The Academy Kids Program at Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge is a specially designed program for children aged 4 to 8 years old. These 45 minute classes will incorporate techniques from Muay Thai, Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling. The priority here will be more on learning discipline, respect, listening and paying attention in a fun and engaging environment than technical details We use a variety of drills and games that teach the children techniques from some of the most respected Martial Arts/Combat Sports in the world. Uniforms, with belt levels, will be used as a part of this program. Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge uses the IBJJF Children’s Monthly System for belt graduations. In this case, a child attending classes 3 times/week could be given a new promotion every month with a maximum belt color of Yellow/Black at age 9 years old. At that point we can advance them to the the Yamasaki Youth Program of their choice (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai or both) which is more focused on technical details and competition training.
Membership costs will vary depending on the number of classes taken.
