Our youth curriculum follows the IBJJF belt system of 4 stripes per belt and 3 belts per color. It is very important to us that kids earn their belt, nobody will be handed a belt they have not earned. The work ethic and respect that learning jiu jitsu will teach the children is a life long skill that will benefit them. Our curriculum is based off of competition and self defense jiu jitsu. So if kids need to defend themselves they will be able to, but also if they want to compete at a high level we have some of the best kid competitors in the state for them to train with. If you are looking for a way for your child to develop some self confidence, respect, or discipline all while learning one of the most efficient and effective martial arts out there, look no further. Our youth instructors have over 10 years of teaching youth jiu jitsu specifically. Carlson Gracie Jiu Jitsu is known for being very effective and straight forward. Your children will get the chance to attend seminars with legends of the sport such as Carlson Gracie Jr himself. The best way to see how effective this sport can be in helping your child is to come in and try it out! Everyone will get a free week trial to make sure that our gym is a good fit for your child.
