Kids 6 - 9
What if your child had the tools to disarm a bully and the confidence to stand up for themselves and others?
The Twin Tigers Kids BJJ program is designed to be an exciting and engaging way to build your child's physical and mental ability and instilling confidence while giving them the tools to disarm and defeat a larger opponent. We are teaching our children to stand up for themselves and others, establish control of a bad situation and to do so using minimal force.
Our students are not only taught solid technique but also when it is and isn't appropriate to use the skills they have learned. We have established Rules of Engagement and we communicate the importance of first using our "verbal defense" and avoiding a fight at all costs.
At the 6 to 9 year old age level we are able to begin to better explore the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and help the student gain more understanding of the core concepts and ideas while still focusing on providing a strong foundation in discipline, fine motor skills, and basic technique. We present these techniques to them in a fun and engaging way while still keeping a focus on skill building and whole student development.
This program will not only help keep your child physically fit and active but the students will learn the benefits of good behavior, team work, sportsmanship, and good manners. We discuss how our skills enable us to safely get up if pushed to the ground, what to do if somebody sits on top of them or pins them down, and how to gain control of a bad situation and how to put themselves in the control position.
The basics and lessons taught in this class will prepare the student for advancement in rank in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Many of the same concepts you are working to enforce with your children at home will be reinforced in the classroom setting. Respect of self and others and leadership are regularly talked about in our class. We believe that positive reinforcement is key in developing the whole student.
