Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Junior 1 Grappler (Ages 6-9)

Our Junior Grapplers Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class spans ages 6 and up. Students begin their Jiu-Jitsu Journey learning the basics of Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Students begin right away learning the 5 effective facets of Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu including Standing Self Defense, Grappling, Striking, Throws and Takedowns and finally Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu  philosophy. They are taught when it is appropriate to use their new found skills and that they should only be used for self defense and survival.

Through the practice of techniques in class (grappling, joint manipulations, chokes and other defensive techniques), partner interaction and helping each other develop, students move toward their next ranks through mastering the Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu curriculum. Partner interaction in this program is almost immediate.

Students are urged to concentrate on improving and achieving their goals through hard work versus expecting rank or privilege based on merely attending class.

After students have achieved a proficiency in the basic techniques and etiquettes of Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu they are welcomed to explore the concepts of competition by attending our competition based classes.
