Gracie Barra Sunninghill provides an outstanding kids program for future champions & aspiring young athletes. It was created to provide children between ages 3-15 with an environment that enables them to participate in and understand, values that are central to our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu methodology, such as focus, discipline, persistence, teamwork and politeness whilst making new friends & learning new skills. As a “gentle” art & combat sport, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides an exciting, safe and caring environment for children to progress toward the more intricate content and higher-level Gracie Barra Sunninghill senior programs. The result of the long-term practice of Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu goes well beyond achievements on the mats. The self-discipline and excellence encouraged and embodied by our coaches often carries over to other aspects of our children’s lives. As an added benefit, kids enrolled in the program are taught practical and easily implemented strategies to help them counteract bullying in school. Gracie Barra kids are much less likely to be bullied because they learn both verbal and non-verbal skills for de-escalating and safely defusing situations that might otherwise lead to physical violence. Of course, they are also taught to safely and effectively defend themselves, their friends & the people they care about. Kids learn to focus their attention and exert their energy in a positive way that empowers them to reach their personal goals. They all get to enjoy a healthy socialising experience of being part of a team dynamic & making new friends whilst learning a valuable skill. At Gracie Barra Sunninghill we pride ourselves on providing a clean, safe, family environment which each child can grow as both an individual with unique needs & talents and as an important member of our youth team & community. Our classes are punctual, consistent & structured. Our Gracie Barra Champion KIDS Program is subdivided into three different age groups to provide the most appropriate instruction for students of different ages and skill levels:
Our Future Champs Program was created to provide children ages 6-9yrs with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect. In this 50 minute class we introduce fundamental jiu-jitsu focused on self-defence, leverage, posture & competition elements. While also dedicating class time to their physical conditioning & core strength with live drills & games. A child needs absolutely no experience to start, and we guarantee a noticeable increase in your child’s confidence within a few weeks!
