Our Little Samurai Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program is designed for kids ages 3 to 5. Our classes focus on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fundamentals with an emphasis on “fun”.
This program is designed to give your child a balanced and effective approach to developing self defense techniques and confidence through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu based martial arts training. Our focus is to instill confidence and to develop a deep sense of respect for others. We accomplish this by providing a class environment that is positive and simultaneously demanding. A uniform is required for this class.
Teaches Hard Work
Don’t get us wrong, BJJ is a ton of fun…but it’s also hard work! We want our students to learn from a young age what it means to keep trying even when you get tired or can’t get the hang of a technique right away. There’s nothing more rewarding than setting a goal for yourself and finally accomplishing it! Whether it’s earning your next belt or learning a new technique, our team is here for you.
A confident kid is a happy kid. There’s nothing worse than watching your child struggle to make friends, speak out in class, or stand up against bullies. The earlier you can build up your child’s confidence, the better! BJJ has long been regarded as one of the best ways to improve self-esteem in people of all ages, but its benefits for children are undeniable. Kids in Jiu Jitsu will realize their talent, be cheered on by their peers and instructors, learn to use their voice, and feel a newfound sense of accomplishment. Sign your child up today and watch them blossom!
Having a purpose in life isn’t just important for adults – it matters for kids too! Children may beg to sit in front of the TV all day, but this just won’t make them happy. Having a source of motivation is the recipe for success in kids’ lives. An activity like BJJ gets kids active, improves their mood, and helps them feel accomplished. Not to mention, Jiu Jitsu improves students’ performance in all aspects of their lives. The values they learn in our school will push them to do better in school, practice better behavior at home, treat others with greater respect, and set goals for themselves.
Makes Life Better
At Peninsula Self Defense, we’re not worried about winning awards or preparing your child for a black belt. Above all else, we care about our young students’ personal development and growth. We wouldn’t be teaching BJJ to children if we didn’t see firsthand the way it changes children’s lives for the better. Jiu Jitsu provides kids with a safe space where they can learn important life lessons, make healthy friendships, find mentorship in their instructors, and discover their passion for martial arts early in life.
As a parent, your priority is keeping your child safe. That’s why we are so passionate about equipping kids with the invaluable self-defense skills that BJJ provides.
From the moment a child steps into our building, they will be met with a supportive and inclusive environment of instructors and fellow students who want them to succeed. Because students regularly spar with each other in class, you may be surprised to learn just how strong the friendships in our BJJ classes are. Jiu Jitsu teaches kids the thrill of winning as well as the humility of losing, and we make sure our students respect each other throughout all the highs and lows of their training.
