TEACHING RESPECT, SELF-DISCIPLINE, FOCUS AND SELF CONFIDENCE THROUGH MARTIAL ARTS!

Our youth programs are the building blocks for the next generation. These classes not only teach children ages 4 and up how to realistically defend themselves, but also focus on life skill development. It is a great way to get in shape, make friends, and have fun. This program instills strong work ethic, focus and grit. Classes include techniques, physical drills, games, mat chats, and live training.

We start every Kids Jiu-Jitsu class with our call and response Black Belt Bledge:

Whey are we here? To Learn
What do we give? 100%
To achieve? Success
What do we do when things are hard? Persevere
Who is responsible for your actions? I am
I believe in you? I believe in myself

The black belt pledge is a very important part of our program. We frame every class with the ideas of life-long learning, giving full effort in everything we do, personal success, perseverance, responsibility and self-belief. This is performed through a group response to help group dynamics. This allows you to use this pledge in your daily life. So if your child makes a poor decision, you can ask “who is responsible for your actions?” Or if they are having trouble with a math homework, then you can ask “what do we do when things get hard?” Before your child faces a difficult situation you can proudly say “I believe in you” and that will remind them of all the times that they have said “I believe in myself.”

Language powerfully shapes our thinking, which develops our beliefs, which forms our actions and our actions determine our reality.

Developing Gratitude and Grit in Our Students

Gratitude is a foundational value in the culture here at Jubera Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in both the kids and adult programs. Being thankful for the people and things we have in our lives leads us to take better care of those relationships and ourselves. Studies at Yale show us that gratitude leads to happiness, impulse control and mental strength. A kid with more gratitude is a happier, resilient and frankly tougher child. In practice, the best college wrestling room in the country, Penn State also talks about the value of gratitude on a consistent basis.

Through training at Jubera Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu your children will develop the all important quality of Grit in our Kids Jiu-Jitsu Program. See your kid develop the ability to persevere, overcome and succeed in difficult circumstances. Grit can only come from being tried and tested in a crucible like training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at our academy.

 

Kids Jiu-Jitsu: The Solution to Bullying

Your child will be learning the best martial art for bullying at Jubera Jiu-Jitsu. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a complete martial art that focuses on teaching kids to use leverage to subdue and neutralize their bullies without the use of punching or kicking. This method allows your child to defend themselves against larger attackers and to train in a safe, but challenging grappling art. When your little one succeeds in training you will see them gain real confidence in themselves and their ability to grow as a person. This confidence and physical training creates strong body language that will prevent the majority of bullying situations and we give your child simple verbal strategies when a bully persists. If all this prevention failed, know that you are giving your child the physical skills to defend themselves as well.

Not only does your kid develop real Jiu-Jitsu kills, but BJJ teaches your kid to stand up for themselves. We go over the 5 rules of engagement that include:

  • Avoid the Fight at All Cost
  • When attacked defend yourself
  • When made fun of, use the 3 T steps
More than 99% of the time our kids BJJ students will naturally be more self-confident and this will ward of bullies who will go for easier targets. But on the rare occurrence when it doesn’t our students have defended themselves successfully against much older (7 year old vs 14 year olds) or against multiple bullies at once. This will give you the confidence that you are giving your child the best tools available to defend themselves.
