We are pleased to announce the start of our kids BJJ classes on monday afternoons at 3.45pm. The classes will be taught by Coach Nick and Coach Amy, initially for ages 6-9 years. In the very near future we will be looking to start ages 10-13 and 14-17 years.
Our kids classes follow a great programme as approved by Kevin Capel of Roger Gracie Academy. The classes concentrate on mixing fun with technique, with unique warm up drills, conceptual movements, sport specific games and of course BJJ technique.
Students will learn to develop self awareness, self confidence, self discipline whilst working on their fitness and combat skills.
BJJ is a martial art stemming from Judo, we look at takedowns, positional control on the ground through grappling and joint locks. The emphasis whilst learning this is to create a fun and safe environment.
Classes will cost £4 and last 45 minutes, kids will need to wear t-shirt and shorts or jogging bottoms but eventually will need their own Gi and belt in order to progress through the ranking system.
