New Student: Kids MMA

Friday(KIDS MMA)  5:30-6:30 PM

Dear Student and Parent,

Welcome to the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training program! This class is designed to develop self-defense skills, build confidence, teach patience and self-control. There is no punching or kicking during sparring in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Instead, it is a series of techniques that leads to a finishing move or dominant position. Finishing someone is  known as the TAPOUT or a submission!  BJJ looks very similar to collegiate wrestling or Judo. Above all we want to be able to protect ourselves. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, when studied properly is the most effective self-defense method in the world. 

Guidelines for Jiu-Jitsu Class:

  • Students are to arrive 5 minutes prior to class but not earlier than 10 minutes

  • Training is conducted with a partner. So, it is important that the student maintains

good personal hygiene and uniform washing. Student health and wellbeing is important to us.

  • Please remove all jewelry prior to class and no gum/candy during class. This is a must!!

  • Direct questions about Jiu-Jitsu training, belts, and uniforms to the instructor. 912-660-6821 OR

  • Please go to the front desk with questions about enrollment and payment.

BJJ belt ranking is a slow process.  Stripes are contingent on class participation alone. If the student misses half of the class, or is not mentally involved, even though physically present; credit for class participation may not be given. Once a student has four stripes it is near time for a belt promotion. No marks are given for attendance, once a student has four stripes. A belt promotion is based of the students abilities, age, and skills; it’s not automatic or a given. The stripes distinguish a new belt from an experienced one. The time in belt transition, after four stripes, is a buffer for different abilities and types of learning. Students will earn their belts through practicing BJJ, performing Jiu Jitsu moves in class, achievements in BJJ competition, dedication, and behavior.

*Most Importantly: The gym is for Martial Arts only. Enjoy your time training.
