Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone

Kids Martial Arts Program

All parents hope their child is physically and psychologically ready to deal with the challenges of life. Kids will face challenges that can be difficult and discouraging. This can come in the form of bullies, academics, failure, and other dangers that can influence their entire life. Children must learn how the defend themselves by having the right tools.

Martial arts for kids can bring a new surrounding of positivity into their life and into their surroundings. At Gracie Barra Santa Barbara we specialize in teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to our students. We take immense pride in our ability to help kids learn and become disciplined. We want them to have fun but also become more knowledgeable in defending themselves and improving their self-confidence.

What can Brazilian Jiu Jitsu do for children?
– Physical Fitness & Body Awareness

– Discipline & Self-Control
– Teamwork & Sportsmanship
– Focus

– Leadership & Cooperation

Unlike many other martial arts for kids, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training focuses on nonviolent methods to defend oneself. There is no punching, no kicking or striking of any kind. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu uses leverage and balance rather than strength. This can give the ability to a much smaller person defeat a much larger and stronger opponent.

We offer classes to all ages of children, our class schedule is designed to fit a parent’s and child’s availability to not interfere with school or home life.
