Kids Program


   

 

Our Hero Kids program emphasizes grappling, a form of combat that uses locks, chokes, and holds rather than striking. The curriculum focuses on controlling an opponent, transitions, and positional sparring with other students. The techniques the students will learn are explained and repeated in ways that will help younger students remember them more easily. The concepts of perseverance (steadfastness and persistence; not giving up in spite of difficulty), respect (regard and consideration for others), courtesy (acts and behavior that demonstrate respect, manners, and consideration), and self- control (exercising restraint over one’s actions and impulses) are at the core of the program.
Our guidelines designed to help your child learn and grow in a safe, positive, and fun environment where the emphasis is on the development of good character, self-esteem and physical fitness.
 
As the student becomes consistent with the basics, they earn stripes and different belts and progress to an advanced group of kids with similar experience levels.
Your Child’s First BJJ Class
A typical class starts with warm-up exercises, stretches, and drills. Once everyone is warmed up, the instructor demonstrates the technique. After showing different angles and answer any questions, the students are paired off to practice the technique while the instructor walks the mats and help those needing individual attention. After everyone has an understanding of the first technique, a second technique may be shown. Towards the end of the class, there may be specific training or live sparring. Specific training starts at a particular position, with different goals for both students, or trying to apply the technique learn to a live partner. Live sparring is when you can incorporate all of the techniques that you may have learned and try to apply them to a live partner.
