Kid's Jiu Jitsu

The best benefits of children’s martial arts...and then some!

Our kids jiu jitsu program is second to none.  The ability that Urbana Academy has to help guide and develop our youngest members is something that we truly enjoy.  

Our program teaches children respect, discipline, goal setting and self control.  Aside from the mental and emotional growth we look to assist in, we take sincere pride that we teach our youngest members true self defense skills.  

If size mattered, then the elephant would be the king of the jungle.

Our program starts with our Peewee Monkeys (age 4 and up) and Little Monkeys (ages 8-11).   Children younger than 4 may be accepted with approval from an instructor.  In these classes your child will learn many of the same techniques and tactics that our adults learn, but in an environment suited for their learning and need for fun.  Your child will move through the ranks of the children’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu belt system that will set them up to transition to the adult classes when they are old enough.  Children 12 and up are welcome to attend both children and adult classes.   

Whether your child is just starting martial arts for the first time or looking to build themselves further, our kids classes are an ideal place for your child to grow, develop and learn true self defense skills!
