Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art self defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. BJJ promotes that a smaller, weaker person can defend against a bigger stronger assailant by using proper technique and leverage.

Our programs start at approximately 7 years of age and extend until 12 years of age.  13+ kids may take the adult classes.
