Why Take Kids BJJ at KnuckleUp
At KnuckleUp Fitness, we provide instruction in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the ultimate grappling art for kids! Like wrestling and Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches the use of “technique over strength.”
Kids, no matter how big or small, learn how to use their size to their advantage to counter all kinds of punches, kicks, and holds. They also learn to use the opponent against themselves to achieve throws, take-downs, and position control on the ground, which can stop any attacker no matter their size or strength.
All kids’ classes are taught by black belt instructors at the same time as our other adult classes, so parents can easily work out when their kids are in class! In addition, classes are offered at all levels of experience and age groups ranging from 3 to 12 years olds.
Students also get the opportunity to compete against one another in Knuckleup’s Competitive Sparring League. This inter-club competition is designed to help kids develop a positive competitive attitude and spirit.
