Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
It seems like we see a news report every week talking about the bullying epidemic that has become so common in our schools and among our young generation. In 2016 there have been 15,679 cases of bullying, violence and vandalism reported among New Jersey students alone. In the US as many as 150,000 kids miss school due to fear and harassment from bullies. Bullying is one on the main causes of low self esteem in children and teenagers. In many cases most victims of bullying do not report or talk about the incidents due to fear of further retaliation. Bullies are insecure people who harass children who are viewed as smaller or weaker in order to boost their own ego and self esteem.
Kids program objectives:

Instill a sense of discipline
Promote physical fitness
Enjoy Brazilian Jiu Jitsu!
Our main focus in our Kids Jiu Jitsu program is to pay particular attention on what is happening mentally in our children as much as we focus on their physical activity and by doing so we equip them with the tools they need in order to effectively deal with any of life's challenges and be able to carry that confidence into into adulthood.
Many parents report that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has given their children a high sense of self-esteem and confidence and has increased their ability to deal with stressful situations this knowledge has made their children less appealing as targets for bullies. Additionally, our BQJJ kids will be more prepared to deal with a wide range of common scenarios, including defending themselves should they be left with no other choice.
Our program also offers our BQJJ kids the ability to undertake the challenge of competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments against other kids of similar size, and experience if they so choose.
Our Kids program is divided into 3 age categories: 4-6 , 7-8 and 9-14 years old.
All of our BQJJ Kids classes are designed to have a balance between having fun in order to keep kids engaged, while at the same time, instilling a sense of self-discipline as they learn new jiu jitsu techniques and develop their skills.
