Miles Kirby

Miles Kirby is the Head Professor and Co-Founder of Profectus Columbia alongside Professor Jeremy Akin. 

Our kids program is open to children ages 3 and up. Kids are divided in age-appropriate groups, unique to each location. Classes are designed to help our students develop balance, reflexiveness, flexibility, and coordination. Our program promotes self-esteem/confidence, discipline, growth mindset development and compassion. Rather than having to rely on their size or strength, our students learn to use leverage and technique. Classes are taught in a positive and fun environment to encourage students to enjoy learning the art, as well as the sport of Jiu-Jitsu. While we never push or force students to compete, it is absolutely encouraged and nourished when the child themselves show interest!
