Brazillian Juijitsu for Children


Whether your child or teen is a total beginner or already has experience in other martial arts, ROOTS BJJ classes will deliver benefits that extend beyond fitness and techniques. BJJ improves self-confidence, coordination, flexibility, self-control, and discipline. BJJ classes are also a great way to make friends. The recognition gained from peers for the student’s effort and progress on the mats is an extra confidence booster. The international grading system helps teach children how to set goals and how to achieve them through perseverance and determination.

ROOTS BJJ offers a range of training options for children and teens. These class are suitable for both boys and girls. Contact your local gym or visit the locations page to find out what is on offer near you. We also offer training in schools and after-school care programs, anti-bullying programs, and specialised rugby tackle-training workshops.

The little Ninjas classes are a modified children’s BJJ curriculum, and they are designed for children between the ages of 3 to 5 (pre-school). The Little Ninjas classes have a strong focus on fun, balance, and coordination. Classes work with the basics of BJJ, and incorporate elements of functional training (e.g. obstacle courses and animal walks). Classes run between 30 minutes to one hour depending on the gym.
