Help your children develop confidence, skills and fitness to serve them a lifetime.
To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that gives them perseverance to achieve his or her goals. The Gracie Barra Kids Program was created to provide children ages 3-15 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like resilience, focus, discipline, cooperation and respect.
As a contact sport, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature towards a real life champion.The outcome of continued childhood practice of GB BJJ goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behavior at home and at school.
Our Kids Program is typically subdivided in three different groups to accommodate students of different ages and skill levels:
Improve children’s social skills
Better understanding of goal-setting and working towards them
Learn the GB Self-Defense System
Increase focus, energy, and concentration
Enjoy significant gains in overall fitness level
Train in 13 different locations in Sydney and the Greater Sydney Area and in over 860 Gracie Barra Academies worldwide - for free.
The first time you come to our school you will be welcomed by our staff. Please arrive 15 minutes before class so you and your children have enough time to prepare for practice. The class will start on time and your child will be asked to walk to the training area where the instructor will be waiting for him or her. One of the assistant instructors or a senior student will be assigned as a helper to assist your child in performing the drills and activities. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch the entire practice.
