KIDS & TEENS

Kids and Teens

Our Gracie Barra Kids program is designed to teach children self-discipline and self-defence with a curriculum tailored by age group.

Children and teens of all skill levels and abilities will benefit from Jiu-Jitsu classes at Gracie Barra Nottingham and Gracie Barra Arnold. Our Gracie Barra Kids program is designed to teach children self-discipline as well as providing a unique way to express themselves. Our instructors are trained to interact and offer gentle correction for children and teens who practice the art of Jiu-Jitsu. Children over the age of three can begin their training at either of our Gracie Barra Schools, experiencing the true power of brotherhood and integrity.

Our GBK program is structured similarly to adult courses, with adaptations and modifications made to reach the different age ranges in the class. Jiu-Jitsu classes for children begin with the building blocks that are needed to teach the fundamentals of Jiu-Jitsu. We have developed a curriculum that is structured

Gracie Barra is proud to offer Jiu-Jitsu classes that provide children of all ages real-world benefits. By practicing Jiu-Jitsu, children learn valuable skills they wouldn’t develop from other sports, including coordination, increased focus and concentration, self-defence, goal setting, confidence and fitness.

Practicing Jiu-Jitsu at either of our Gracie Barra schools helps children and teens release their energy in a healthy and productive way. Our certified instructors teach children to focus their attention on one task at a time, honing their abilities and developing critical thinking skills. When children learn how to do this, they’ll see a gain in their overall fitness level.

The Gracie Barra Brotherhood provides kids and teens with a sense of community. We are organized like a team, but fight together like a family. This philosophy helps our students build trust and leadership skills with every class. Both of our Gracie Barra Schools help children learn valuable life skills that can be used both in and out of the classroom.

By joining our Gracie Barra Nottingham or Gracie Barra Arnold team for Jiu-Jitsu classes, children can experience a fitness program like no other. Kids and teens alike will enjoy a boost in confidence, better focus and critical self-defence skills.

I have been with this club since it formed with Gracie Barra, I have seen it grow from then into a large family and fighters orientated club. Testimony to this is how the club has pulled and stayed together throughout the covid 19 lockdown. Want to get rid of that lockdown weight gain.. look out for the gym reopening!!

With a fantastic coaching team across a variety of martial arts including BJJ Judo Wrestling Muay Thai and MMA and a friendly, welcoming community ranging from proffesional and amateur fighters to once a week hobbyists and everything in between this is a great place to train and learn martial arts whatever your goals are.

Gracie Barra Chelmsford has professional, knowledgeable and friendly instructors. My child is attending the future champions BJJ program, learning both useful skills and finding this enjoyable. The BJJ program utilizes a curriculum with structured learning. Parking right by the gym can be a problem, but there is plenty of alternative parking within close walking distance. The overall gym environment is clean and tidy.
