Get Ready for the Next Spring Kids Tournament!


Saturday, April 13, 2024

(Registration Deadline: April 6)

Registration Fee: $40


Our Kids Jiu-Jitsu Tournament helps our students to learn how to compete and gain experience. It prepares students for bigger competitions, both in Jiu-Jitsu and in life. What builds emotional stability and maturity is experiencing the ability to face adversity and challenge with an open mind and fighting spirit. Children who build the capacity to face confrontation with confidence, will become adults who are able to persevere in a challenging world.

- Competition is an excellent learning tool for kids to take on the challenge.

- Competing regularly in Jiu-Jitsu helps kids to accept that they can't win all the time – and that it's OK to lose.

- Competing in Jiu-Jitsu, is a perfectly healthy way to express themselves. Additionally, competing in such an event teaches children important life lessons that they may not receive anywhere else.

ABOUT OUR CAMP:
Our half-day summer camps offer an amazing combination of authentic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) instruction, self-defense skills, teamwork, fitness, and lots of fun martial arts games. Kids will practice coordination, communication, strategic thinking (think human chess!), confidence-building and other important life skills! We'll also dive into the history of the sport and Brazilian culture. We invite children to learn all about the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the most effective martial arts available.

Our camp sessions are taught by Master Julio “Foca” Fernandez, 7th Degree Coral Belt. Only a few people in the world have achieved this rank and still teach kids programs. He continues to share his knowledge with future generations for over 20+ years of teaching children.

Our martial arts summer camp is open to everyone - no prior martial arts experience is required. Your child's safety is our top priority. All our camp instructors have years of experience teaching martial arts to children in a controlled, safe, and friendly environment. Children will only be paired with same peers.

Your child will gain confidence, discipline, respect for others and learn life skills that will help him or her in daily-life situations as well as to grow into a stronger person.
