Jiu-Jitsu For Teenagers
With the world constantly throwing new curve balls and challenges to our youth, it is more important than ever to prepare our young people for anything they may encounter. Through martial arts, teenagers are able to gain the confidence and discipline that is required for them to succeed and stay safe the day their parents are no longer there 24/7 to protect them.

Teen Jiu-Jitsu Program: This program is designed to teach high school-aged students how to defend themselves by learning the fundamentals of Jiu-Jitsu both with or without the Gi (kimono).
Q: Why Jiu-Jitsu?
A: It is said that over 80 percent of fights go to the ground. Having an understanding of ground fighting turns going to the ground from a weakness to a major strength.
Below are some of the subjects we will be covering in our Jiu-Jitsu Program:
· How to takedown an opponent
· How to stop an opponent from taking you down
· How to get on top and control the position(Side Control, Full Mount, etc..)
· How to submit an opponent from the top position
· How to fight off your back to submit or reverse the position
· How to attack the back and how to defend against getting choked
This list could go on and on but you get the idea
Jiu-Jitsu with a Self-Defense first approach: Bottom line is that S#iT is crazy out there so while winning tournaments is cool it’s cooler for our students to know how to defend themselves first and foremost. If you look at social media, you may see a million different techniques that look incredibly flashy but in reality, they’re the last thing you want to do in a Self-Defense situation. Rest assured, as parents with our own children in this program, our curriculum is designed to teach positional dominance above everything in order to ensure our children may successfully defend themselves in a Self-Defense situation.
