Our kids programmes are structured similarly to adult courses, with adaptations and modifications made to engage the different age ranges within the class, to maximise both learning and enjoyment.  Our classes begin teaching children and teens the building blocks that are needed to understand the fundamental techniques of Jiu-Jitsu and MMA.

Our kids curriculums have been developed and structured in a way that teaches children and teens effective self defence whilst developing valuable life skills.  By practicing martial arts, children and teens release their energy in a healthy and productive way, gaining real-world benefits which they wouldn’t develop from other sports; including increased focus and concentration, goal setting, confidence, resilience and leadership skills.

Through training Jiu-Jitsu and MMA at either of our Gracie Barra schools children can experience a fitness program like no other, improving their coordination, strength and core-stability and developing positive, healthy attitudes early in life.

Our Gracie Barra academies provide kids and teens with a sense of community, where they feel safe and can develop lifelong friendships.
