Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) for children is a physical & practical martial art that emphasizes self defense, physical fitness and self control. BJJ is also a popular sport and is especially well suited for kids that prefer to not engage in team activities.
In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we avoid being punched or kicked by taking our opponents to the ground via a throw or wrestler’s takedown. Once on the ground, an opponent or bully who unfamiliar with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is helpless because they are restricted in their ability to move. We teach our children not to be bullies or misuse the skills that they learn but to be helpful and compassionate to others. BJJ training fosters confidence and self control and helps to develop a child's character.
Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is very popular. We have in excess of 150 junior BJJ students. Our children’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is headed by the owner of the school, Sensei Gary Berger. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a more modern art in comparison to other more traditional styles like Karate, Tae Kwon Do and Judo.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has become a very sought after martial art style all over the world ever since it was featured on television in the mid 90’s. Master Berger has been teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to children since 1995, longer than any other known BJJ institution in Maryland.
