Gravity BJJ offers an exceptional martial arts children’s program in a fun, friendly and encouraging atmosphere. Unlike other programs, our program uses a dual approach to self defence: protection from standing attacks and from ground attacks. The Kickboxing Program focuses on standing self-defence in a safe environment and is considered a ‘hard’ martial art because it teaches striking (punching), blocking and kicking. To compliment this aggressive side of our program, we have the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program, which is a ‘soft’ martial art centered on ground defence. From this program, children are taught how to move on the ground and control their attacker through body positions. This unique combination of ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ martial arts will enable children to protect themselves from all angles and all situations. In addition, our unique warm up exercises will develop their athletic abilities, body awareness and concentration. Each class consists of warm up exercises, skill building and stretching.
Because children learn better when taught in focused sessions, the kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are offered on alternating days.
Our children’s program is founded on respect for oneself and others. We help children to be confident and calm in stressful situations through self control and consciousness of their actions.
