youth brazilian jiu-jitsu

grappling for 9 to 15 year olds

Tues & Thur 5pm-7pm, Sat 11am - 12pm


The Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program at Yamasaki Academy follows the competition rules and standards set forth by the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF)  as the main reference point for what is taught in classes as well as for ranking and grading students.  We generally will cover techniques specifically for the Sport aspect, but we also incorporate Self Defense and MMA concepts that go beyond the scope of the Sport.   That being said we do not condone the intentional harming or bullying of our teammates or competitors.

While Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is primarily a ground fighting style, all matches start standing up.  As a result, Judo throws and Wrestling takedowns are a part of the curriculum.  We also offer Submission Grappling classes which is basically Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu without the traditional uniform.  In these classes we typically wear shorts and a t-shirt or rash guard and there are no belt ranks. All of our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are taught by our Black Belt instructors, unless for some reason they are not available which is very rare.
