  • Our children's programme is designed to introduce our youngest students to Jiu Jitsu and help them develop agility, flexibility and coordination.
  • Our curriculum includes fun games and interactive exercises that teach basic jiu jitsu moves and beginner techniques
  • By learning self-defence techniques, your child will gain confidence and learn to stand up for themselves and others
  • Your child will become calmer, more focused and disciplined
