They will also get to nurture key social and emotional skills while engaging in activities that require cooperation, self-awareness, and communication with peers. Older kids in the Lil’ Champion class (5-8yo) will have a chance to build up their stamina and endurance while developing fine and gross motor skills, spatial awareness, coordination, balance, agility, flexibility and sport preparation. Those in the Teen Warriors class (8- 12yo) will focus on the precision and the detailed execution of the techniques while building their core stamina and strength.
The academy has even launched yoga classes for parents during selected kids classes so that parents can get a good stretch and a workout while waiting for their kids to finish their lessons. More adventurous parents can even join the academy’s adult BJJ classes on the weekend to pick up some practical combat skill for themselves during the hour of the kids class.
