The Junior Grapplers’ program teaches your child the “FUNdamentals” of the Gracie Personal Protection Curriculum including how to recognize, avoid, and escape danger. As well as introducing the key benefits of three of the six major skill-related fitness components (agility, balance, and coordination), our Royce Gracie black belt and certified teacher will help develop your child’s concentration, control, and confidence. Your child will have fun learning the basics of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, including stand-up techniques (how to block, punch & kick), take-downs (clinches) and ground grappling (wrestling) games and drills. The Junior Grapplers’ program utilizes the “FUNdamentals” stage of the Long-Term Athlete Development model (LTAD) - developing your child’s physical literacy and preparing them for the Grapplers’ class by familiarizing them with many of the principles in the “Learning to Train” stage.​​

Grapplers (Grades 5-7, approximate ages 11-14)

  
   
The Grapplers’ program encompasses a progressive character development focus while utilizing the principles of the “Learning to Train” stage of the Long-Term Athlete Development model (LTAD). Your child begins to learn the complete Gracie Jiu-Jitsu System - including the core principles and techniques of the Gracie Personal Protection Curriculum. The key benefits of all six major skill-related fitness components (agility, balance, coordination, muscular strength, muscular endurance and flexibility) are incorporated, making the Grapplers’ program a great addition to any young athlete’s overall training and development (i.e., cross training for hockey, baseball, lacrosse, soccer, etc).

Progressing beyond how to recognize, avoid, and escape danger, this class continues to develop the stand-up and take-down techniques, while focusing on ground grappling, personal protection (self-defence) and the philosophy of an Active and Healthy Lifestyle (character). Our Royce Gracie black belt and certified teacher will ensure your child’s concentration, control and confidence dramatically improves as they learn the most complete and effective personal protection martial art the world has ever known.

Utilizing the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) framework, we educate your child on the “Learning to Train” stage while familiarizing them with many of the principles in the “Training to Train” stage. Importantly, your child will develop strategies that will help not only prepare them for the challenges they face this school year, but also nurture life skills that they can build upon and develop throughout the rest of their lives. The modern-day warrior philosophy / virtues (Bushido Code) of Honesty, Integrity, Professionalism, Compassion, Accountability and Respect are taught and reinforced.
