YOUTH ages 7-14
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.
