Our kids program is open to children ages 4 and up. Classes are designed to help our students develop the base fundamentals of grappling. Our program promotes self-esteem/confidence, discipline, growth mindset development and compassion. Classes are taught in a positive and fun environment to encourage students to enjoy learning the art of Jiu-Jitsu. While we never push or force students to compete, it is absolutely encouraged and nourished when the child themselves show interest! As you look through our schedule, you will find two age groups for our kids program. The Little Gorillas is for ages 4-7 and The Big Gorillas is for ages 8-13. This split allows us to challenge all our students according to their cognitive and developmental capacity.

Our classes have been carefully designed to push you each day to measurable goals while teaching you how to train safely long term. Through our unique immersion approach and exposure to all levels of training partners early on, you’ll have the opportunity to grow at your own pace while being carefully pushed and encouraged by your new friends on the mat.


Our adult program is open to students of all experience levels and interests. Our classes accommodate all students from beginner to advanced. Whether your goal is to learn self-defense skills, lead a healthier lifestyle, hone technical skills, or compete at the world level, our adult program is designed to help students achieve their goals at their desired pace.
