They were given a chance to succeed!

Little Chamipions parents you gave your child a chance to succeed in life. Bellow are some of the benefits your child enjoying in our club:

Self Defense

The ability to defend yourself against an assailant is an empowering feeling. Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu uses self defense as a cornerstone of our entire program, you can be certain that with regular practice, your child will learn to defend himself in a variety of different ways. In our school We also teach street-smart techniques to kids to help avoid problems altogether.

Self Discipline

Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu will help instill mental focus in your child, giving her the ability to concentrate on a task and see it through to its conclusion. The discipline that is taught in the dojo in regard to uniforms, customs and techniques often translates into other areas of life, including school and household chores.


Our school and what we teach is all about respect.  Throwing, controlling,choking and locking are all secondary to the respect that is shown form the moment you walk into our dojo. Children learn to bow to the teachers who came before them, and to their current instructors. They also learn to treat other students as they wish to be treated. Our world class martial arts instructors press upon the respect issue regularly and instruct our students to practice respect for self, parents, teachers and peers at every opportunity.

Self Confidence

A child who is involved in our Little Champions program is generally a child who is or becoming confident in herself. Working through our Little Champions curriculum and the belt ranking system gives a child measurable goals to follow that are realistic to attain. The sense of accomplishment a child feels by mastering a new technique or graduating to a new belt follows him everywhere he goes.
