Our children's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and mixed martial arts (MMA) program is subdivided into two different age groups to provide a more specialized learning experience for students of different ages and development.
We work to give children the tools they need to suceed by focusing on four main areas:
1.) Character Development 2.) Fitness 3.) Technical Insturction 4.) Fun!
"Every parent wants their child to know how to defend themself, but hopefully never have to."
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is the base of our Kids MMA program because it has been tried and tested in martial arts tournaments such as the UFC for decades. Violence is taught to be avoided at all costs, and minimized when necessary. In an ever-growing world of lawsuits and zero-tolerance policies, we understand the need to equip our children with the right tools to defend themselves. Why teach them brutal, destructive techniques that can’t be trained full force, when Jiu-Jitsu is safer and more effective anyway?
Your child may develop many excellant skills including math, science, English, and critical thinking. However, these skills often go to waste without the proper attitude and mindset to enable your child to harness his or her skills and therefore reach full potential. Even worse, a child may never develop skills which they are naturally inclined to excel in. Our martial arts program for children will help your child develop the following character traits to have a winning attitude.
Children sometimes struggle with self-confidence and need an environment to build it in. OC Jiu-Jitsu is a great place for your child to build self-confidence in a family environment. Your child will learn to continually set and accomplish new goals while simultaneously learning to interact with other children. All goals will be set at your child’s own pace and our staff will work with your child individually in order to ensure that he or she will reach them.
Our kids program is taught by former United States Marines and incorporates a mix customs and courtesies used by the United States Marine Corps and ancient martial arts such as Judo and Jiu-Jitsu.
Learning mixed martial arts (MMA) will also help your child learn to focus and to develop their listening and directional skills. The skills your child will learn in our mixed martial arts (MMA) and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) program will easily transition into their academic and classroom skills, helping them to become more successful students.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and mixed martial arts (MMA) will develop your child’s self-discipline, teaching them the value of hard work and the rewards of constant perseverance.
Mixed martial arts (MMA) and BJJ develop a child’s entire body in many different ways; agility, strength, balance, speed, and cardiovascular benefits will be fortified within your child. As a parent, you will be amazed with the results you will begin to see in a short period of time.
