Sharing Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Central Ohio Since 1992
Little Sharks Ages 4-8
Classes for the Little Sharks are entertaining as well as structured. With this age group we teach jiu-jitsu by almost disguising it in a series of games that develop proper balance, technique and positioning. If your child is having fun they will be engaged, if they are engaged they will learn.
Juniors – Ages 9-14
The juniors class is the bridge from children’s jiu-jitsu to adult level classes. With this age group jiu-jitsu itself becomes the game. Classes are structured in the same way the adult classes are to challenge your child and help their development into young adults.
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the only art that gives you a realistic chance of defending yourself against a larger more aggressive attacker. The fundamentals program is our entry level, white to blue belt curriculum. This course is designed to make the student street ready by the time they reach blue belt. We focus on how to deal with the most common self defense situations with proper strategy, timing, technique and leverage. The student will learn the basic philosophy of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu as well as be exposed to basic competition style techniques.
Our mixed levels program has something for everyone. For the beginner who is proficient in the fundamental techniques this class is the next step. The students will learn more expanded self defense techniques as well as develop the skills to deal with another experienced grappler. This class gives students of all levels to be able to train together allowing the beginners to gain experience with higher level jiu-jitsu practitioners and allow the experienced students to learn how to teach and become mentors.
