KIDS BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU CLASSES IN Kitsilano
The Gracie Barra Kitsilano’s Future Champions Program was created to provide children with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values around focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect – all through the principles of BJJ teachings.
To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that allows for perseverance and goal attainment. As a contact sport, Gracie Barra Kitsilano’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature into a real life champion.
The outcome of continued childhood practice of GB BJJ goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behavior at home and at school.
