Physical fitness
Proper physical fitness is vital to establishing a well-balanced lifestyle. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a fun and positive environment to achieve this while improving coordination, motor skills, agility and flexibility. Even more so, your child will be participating in a sport in which he or she will be challenged, will have fun, and can build lasting friendships! The objective is never to promote or glorify violence, but to provide your child with a sense of courage and confidence through the establishment of a proper self-defense repertoire. By doing this, they naturally develop a drive and determination that carries over into all facets of their lives.

Advance Jiu-jitsu:
Once beginner students have established the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, they may start to attend advanced classes should they desire to progress to the next level. The advanced classes provide the opportunity for students to study much more complex techniques geared towards an martial arts form known as “sport Jiu Jistu”.
