What a great way to promote health and discipline, while also learning life saving techniques. As your child mentally develops and builds self esteem, this Martial Art will teach your child morals that will last a lifetime.

This fast growing Martial Art, which became nationally famous in the Ultimate Fighting Championships in the mid 1990s, is an excellent way to show your child self defense techniques while also building confidence as they learn. Not only is Minnesota Top Team's youth Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Class a great way to learn self defense, but it also instructs your child how to subdue and submit the much larger and stronger opponent if a life threatening situation is at hand. What a better way to stay in shape, while also learning fun and new defensive techniques as they master the art of Jiu Jitsu.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu evolved early in the 20th century from Kodokan Judo. This time honored Martial Art specializes in: wrestling, ground fighting, and also submission techniques. Although a great form of physical fitness, this Martial Art excels in: joint locks, choke holds, and also ground techniques for submitting their opponent should it be necessary.

Self defense techniques are broken down into easy to learn steps such as: striking, grappling, and ground control to submit the opponent. The guard position, side control, and the ground phase are also taught to the youth, which helps to promote confidence when submission is required for self defense.

The focus of this Martial Art is teaching the young adult to overcome a much larger opponent. Not only does this teach respect, but it also increases your childs self image, and respect of others. While the young adult builds character, our youth Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class instills integrity in your child as they test for different ranks of belts as they begin to perfect their style of Jiu Jitsu.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is also helpful in increasing the focus of the young mind, which promotes confidence as they practice and perform different types of techniques. Now with a healthy sense of pride, your child will begin to develop into a confident young adult which will aide them in all of their future endeavors.
