fun, effective training is our approach to teaching children’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in our Reno academy. Classes are structured to constantly engage kids and teens in the learning process – without overwhelming them with information. Each 45-minute class is an appropriate, entertaining mix of drills and games to reinforce learned techniques and encourage cooperation and communication.
As a developmental activity, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotes mental clarity and strength, respect, discipline and character, and that applies for children and adults alike. It’s also an amazing way to build lasting friendships. In keeping with the philosophy of Guerrilla Jiu Jitsu, our curriculum teaches self defense and addresses the issue of bullying with verbal and physical de-escalation techniques intended to stop a bullying situation in its tracks. Students are also empowered to determine their own success by learning to take responsibility for themselves and their actions.
Kids learn to focus, pay attention to detail, think critically and practice respect – skills that serve them on and off the mats, at home and in school.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Our Reno children’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program is designed for both boys and girls, with separate class times offered for kids ages 5 to 10 and 11 to 15. No experience is necessary, and everyone is welcome. Classes run 45 minutes and incorporate demonstrations, drilling, games and live rolling.
