What is BVJJ's kids class all about?

At Bow Valley Jiu Jitsu we believe that every child has great potential inside of them. As instructors we strive to help our kids gain confidence so that they are able to show their full potential and grow into self sufficient, confident and kind adults.

Jiu Jitsu is described as 'human chess'. Here at BVJJ our students learn a lot more than just physical skills and self defence. Some of the mental attributes include:

  • Self-confidence
  • Active Problem Solving
  • Discipline
  • Patience
  • Respect
  • Leadership Skills

Additionally, students will learn advanced body awareness as well as:

  • Coordination
  • Flexibility
  • Durability
  • Dexterity
  • Cardio

Here at BVJJ we believe in creating a positive learning atmosphere in the club. This applies to all classes but especially the kids classes. Giving the children a positive area in which to learn and express themselves is our highest priority.
