JIU JITSU PROGRAMS

Adult Jiu Jitsu

Our Adult Jiu Jitsu program is for beginners to advanced practitioners and competitors. Our beginner curriculum focuses on fundamental movements, concepts and positions, while our advanced curriculum does deep dives into techniques to help students follow their own creative and athletic intuition and further develop their own unique game.

Children’s Jiu Jitsu

Our “Kid’s Crew” program for ages 3-13 focuses on character building, self-defense and technical Jiu Jitsu training, covering fundamentals from take-downs, positions, and transitions, to age appropriate submissions and competition skills. We do this in a cooperative and respectful environment of fun and learning!

Private Lessons

Private and semi-private lessons are a great way to accelerate your learning, gain insight and break through plateaus. Students are encouraged to define a goal or problem, explore new skills, tactics and strategies, or incorporate the more ineffable aspects of 
Jiu Jitsu into their game.

KIDS PROGRAMS

JIU JITSU MINIS | AGES 3-4

Our youngest students’ program targets awareness and increased coordination, improvement in children’s vestibular system and comfort with multiplanar and directional movement, following 1-2 step directions that includes use of their body, working with other people’s bodies in a safe way, focused attention, and HAVING FUN with others. We also target the primary movements and skills/terminology of Jiu Jitsu to prepare for our Little Roller’s program at age 5.

LITTLE ROLLERS | AGES 5-8

Our younger students receive technical Jiu Jitsu training, covering fundamentals from take downs, positions, and transitions, to age appropriate submissions and competition skills. Throughout class each month, the students continually review the importance of teamwork, focus and the value of the month.

JUNIOR GRAPPLERS | AGES 9-13

Our older students follow a tailored curriculum, based on Impact’s current Blue Belt Curriculum for adults. The curriculum was designed at Impact by Impact and supports preparation for Blue Belt eligibility at age 16 and requires significant knowledge of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This program supports basic and advanced BJJ techniques and offers tournament preparation.
