Children’s Jiu-Jitsu Classes in Albuquerque, NM

New Mexico Jiu-Jitsu Academy provides children’s Jiu-Jitsu classes with a focus on bully prevention. We teach physical and mental/verbal self-defense  and character development, giving children the skills they need to stay out of trouble and avoid confrontation. Our classes also give young students valuable lessons in self-discipline, social skills, physical fitness and more to improve their well-being.

Benefits of Jiu-Jitsu Classes for Kids

Martial arts can benefit children in many ways:

  • By providing practical self-defense skills that can be used in protection against bullies.
  • By empowering children and improving their self-esteem and confidence.
  • By creating a productive outlet for their energy and providing physical fitness.
  • By establishing a healthy and respectful space for socialization and making friends.

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is especially useful for children because the curriculum we teach is primarily based around self-defense and neutralizing confrontation. We don’t teach aggressive skills like punching or kicking in our children’s Jiu-Jitsu classes; we teach defense tactics that are effective against larger bullies and can stop a situation from escalating.

Our Children’s Jiu-Jitsu Program

Physical self-defense is just one aspect of our bully prevention program. We have a deep focus on mental and verbal self-defense, building a child’s confidence and improving their ability to deal productively with bullying: when to stand up for themselves, what to say to bullies, even how to say it. You can learn about this and our other children’s Jiu-Jitsu classes here.
