What does it take to be a champion? Can a martial art support a parent’s education?

To excel in any endeavour, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that gives them perseverance to achieve his or her goals. The Gracie Barra Kids Program was created to provide children ages 4-15 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect.

As a contact sport, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature towards a real life champion. The outcome of continued childhood practice of BJJ goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behaviour at home and at school.

Our Kids Jiu Jitsu Program is typically subdivided in three different groups to accommodate students of different ages and skill levels:

  • GBK I (4-6 years old),
  • GBK II (7-11 Years Old),
  • GBK III (12-15 years old).

“There is no losing in Jiu-Jitsu. You either win or you learn.”

– Carlos Gracie Jr.
