Jiu-Jitsu for Kids

Rilion Gracie Kansas City

Would you like to see your children to be confident, healthy, and respectful with a lifelong love of learning?

Our Kids and Juniors Program takes a two-fold approach to developing skills for children: Martial Arts and Personal Development.

Gracie Jiu Jitsu will develop an emotional balance that is a important key to inner peace, harmony, leadership, responsibility, courage and other important moral values. The Program gives your child the self control and ability to handle life’s threatening situations while building a strong foundation of self confidence. This conscience will enable your kids to develop a calmer and more tolerant disposition to be able to interact with other kids.

Because Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses the entire body to perform techniques, children build valuable motor skills and are confident in their ability. Each class consists of physical exercises, self defense techniques and educational games.

Kids Ages 5 to 16
