Kid's Class - Gi Jiu Jitsu


At Groundwork Grappling we teach traditional Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. When teaching kids class, Professor Raths uses fun games and an easy teaching style to instill the fundamental techniques into his students.

Why Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides many benefits to children that continue through their lives.

  • Problem-solving skills:

Every class students are faced with new problems and situations, be it a new technique or simply a new partner. The constant change and application of knowledge learned is a great way to sharpen young developing minds.

  • Discipline:

Having the structure, respect, and discipline that BJJ provides translates well into all aspects of life, from school to home life.

  • Physical Fitness:

Another benefit to children who train BJJ that is often overlooked is the fitness aspect. During class, BJJ is sure to work your body as much as your mind.

  • Social Benefits:

On the mats, all students are equal, no matter what. This allows for the trust and dedication required to practice a martial art. BJJ brings together groups that may not have met any other way- leading to a diverse and beneficial social experience.

  • Self Defense:

Unfortunately, in today's world, it is a reality that being able to defend yourself is a benefit. At Groundwork Grappling, one of our primary lessons for all students is that we should never escalate or use force if there is a way to defuse the situation, however if it is necessary, we want our students to be able to defend themselves effectively and efficiently. At some point, most physical altercations end up on the ground- which is where Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is most useful.
