Kids BJJ

YOUTH BJJ

Our youth curriculum follows the IBJJF belt system of 4 stripes per belt and 3 belts per color. It is very important to us that kids earn their belt, nobody will be handed a belt they have not earned. The work ethic and respect that learning jiu jitsu will teach the children is a life long skill that will benefit them. Our curriculum is based off of competition and self defense jiu jitsu. So if kids need to defend themselves they will be able to, but also if they want to compete at a high level we have some of the best kid competitors in the state for them to train with. If you are looking for a way for your child to develop some self confidence, respect, or discipline all while learning one of the most efficient and effective martial arts out there, look no further. Our youth instructors have over 10 years of teaching youth jiu jitsu specifically. Carlson Gracie Jiu Jitsu is known for being very effective and straight forward. Your children will get the chance to attend seminars with legends of the sport such as Carlson Gracie Jr himself. The best way to see how effective this sport can be in helping your child is to come in and try it out! Everyone will get a free week trial to make sure that our gym is a good fit for your child.

My children love coming to Carlson Gracie. They have fun while learning important life skills with the care and... supportive discipline of their instructors. The instructors are great at leading, teaching, and being supportive of their class. There’s time to learn the basics and time for fun and active games. They provide a perfect combination so the children stay engaged and interested. I highly recommend Carlson Gracie of Grand Rapids. The owners are so kind and caring. I truly appreciate all who work at Carlson Gracie. Keep up the great work!read more

Was looking for a place to train while on vacation and when I came in, the group of guys there were nice and... accommodating. Mike was nice and had me sign the typical waivers and was there for open mat. The place is great because unlike other gyms in open mat, these guys really seemed invested in making sure people were progressing. There were no egos and everyone was really great to roll with. I highly recommend this place to train!!read more

What a great place to learn and roll! I was in town on business and reached out to see if I could drop in to train... while I was in town. Mike, the owner, was very nice and said no problem, love to have you here, and Will did a great job teaching the no gi class and the other students were great in open roll training. I will surely stop in again the next time I am in town for work. Keep up the good work!read more

An AMAZING place to be/train. The instructors are high level, proven competitors and it is clear that they put their... students first. Whether you are looking to compete, get in better in shape, boost confidence, or simply improve quality of life, this is certainly the place to be. The kids program is outstanding with the genuine care of the instructors on display in every moment, seeing how they handle and train all students is nothing less than exemplary. Students and instructors alike make you feel like family. Environment and facility is CLEAN, with awesome mat space (FUJI mats!) and amenities (sauna, child area, large lobby, BJJ and CBD products).read more
