Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Kids (4-8 years) & Juniors (9-14 years)
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for children now also at Renzo Gracie Tilburg.Are you looking for a self-defense or martial art for children aged 4 to 14? Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is definitely worth considering. Training BJJ appeals to motor skills, mentality and social ability. Kids pick up skills that they can enjoy outside of the gym too.
Most importantly… BJJ is super fun to do. Children can enjoy themselves physically – without really hurting each other. And it is always challenging. The further you are, the better your moves!
BJJ Kids & Juniors classes in Tilburg
The BJJ kids classes take place twice a week. On Mondays and Wednesdays.
In every training, children playfully work on:
- attitude (physical, mental and social),
- self-confidence and self-control,
- keep calm in tense situations.
The lessons are usually given by an experienced trainer who has been working with children for a long time. During the school holidays we continue to train (with one exception).
Messing around as martial art
Children naturally mess around with each other. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an extension of that. We actually turn messing around into a martial art. Every lesson we discuss a position in which you can end up rolling around. We pay attention to both the defensive and the offensive possibilities.
Learning to fight is like learning to draw. It starts out wild and impulsive. With a lot of practice you get better and obtain more control. And it's then that you really benefit from it. It gives confidence when you know that you can stand up for yourself!
Age and modifications
The classes are open to boys and girls from 4 years old.
During the lessons, the Kids (4-8 years) and Juniors (9-14 years) are separated and train with peers.
All exercises are done in a controlled manner.
The instructor ensures that all exercises are done in a controlled manner.
