Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu kids Class - Option 3

Jr. Champions Program Ages 8-15


What will my child learn and how will that translate into life outside of the academy?

Learning the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsus is more than learning self-defense it is gaining the understanding of what is means to have discipline and respect.

To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that gives them perseverance to achieve his or her goals. The Ground Control Jr. Champions’ Program was created to provide children ages 8-15 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect.

Ground Control Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature towards becoming a real life champion. The outcome of continued childhood practice of Ground Control Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu goes far beyond the accomplishments they achieve on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behavior at home and at school.

There is no losing in Jiu-Jitsu. You either win or you learn. – Carlos Gracie Jr.
