Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the ideal method of self-defense for kids because it emphasizes leverage and technique over strength and power.  Smaller people have the ability to overcome bigger stronger aggressors.

Those who are excepted into our Academy will have the privilege of becomming part of the Gracie Family Lineage, right from the source! We follow Master Relson Gracie’s guidelines for ranking and he will even be present for many promotions.

Every child learns each lesson plan regardless of their size, experience, or athletic ability.  Class is held in a positive, fun environment.  Children look forward to class and being a part of a team.

ANTI – BULLYING

On average, an estimated 160,000 student’s in the United States refuse to attend school because they dread the physical and verbal aggression from their peers.

Our instructors constantly stress the value of when to use their skills; For self-defense, or in competition only.  Over time, Children will gain self-esteem and exhibit confidence with their new jiu-jitsu techniques.  Children who have high self-esteem have the confidence to stand up for themselves, and are more apt to help others.

We DO NOT teach a false sense of security like many academies do; Student’s rapidly learn how to handle themselves in any situation.

We teach our student’s the importance of sportsmanlike conduct: In the Academy, at tournaments, and at any other extra-curricular activities they may attend.  We work as a team, teaching children how to work well with one another , and develop long lasting friendships.
