YOUTH ages 7-13
Our YOUTH Program introduces students to all of the fundamental positions in Jiu Jitsu - Stand-up, Guard, Side Control, Mount Control, and Back Control. An emphasis is put on how to piece together several concepts of Jiu Jitsu in order to advance a position. As students progress through the curriculum, more advanced techniques like specialized guards and more dynamic guard passes are introduced.
In addition to basic Jiu Jitsu positions, students learn side control, back control, and more importantly, escapes and reversals.
Students are introduced to basic submissions such as arm locks.
In this age group, students develop left & right symmetry, gross and fine motor skills, flexibility, and fundamental Jiu Jitsu and self-defense strategy.
Students continue their social development, have fun playing Jiu Jitsu-related games, and learn basic physical fitness.
As Students become more experienced, they learn more advanced submissions, self-defense and anti-bullying (including proper verbal self-defense, avoidance, and de-escalation) techniques. Submissions include the triangle submission, kimuras, and chokes. Students will continue to refine their techniques, working on subtle fine motor skills, body awareness, weight distribution, and breath control.
