About the program
What does it take to be a champion? Can a martial art support a parent’s education?
To excel in any endeavour, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that gives them the perseverance to achieve his or her goals. The Gracie Barra Kids Program was created to provide children ages 3-14 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation, and respect.
As a contact sport, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature towards a real-life champion. The outcome of continued childhood practice of BJJ goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carry over to the child’s behaviour at home and school.
Our Kids Jiu Jitsu Program is typically subdivided into 4 different groups to accommodate students of various ages and skill levels:
- Tiny champion (3-6 years old)
- GBK 1 (6-7 years old)
- GBK 2 (7-10 years old)
- GBK 3 (11-14 years old)
