Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a perfect activity for kids


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) isn’t just for adults. In fact, it’s the perfect activity for your children!

The BJJ kids class is a fun filled introduction to the basic elements of BJJ, lots of energetic games, team and confidence building. A great way to starting your young ones in Martial Arts.

BJJ is considered one of the best martial arts for kids as it will empower your children with self-defence knowledge, and give them the ability to protect themselves and those around them.

Our Jiu Jitsu classes for kids are typically divided in two age groups to accommodate students of different skills and learning levels:
– 5-7 years old
– 8-10 years old

As children progress and their knowledge increases, they develop a competency in maintaining specific control positions and applying submissions in a safe manner. This, in turn, increases their confidence as they improve in a fun yet challenging environment.

Safety first!

The majority of the action in jiu-jitsu occurs on the ground and does not involve strikes such as punching or kicking. Our classes are specifically designed for children within different age groups to avoid significant weight differences or skill levels.


For those interested in testing their own ability to use these new skills, there are regularly held competitions in Perth which are organised by a number of associations, including IBJJF and SGT. Once a child is ready, they work with their coach to finetune these skills and prepare themselves for the unique energy of a competition match.

Competition matches are an excellent opportunity to develop mental and emotional resilience in a challenging environment. Supported by their coach, teammates and family, it creates a healthy environment of adversity and growth which children can use to further develop their mental, physical and emotional skills for years to come.
