Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 

“There is no losing in Jiu-Jitsu. You either win or you learn.”       – Carlos Gracie Jr.

Our kids kickboxing program is unlike any other. UFC fighter and coach Alex Morono teaches the children technical, applicable kickboxing techniques for self defense and competition. It’s a ring tested blend of defensive kickboxing, Muay Thai and boxing. They learn the importance of distancing, movement, and defense, all while having fun and exercising.

Kickboxing can be an intimidating sport to get into, understandably, so coach Alex constantly makes sure the kids are having fun and never go too hard. There are 3 main focuses when practicing. Have fun, use good technique and most important, take care of your training partners.  If you or your child is interested in competition you’re in good hands. in 2015 the GBTW kids kickboxing team went 6-0. The break down of techniques and realistic training makes for very confident and effective styles for our kids.

Watch your child develop their physical abilities, fitness and mental focus while making new friends and having fun learning exciting new skills that boost their overall confidence. Our instructors know how to keep children involved and excited about the martial arts and provide training in a safe and controlled environment.

During your child’s free introductory class he/she will be introduced to the effective defensive style og kickboxing by working directly with our professional and experienced coaches.

What makes BJJ different from other Martial Arts?

Unlike other forms of martial arts that focus on fancy punches, kicks and flips, BJJ focuses on self-defense techniques that provide real practical value when your child may find themselves in dangerous situations. Jiu Jitsu is translated as “the gentle art,” it focuses on using strength and technique in the most efficient way possible to control and overcome opponents of greater size and strength thus making BJJ the perfect martial art choice for children.
