KIDS JIU JITSU

Straight Blast Gym Buford’s Growing Gorillas kid’s program is a huge reason that we have been voted Best of Gwinnett’s Best Gym and Health Club for the last 2 years!  With kid’s ranging from ages 4 to 15, our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are designed to teach your child THE most effective martial art on the planet for self defense, instill ultimate confidence, and have a ton of fun in the process!   

WHAT IS BRAZILIAN JIU JTISU?

Ever since the first UFC event in 1993, the martial arts world has been transfixed on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and the sport’s ability to allow a smaller person to neutralize a larger opponent.  A skinny, 180 pound man named Royce Gracie was able to defeat 3 much larger opponents in one night by using an (at the time) unknown martial art that used leverage, base, and grappling to neutralize his opponents before submitting them.  Without even needing to throw punches, he was able to overcome his adversaries. Wow!

As BJJ became more and more prevalent in the world of martial arts, parents began to notice that it was the perfect self defense method for their child.  By teaching kids a skillset that can be tried and tested right there in class against other kids, parents could see their children’s faces light-up as they started to understand how Brazilian Jiu Jitsu actually works!

“After I had been training here for a few weeks I brought my son Evan in to do a session with Coach Sean.  It took no time at all for him to start loving it.  He loves learning new things and to be able to compete against the other kids.  He’s made a bunch of new friends and looks forward to going to class every week.”

-Greg (Evan’s dad)

Why is Jiu Jitsu right for your child?

Give Your Kid REAL Confidence To Stand Up To Bullies

It is common knowledge that making sure your child develops confidence is a major key to long-term success in life, not to mention, it’s incredibly heart-breaking to have your kid come home from school in tears and have to hear about how your child is being bullied by his or her peers. Instilling our kids with confidence and a strong will is paramount to them having a successful school career, not to mention giving them a huge head start in a world that values charismatic, resilient adults.

All too often we see kids involved in martial arts where they are given a false confidence, being told that what they are learning should work.  At SBG, we teach our kids techniques and a skillset that does work!  Let’s be honest….when kids get into a physical altercation they don’t throw spinning kicks or fight with swords.  What really happens?  They fall to the ground and grapple!  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu allows for the smaller child to neutralize and dominate a larger opponent by using techniques that they get to practice every week in class.  By letting your kid practice and apply what they are learning during every single class against other kids in class, they will be instilled with the knowledge and confidence that BJJ really does work!

We’re Not A Belt Factory….All Belts Are Earned

At Straight Blast Gym, we are big believers in earning your belt promotions.  While other martial arts are constantly “promoting” their students to the next belt (always with a hefty upgrade fee attached) , we believe in putting in the work before you get the reward.  From a young age, we want to instill the belief that to accomplish something you need to put in hard work.  We believe that belt promotions are earned through more than just showing up for class, but by showing progression on the mats and setting a good example for the other students with their behavior and attitude.

When belt promotions are achieved, there is NO COST TO THE PARENT!  We want both the parent and child to both know that the promotion was earned, not bought, so we cover the expenses involved in all belt promotions

For some of our more advanced kids, we even travel with them and their parents to different parts of the country for competitions!  It is amazing to watch one kids stand on the podium and receive their medal, and to see their faces light up as all of their hard work comes to fruition!

A Fun And Exciting Program That Will Keep Your Child’s Attention and Interest

Kid’s attention spans are short, as every parent has come to realize.  While our Growing Gorillas program is designed to teach your child high level martial arts, discipline, and confidence…we also want it to be fun!  Gone are the days of kid’s being a part of a stuffy dojo where they are forced to stand in silence before throwing punches and kicks in the air.  At SBG, we strive to create an atmosphere where your kid can not only thrive at their sport, but they can have a good time while doing it!

Most parents have found out the hard way that a child’s interest can be fleeting.  By leading an up-tempo class and inviting lots of hands-on participation, our coaches do an amazing job of making the classes challenging and enjoyable, keeping your kids attention and interest.  We boast over a 95% monthly retention rate with our kids…something that very few martial arts schools can claim.

A Place Where The Whole Family Can Train Together

Sometimes it can be hard to get your kid to be active.   In a world of video games and cell phones, a child can find hours of entertainment without ever having to leave their couch or bedroom.  Ultimately this is not a healthy lifestyle, as kids need an outlet to play, move, and get all that energy out!  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is incredibly hands on and each class involves running, gymnastics, and grappling, allowing the coaches to disguise exercise in a fun, enjoyable manner that has your kid sweating, smiling, and learning!

“About a year ago, we wanted to get Liliy involved in something that would teach her some self-defense. She is already doing gymnastics and we thought that jiu-jitsu would compliment her current skill set and teach her some practical, real-life self defense. Liliy loves the coaches here and her tribe of teammates.”
-Katrina (Liliy’s mom)
