Our youth programs are headed by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt James Bruchac and Judo black belt Mark Hatton.
||Kids Jiu Jitsu (ages 6-12)|
Our kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program focuses on the same fundamental techniques found in our adult program with an emphasis on learning to escape from bad positions on the ground and to control someone so they can not hurt you or themselves. As a competitive sport we also focus on the application of and escape from various submission holds. We focus on aspects which will best help improve dexterity, balance and self-esteem.
