their size and social level. Age-appropriate class divisions facilitate better matches when teaching Jiu Jitsu self defence for children. All children are provided instruction on proper technique and how to practically use Jiu Jitsu for self defence.
