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. 

Program Emphasis:

  • 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.
