Why Do Kids Love the Jiu Jitsu Program at WCJJM?
In a playful environment, children’s classes begin with Jiu-Jitsu games that help your child learn the fundamentals of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu).
Children are taught how to avoid bullying, while quickly becoming equipped to defend themselves if physically attacked.

Why Should My Child Learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Instead of Other Martial Arts such as Karate or Taekwondo?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is different from other martial arts in that it doesn’t use striking.
Why is this great for kids?
Instead of punching, they learn to subdue.
Instead of kicking, they learn resilience.
Instead of aggression, they learn how to peacefully avoid situations.
Is It Safe for My Child to Learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
All martial arts carry some degree of risk.
However, as BJJ focuses on subduing opponents without striking, it provides a method of de-escalating situations without hurting someone.
