Jiu Jitsu Classes



Jiu Jitsu / 10th Planet Kids is offered through Blue Dragon! This class is all grappling. Jiu Jitsu is one of the most effective martial arts for fitness and self defense plus it's tons of fun! We teach 10th Planet style Jiu- Jitsu - a new advanced style of No-Gi grappling. We are the first studio that teaches the "kid friendly" 10th Planet system. Sensei Kim teaches this class for kids ages 6-15. It covers control positions, safety, self defense and Jiu- Jitsu for tournament competitions. In No-Gi you wear shorts and a rash guard instead of the Grappling uniform or Gi. Sensei Kim ranks the kids from white to green and after age 15 they may enter the adult program. This class is relaxed with more of a "sport" environment, but of course safety, honesty and respect are always a part of any Blue Dragon class. All Grappling Class students have an opportunity to compete in outside tournaments with the Competition Team- "Team Ground Control!"

Equipment Needed



If you sign your child up for this class, it's all "no-gi," meaning the kids don't wear a traditional "gi" uniform. They can wear sport type shorts (with no pockets or zippers) and a rash guard or t-shirt, and no shoes. They will need a mouth guard (we sell all kinds in the pro-shop at the gym) and it's strongly recommended that the boys wear protective cups. That's it!

Prices



$85 per month for unlimited access, meaning you can bring your child to as many classes a week as you'd like. We don't have contracts and don't believe in hard selling. To find out more about pricing and payments, click here.

Ages



Ages 6-16years old.

Free trial class



If you'd like your child to try a class for free, just come into any of our regularly scheduled classes 15 minutes before class starts (no need to make an appointment). Have your child wear sports shorts and a t-shirt

It's more than just Jiu Jitsu



As with all our programs at Blue Dragon Martial Arts, we teach that martial arts is more than just learning technique, but that it's a lifestyle our instructors and students choose where combat techniques are learned hand in hand with being respectful, responsible, and compassionate to those around us. Our Jiu Jitsu program is no different. Your child will learn and experience more than just Jiu Jitsu in this class.

Live Rolls



Rolling

At the end of every class, your child will get a chance to practice their technique in "live rolls." The kids love this, as it's a chance for them to free form wrestle with the other kids. The kids select a partner, and the timer is set for 1 to 3 minute rounds. During those rounds, your child will practice both attacking and defending using their Jiu Jitsu skills. When the round ends, they select a new partner, and go again. This gives them real world scenario to use their Jiu Jitsu, while in a safe and respectful environment.

Jiu Jitsu Belt Promotions

Everyone starts out as a white belt in the kids Jiu Jitsu program (unless transferring from another school, in which case they will be evaluated for the appropriate belt rank when joining our school). Throughout their training, the kids have the potential to earn the following belt ranks:


JJ Belts

If they get all the way up to their blue belt (around age 16), they will be officially ranked as a blue belt in Adult Jiu Jitsu (world-wide). At each belt, there are four stripes that must be earned to progress to the next belt. The time-frame it takes to achieve stripes and belts is dependent on many different factors, such as frequency of training, aptitude, effort put into training, whether or not the student competes in tournaments, etc. Everyone is on their own journey in their jiu jitsu careers. Belt promotions happen as frequently as the instructors feel necessary, but generally take place every couple of months. As with all our other programs, belts are truly earned, and your child will feel confident and successful in the belts they earn!
