When it comes to self defense, BJJ empowers a smaller individual to fight against a larger opponent. But the advantages don’t stop there. BJJ helps kids gain confidence, learn discipline, focus their energy, foster respect for others, and be a part of a one-of-a-kind community full of future friends and mentors!
Eaton Jiu-Jitsu Academy Youth Programs Ages 4+
If your child is excited to wear that “cool martial arts gear,” be sure to sign them up for Gi Jiu Jitsu! Unlike No-Gi BJJ, those practicing Gi BJJ wear a kimono, pants, and a belt denoting their skill level. But don’t be fooled – the clothes aren’t just for looks! In Gi Jiu-Jitsu you can grab your opponent’s kimono during grappling. This style has a slower pace that allows for more time to think through each move.
Teaches Hard Work
Don’t get us wrong, BJJ is a ton of fun…but it’s also hard work! We want our students to learn from a young age what it means to keep trying even when you get tired or can’t get the hang of a technique right away. There’s nothing more rewarding than setting a goal for yourself and finally accomplishing it! Whether it’s earning your orange belt, breaking a board, or learning a cool new technique, our team is here to get you there.
Eaton Jiu-Jitsu Academy is dedicated to empowering you with the confidence and self-esteem needed to succeed in everyday life. Jiu-Jitsu can bring out the positive qualities that have always been a part of you, whether that is inner calm, positive mental attitude, patience, or self-discipline. Jiu-Jitsu training will help you overcome fear, anger, and self-doubt, and leave you feeling confident in any situation.
A huge part of what makes BJJ so great is that it doesn’t just strengthen the body, it strengthens the mind as well. Many parents worry that Jiu-Jitsu won’t be the right fit for their child because he or she has a lot of energy. But this couldn’t be further from the truth! At Eaton Jiu-Jitsu Academy, we want our students to be energetic and excited when they come to class – our goal is simply to focus that energy. After a long day sitting at a desk, kids need a place to let loose. Our BJJ curriculum aims to take all that pent up energy and direct it into throws, blows, and a wide variety of fun activities.
