Parkersburg Jiu-jitsu Academy Kids Martial Arts classes are a great way to build a foundation for our students that will lead to a bright, successful future!
Our Kids Martial Arts classes are designed to impart valuable life skills to our students from self-defense to stranger danger, to confidence and goal-setting. The primary focus of our Kids Martial Arts class is to develop fundamental techniques, and create a solid foundation to build upon in the older years.
Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are a highly effective and comprehensive system of standing and ground defense techniques utilizing rules of leverage. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers the ability for a smaller person to learn principles of leverage that will assist them in defending against or defeating a larger opponent, as well as a tremendous workout for children regardless of their athletic ability.
At Parkersburg Jiu-Jitsu Academy our kids classes are divided by age group, starting with our Little Cobras (ages 4-6), Cobras (ages 7-11), Jr. Combatives (ages 12-up). Our youth classes derive their name from Master Sauer's nickname he received from Grandmaster Helio Gracie, Cobrinha "Cobra".
