“Teach the children ... so it will not be necessary to teach the adults.” - Abraham Lincoln
The Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Kids/Youth Program at First State Martial Arts Academy provides a safe, structured and fun learning environment for children to learn what many consider to be the most effective self-defense martial arts discipline for kids. Martial Arts training, especially Jiu-Jitsu, will not only keep your child active, it will also teach them discipline, self-control, and self-confidence as they learn invaluable self-defense strategies and techniques. And, they will gain all of these benefits while making new friends. Our students are encouraged to respect their parents and teachers, be leaders at school, and demonstrate compassion and kindness to everyone around them.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a great activity for both boys and girls of all ages and can help children improve fitness and gain valuable social skills. Children who study Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu also learn vital problem solving skills. Our students are constantly forced to figure out new problems and situations, which is great for sharpening and developing young minds. Kids will develop a problem-solving mindset that will carry into other areas of their lives.
Our kids’ classes are separated by age (4-7 and 8-13), but age is only used as a guide. Instructors make final decisions regarding individual student levels.
