Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes
Our program focuses on teaching our students the sport of jiu jitsu in a safe, rewarding environment in which growth and improvement are encouraged. More than teaching the sport of jiu jitsu we teach our students discipline, respect and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. We treat all our students the same working with them to realize their full potential and help them to grow within the dojo as well as within their life. We work closely with and keep strong communication between our students and their parent/guardian. We encourage parent/guardians to play an active role in the positive development of their child in our facility.
Jiu Jitsu, although an individual sport requires a strong team for development. Whether our students are champions or have never competed in a tournament , we depend on one another to advance. At Driven we believe that "steel sharpens steel". Behind every champion is a long list of team players who have helped that individual to become what they are. We also believe that hard work is always rewarded. Our training sessions consist of warm up, strength , conditioning, flexibility, technique and scrimmaging. A large focus is on the conditioning of our students to build them strong physically and mentally. When one is faced with challenge and over comes that challenge self confidence is improved and that is our most useful tool.
Our classes are taught by qualified experienced coaches who lead by example. We practice what we preach. We show compassion and respect to our students and in doing so our students are more eager and motivated to do their absolute best. Whether the student wins a tournament or loses a match in practice if the best effort was made improvement happens. Our KIDS/YOUTH program welcomes all eager students from ages 4-13yrs. Our program is divided into the following age groups: Kids classes 4-7yrs, Youth 8-13yrs. If a student demonstrates the appropriate skills we will advance them into an older age group as we see fit.
We understand that not every student learns or advances at an equal pace so we structure our classes to meet the capabilities of each individual making sure that they are successful in reaching their goals and creating new ones. We ask that each student attends every class with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn.
Jiu Jitsu teaches students to use their bodies as a very important and skillful tool. Driven encourages their students to advance their skills but enforces that all which is learnt only be used in a safe manner with good intentions and a willing participant. We have a zero tolerance policy for anyone who misuses this skill set and will be immediately excused from our facility.
We believe that improvement happens best through testing and challenge. Whether the challenge is within self or maybe a certain match at a tournament we strongly encourage our students to continually challenge themselves.
