Our GBK – Juniors Program is for kids aged 10-15 years.
Get your kids off the screens and into a worthwhile pass time. We know for some of you this will be no simple task. If you do, we can promise you that the 2-3 hours a week they spend at our school will benefit them in many ways.
Today’s children are faced with many challenges in life from bullying to an unhealthy lifestyle. Jiu-Jitsu classes can be a way for parents to expose their children to an invaluable education (both physical and mental) that sets the basis for their personal growth.
The art of Jiu-Jitsu teaches so many life lessons to children. Focus, discipline and kids fitness are just a few. We strongly believe that with the GB Kids program kids can:
- Improve social skills and enhance self-confidence
- Learn a better understanding of goal-setting and achieving
- Increase focus, energy and concentration
- Learn the Gracie Barra Self-Defence System
- Enjoy significant gains in overall fitness and flexibility levels
- Learn how to respect, interact and bond with their training partners
- Learn how to win and lose in a safe environment
- Learn how to stop bullying since the start
- Train in over 800 schools worldwide
- And most importantly, they will learn how to fight, so they never have to fight
All GB Schools are supervised by a Gracie Barra certified instructor, who supports students and helps each one achieve their full potential through challenging training programs. Each class is customised to offer maximum benefit for our students.
Our Kids Program was carefully designed gathering the experience of more than 20 Gracie Barra black belt instructors teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for kids. It is built to teach kids effective self-defence techniques, improve their physical qualities, stimulate bonding with other kids, and develop their character by applying the lessons they learn on the mats on their daily lives. Our program builds self-confidence, discipline, respect and teaches how to stop bullying since young.
THE TRAINING ENVIRONMENT
The first time you come to our school our staff will welcome you. Please arrive 15 minutes before class so you and your child have enough time to prepare for training. The class will start on time and your child will be asked to walk to the training area where the instructor will be waiting for him or her.
One of the assistant instructors or a senior student will be assigned as a helper to assist your child in performing BJJ drills and activities. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch the entire training.
