Why Train Jiu-Jitsu?
The benefits of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu extend beyond the education and ranking in a Martial Arts system. With accomplished leaders to mentor the student’s, children experience the joy of being an individual contributing to a team environment.
Our classes are designed to expose developing minds and bodies to the importance of: direction following, remaining calm under pressure, commitment, working through cause and effect situations, respect for others, problem solving skills, humility, and multi-tasking abilities.
Warrior spirits and better attention spans are created by weekly training challenges. Student’s are taught the values of honor, courage, loyalty, respect and the importance of health and wellness. the attitude and grade improvements outside of class are another added benefit.
Children are ranked in a belt system (white, yellow, orange, green, and blue) and within these belts they will earn degrees (3 degrees per belt.) The belt system teaches them about setting long-term goals (becomming a black belt) and short term ones, such as being able to execute a new technique they learned in class, or acheiving their next degree or belt.
The student must actually earn their rank at our academy, we do not run a “belt factory” like many commercialized martial arts schools do.
