We specialise in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes for children aged 8 years and up of all fitness and skill levels. Your child will gain so much more that just martial arts skills in our classes.
In our safe, enjoyable classes, your child will have the opportunity to develop the skills required to build a successful, fulfilling life. We do this by focusing on three key areas:
As I’m sure you’re aware martial arts classes are an excellent form of exercise and will provide a positive outlet for your child’s energy. Through training in our classes your child will become stronger, healthier, more flexible, and improve their coordination.
But that’s not all. They’ll also learn about the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle. This type of education during childhood, is essential to maintaining health and fitness throughout their lives.
Through training in our classes, your child will become more confident, focused, self-disciplined, & polite. These are important qualities that are essential for success in life.
To ensure we have a dedicated life skills development programme that’s available to all our junior students free of charge. It covers area’s like Discipline, Making Friends, and Focus.
On top of this, we also teach your child about important topics such as stranger danger, dealing with negative peer pressure, and fire safety.
BJJ Plymouth is the only martial arts academy in Plymouth that is a registered learning provider for the Children’s University.
We are also part of ASDA’s Sporting Chance, Change For Life, and The Plymouth Safe Sound Charter.
In a Jiu Jitsu class you’d expect your child to learn effective martial arts skills, and they will. Your child tried and test techniques that could be used for self defense if they ever need them. But, hopefully, that will NEVER happen.
These are not watered down techniques; they’re the same techniques our adult students learn but taught in a more appropriate way and at a more appropriate pace.
Importantly, we will also teach your child to defend against negative peer pressure, and unhealthy outside influences, which can be detrimental to your child’s well-being.
One of the unique things about our Academy is our training atmosphere. You won’t find any boring, repetitive classes here.
We went your child to leave with a smile on face, as it’s by far the best way for your child to learn and keep training. We do this by avoiding stuffy formalities and engaging the children in a way best suited to them.
We want your child to feel like their training is a game, a very enjoyable game, and Jiu Jitsu is the perfect martial art for this. After all, the longer your child trains, the more benefits they will get.
Competition can be a great tool for your child’s development as it will teach them about goal setting, controlling their nerves, and many other important qualities. However, it is not for everyone, and we will NEVER force your child to compete.
If your child does to compete then, our instructors have a wealth of competition experience and will guide and support them towards success.
