Children's BJJ Club

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu also known as BJJ, was popularised by the Gracie family in Rio de Janeiro. Developed as a self defence based martial art, it specialises in ground based positions and submissions. The principle of the art is to avoid strikes when standing and to take the fight you’ve been forced into, to the ground. Here, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners practice to defeat the aggressor with the use of minimal force.

 

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gives a person a better chance of surviving should they find themselves in a one on one confrontation where they have been forced to the ground, against their will. We teach standing headlock defences and a multitude of other standing self defence techniques that have been developed by the Gracie family, in Brazil.


Techniques are based on leverage giving smaller, weaker people a chance against those that are stronger and heavier. This makes BJJ ideal as a martial art because everybody regardless of size, has an improved chance of survival because the system is not entirely based around strength.

Beyond self defence, BJJ is also now a very popular combat sport. At the Lifestyle Team in Kingston, we focus on self defence but enjoy the sporting aspects of BJJ, too.

Children learning BJJ benefit in lots of ways - in addition to the obvious benefits of good health, discipline, practical self defence skills and friendship - your child will become more athletic and agile, gain better body awareness, improve balance and flexibility, make new friends and have lots of fun.

Still not convinced?

Perhaps these two recent reviews written by parents will be what prompts you to start your child on their own Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey!

"My daughter has been going now for a year, I have just enrolled my son too. The teaching is spot on, the hall is very spacious, the prices are good too but perhaps the best and most unique thing about this club is that it feels like a family. Genuinely. Even when the burly adults turn up at the end of the kids class to start their own, they watch them and encourage them along. Everyone treats each other with great respect. It’s quite special and the reason I want to enrol too!"
