Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: 13 and Under

Like our other classes, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program utilizes a unique curriculum that combines traditional and tournament jiu-jitsu with also freestyle, folkstyle, catch wrestling, judo, and mixed martial arts grappling techniques. Torres’ unique approach to training exposed him to a variety of devastating positions and submission techniques that are usually not taught anymore. He realized at a young age that in the real world, the most effective techniques include but are not limited to just the traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu approach.

Grappling against bigger training partners and fighting in open weight classes early in his career meant Torres couldn't rely on his size or strength but has to use the content of his knowledge and potency of his technique -creating a technical approach to drive success in a world that, at the time, was not meant for thinner and smaller males.

What Will I Learn?

Students have two types of classes they can participate in, the first being a beginners class that teaches the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a safe environment and allows students to learn conscious breathing, the basics of grappling teaching them how to properly fall, technical get ups, hip escapes, various transitions of control positions, Judo takedowns, fundamentals of wrestling, basic submission and self-defense techniques. This type of training also gives students increased confidence, core strength building muscle and conditioning. There is no sparring in the fundamentals program to keep students injury-free and to give them an opportunity to build the confidence to work up to live rolling.

Advanced students are allowed to spar and work on advanced combinations of attacks and positions, this class is designed for students who want to compete in tournaments or who aspire to be involved in mixed martial arts as they grow older. The advanced classes offer the same benefits of the fundamentals program with the added benefit of live sparring, giving kids an increased awareness of the usefulness of Brazilan Jiu-JItsu and grappling in self-defense scenarios as well as competitions.

What Will I Get?

What Do I Need?

We teach two forms of grappling, gi and nogi. Half the week is divided into training with a traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Kimono and the other half is trained with a t-shirt, rashguard, shorts or spats. All shorts and pants should not have any pockets, zippers, buttons or cuts in the legs and no jewelry is allowed to be worn during classes. Shirts / tops should fit comfortably and not have excess length or bulk. Students that do not have a Jiu-Jitsu kimono or forget to bring it can rent one and all students must have their own uniform with belt for gi days.
