Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Kids

Kids Program (6-9 years)

At Melbourne Jiu-Jitsu Academy our kids program focuses on making self-defence and physical education fun. We use conditioning and skill-oriented games to engage and challenge kids. 

The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu kids’ program is not just about the physical benefits for your child. It will also teach them valuable life skills such as confidence, courtesy, focus, discipline, teamwork, mental strength, and self-control.

Our kid’s self-defence program has been carefully developed over several years by owner and 1st degree black belt Ivan Voronoff. Ivan has over 13 years’ experience practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu here in Melbourne, around the country, and in Brazil. He has been teaching kids programs in Melbourne for 7 years. In his classes he focuses on balance, posture, co-ordination and body position.

Your child will be equipped with a number of non-violent strategies to deter bullies, without becoming one.

Program Goals:

  • Learn self-discipline and build confidence
  • Develop respect for instructors and peers
  • Improve coordination and agility
  • Develop all aspects of training for kids in martial arts; both physical and mental.
  • Develop a love of exercise
