Cub-Jitsu is Zoo BJJ’s training program specifically designed to help kids learn anti-bully, non-violent self-defense techniques while reinforcing the essentials of character development and life skills such as: respect, health, responsibility, self-discipline, citizenship, manners, etc. Additionally, your child will learn the key functional movement patterns and fundamental Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques that will set a solid foundation essential to further development in the sport. Above all, the goal of each class will be to have fun in a safe learning environment.
We will teach your child to use verbal assertiveness to deter bullies and several non-violent, self-defense techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted. Importantly, we don’t teach how to punch or kick, since this often does more harm than good. Instead, we use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence. All techniques are taught with a safety first mentality which allows students to develop the confidence to apply the techniques on resisting partners without sacrificing effectiveness.
Students will receive an overview of all positions, techniques, and an introduction into more advanced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, all while exploring the core concepts and ideas of the sport. Again, all techniques are taught with a safety first mentality which allows students to develop the confidence to apply the techniques on resisting partners without sacrificing effectiveness.
If you’re interested in instilling your child with unshakable self-confidence while reinforcing positive values and good character, the Cub-Jitsu program is for you!
