Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for 5-12 year old kids

Each Wednesday from 5pm till 6.15pm.

We’ve received quite a few inquiries for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for children.
We are pleased to announce, that we are starting program tailored for children.

Since Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is quite new in Malta, we’re looking to do a 1 class/week.
If the classes generate wider interest, we will consider adding more weekly classes.

Instructors

Antti Alatalo and Sean Chircop will be teaching the classes.
Antti has previous experience teaching Jiu-Jitsu for kids in Finland.
Sean is actively training jiu-jitsu and his daughter is taking part of the kid’s classes.

Location

 

We are centrally located in Gzira, near the church.

Content of the classes

Classes are taught in English.

Classes are a mixture of series of movement exercises that will improve balance, flexibility, and strength. Warm ups are planned in a way, that kids have to work together. In essence, warm ups combine physical activity and problem-solving.

What is needed for the classes?

T-shirt and shorts will be sufficient outfit for the classes. Please remember to cut nails before coming to the class and bring a bottle of water with you.

Is kimono required?

It depends, if your child enjoys BJJ and wants to keep on training, we recommend getting one. The classes are geared towards Gi Jiu-Jitsu.

Where can I get a kimono for my kid?

You can’t buy kimonos locally, but there is an e-commerce site that delivers Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gear to Malta. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu kimonos are very durable, they can easily last 5 years, even with hardcore use. You can check out their collection from link below BjjFightGear Make sure that you buy a white belt with the kimono.

 

Practicing jiu-jitsu techniques

Next portion is the technique part of the class. Children are taught a new technique each class. There will be only two submissions that children are allowed to practice is the armbar and the triangle choke. However, it is worth mentioning that submissions represent only a fraction of the techniques.

 

Sparring

There will be light sparring involved. Sparring is happening under the supervision of the instructor.
