"My kids absolutely love it here. Thank you for being a great role models for my children!" - Kathy, Hawthorne
At the Nino Schembri Jiu Jitsu Academy, we pride ourselves on having an excellent kids jiu-jitsu program. We strive to teach your children more than just martial arts, but also the life skills needed to succeed in life. Here are the values we maintain throughout our Jiu-Jitsu for Kids Program:
Above all else, we emphasize treating other with respect, courtesy, and dignity. Even in the toughest situations, we teach our kids to remember to always be respectful and polite.
During kids classes, the students will be required to focus while the instructor is teaching the class. In addition to improving their jiu-jitsu skills, they will also improve their focus in all areas of their lives: at school, at home, and in their everyday lives. We realize jiu-jitsu might only be a small part of their routines, but improving their focus can be beneficial in many other aspects of a child’s life beyond the mat.
We work to ensure every child in our classes are not only improving their jiu-jitsu skills, but also their self-confidence in life. Throughout their training, they will be able to realize how to reach their dreams through hard work and dedication. Jiu-jitsu will help improve their self-confidence in stressful situations, and also their physical confidence in case they need to defend themselves.
Jiu-jitsu is a skill which requires patience in every training session, and also over the many years it takes to master the art. For children, this can be an invaluable lesson in preparing them for their life journeys. At our academy, we work to instill lessons of patience throughout our kids programs.
Another wonderful benefit of our kids program is the opportunity to create lasting friendships with other students. Whether your child is more reserved or very outgoing, they will be able to constantly work with other students improving their communication and teamwork skills. Our instructors ensure each child has an enjoyable and memorable experience while interacting with the other students.
And finally, we strive to help each child gain a strong sense of perseverance to successfully overcome challenges which they will encounter throughout their lives. Jiu-jitsu is much more than simply learning to defends oneself. It is a way of life that promotes health and happiness through hard work and life-long learning.
