Our TEENS Program is refined for students in their mid to late adolescent years. Students in this age group, for all intents and purposes, train Jiu Jitsu as young adults with the accompanying expectations and responsibilities.
- Students train judo and wrestling takedowns and takedown defense (excellent for self-defense skills), attaining and maintaining positional control, and advanced arm locks, shoulder locks, and shime-waza (chokes).
- TEENS begin to develop “a game” or personal Jiu Jitsu style that is encouraged, advanced, and customized by Dojo instructors.
- They also work on match strategy, submission set ups and traps, and speed and strength training.
- A major emphasis is placed on kinesthetic awareness, tactile sensitivity, and the use of body leverage.
