Kids' Jiu-Jitsu & Bully Prevention (8-13Y)
At Matteo BJJ, we believe that the practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a means to both individual development, and growth within one's community. Physical and emotional strength, confidence, self-awareness, respect, discipline and responsibility are critical core values taught within our kid’s curriculum. The program is structured to teach skills and technique through the utilization of complimentary functional games that are aimed at improving your child’s comprehension, agility and flexibility in a fun, friendly and interactive envrionment.
The Bully Prevention portion of each class focuses on managing the essential self defense techniques in order to equip each student with the overall skills needed if physically attacked by a bully. These techniques provide our students with the confidence to remain prepared if they find it absolutely necessary to defend themselves, and the social skills needed to make physicality their last resort.
Kids' Jiu-Jitsu (5- 7Y)
For our 5-7 kids, we continue focusing on their fundamentals, as well as building on their toolbox of techniques. We introduce drills, positional sparring, and limited live rolling, so they learn how to apply what they’ve learned in more realistic scenarios.
"Get your Kids in the gym. They will have to find solutions to problems on the mats. Those skills of overcoming adversity will stick with them" - Tim Kennedy
