Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial-arts program that emphasizes close-quarter passive protection. Our BJJ program has matured over a 15-year period, which is longer than any other competitive BJJ program in the Baltimore and Maryland region.
BJJ is an easy style to learn and is unparalleled in effectiveness in comparison to other more traditional martial-arts styles. Our teaching methodology incorporates skill-oriented techniques and drills that sometimes seem like fun and games to the children. Through this approach, young students learn effective techniques — but also yearn to stick with the program.
While we encourage our youth students to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for its benefits in exercise and discipline, we understand parents sometimes seek out martial-arts programs as an antidote to school bullying. Our students can easily and effectively restrain a bully, stopping him or her from taking more aggressive actions. At the same time, we’re careful about how much we teach our youngest students: We wait until a student has matured physically and mentally before we teach common jiu-jitsu submission techniques, like arm bars and chokes. Those techniques can cause serious injury (on the part of the bully or aggressor), and in some cases lead to school suspensions or even lawsuits.
CNN News recently aired a segment featuring children who learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to deter childhood bullying. This popular children’s BJJ program — called Bullyproof® — is now featured at many BJJ schools around the world.
Many of our junior BJJ students test their skills in local and national competitions, including the NAGA (North American Grappler’s Association), Grapplers Quest, Copa Nova, and other prestigious BJJ tournaments. Our students also compete in Judo tournaments sanctioned by the United States Judo Federation. Interested parents should inquire about our junior competition travel team.
