Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an excellent martial art for children as the skills are based on technique and leverage, rather than size or strength. Jiu Jitsu requires the entire body to be used when performing techniques and movements. Children are able to build valuable motor skills, coordination, resiliency, self- defence and confidence while having loads of fun during class. Junior classes typically involve warm up drills, technique practice, sparring and games. A typical class runs for approximately 45 minutes.
