Classes are taught in a simple and structured manner so that EVERYONE can participate, learn and see the results! We offer fun and instructional classes for kids that integrate self-defense techniques with conditioning and skill oriented games, aimed at improving your child’s coordination, motor skills, agility and flexibility.
We can start children as early as 3 years old! Your child will develop anti-bully skills, important social skills, learn to listen and focus, gain self-confidence, discipline and body coordination. If your child is shy and this is the first time your child will be in a group setting, please stay with them to watch an entire class first. This will give your child an opportunity to become familiar and relaxed with their new surroundings and very likely to participate the next time they come in.
Get your child involved in learning self-defense, discipline and teamwork! At Uflacker Academy, your child will learn a complete self-defense system that will give your child a degree of self-confidence. Furthermore, we teach positive social values such as respect, honesty, humility and dignity. The practice of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is seen as a means to individual development and our kids program emphasizes these important life skills.
When your child transitions to advanced class, your child will have a basic understanding of self-defense, take-downs, body control and body positioning. The focus of this class is to further develop the understanding and use of leverage as well as the implementation of submissions and dominant positions.
Students will learn how to apply Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques without using the gi/kimono. In this class we will cover throws, take-downs, position control and further develop your child’s endurance.
