Classes will start from Monday 8 May and take place during term times and half term holidays.
We’ll also be arranging a Summer Camp so please watch this space for further details!
Sessions are for 4-7 year olds and 8-13 year olds and are friendly and educational. They give children the chance to make new friends and learn new skills. They also see the importance of working with others and respecting fellow students’ needs and abilities.
Each lesson starts with a warm up consisting of a mix of stretching (to improve flexibility) and some cardio exercises. Depending on students’ ages and abilities we then cover basic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu moves and, for older ones, look at how certain combinations are put together.
These lessons are specifically designed for children in order to develop their confidence, self esteem, balance, concentration, co-operation, co-ordination and, of course, fitness.
Sessions are a great addition to any child’s education and we hope that what they learn here will positively impact other areas of their lives. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch the lessons and see what progress is being made.
Sessions are led by Marcelo who is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and has many years experience of teaching children and young people.
Children normally train with a gi which, as you can see from our BJJ photos, is a two piece judo-like suit and belt.
If they are new to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and don’t have a gi, then it’s ok to train in thin, flexible tracksuit bottoms or shorts and a t-shirt for the first few classes.
