Our Youth Program provides the highest level of technical Jiu Jitsu training, a focus on values and character, and a meaningful system of promotion and accomplishment – all in a safe and fun environment.
While Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is our main focus, we also periodically incorporate self-defense and anti-abduction training. This includes some striking (punches and kicks). The youth classes are fun and energetic and give the kids a real sense of accomplishment and pride in what they learn each day.
We expect growth in these areas:
Character — respect, self-discipline, focus, dedication, confidence, and integrity
Physical — coordination, balance, flexibility, strength, endurance, quickness and agility
Self-defense — simple, effective techniques that can be used to defend oneself and others; with an emphasis on appropriateness
Our older students follow a tailored curriculum, based on Impact’s current Blue Belt Curriculum for adults. The curriculum was designed at Impact by Impact and supports preparation for Blue Belt eligibility at age 16 and requires significant knowledge of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This program supports basic and advanced BJJ techniques and offers tournament preparation.
Our younger students receive technical Jiu Jitsu training, covering fundamentals from take downs, positions, and transitions, to age appropriate submissions and competition skills. Throughout class each month, the students continually review the importance of teamwork, focus and the value of the month.
