Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Kids Enhancement and Overall Performance

Jiu Jitsu for kids
in Clearwater

We teach kids discipline, self-defense, and high self-esteem from an early age. You raise a more rounded child for a better world with Jiu Jitsu for kids.

At Gracie Barra Clearwater, your children are top priority in our Jiu Jitsu for kids classes.

We ensure that our training environment is kid-friendly and safe so they can have an enjoyable time growing and developing.

Staying Active

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for kids is tailored specifically for kids’ training activities. Whether your kids are the hyperactive outgoing type or the more conservative home-body type, we meet them wherever they are. Your active child has somewhere to exercise all that boundless energy, and your inactive child learns to become engaged and stay active.

Self-Defense Skills 

The self-defense skills learned at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for kids can never be unlearned. It’s a massive investment in the life of any child. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be passed on from one generation to the next, and every child learns to defend themselves against any type of attacks and eventualities. The self-defense skills ensure kids have a much higher chance of surviving unscrupulous thugs.

Confidence Through Life

One main benefit of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for kids is the transformation from a shy, introverted child to someone who walks tall and comfortable in his own skin. The discipline teaches kids to be bold, careful, and fearless. They take this attitude through life with a substantial boost to mental health that will always push for physical health.

Conflict Resolution

Whatever forum kids are involved in, there is always the potential for conflict. Jiu Jitsu training is big on conflict resolution. Instead of getting into a fight or any sort of fracas, the kids learn self-control and peaceful resolutions to those heated moments that surface from time to time. 


Quite often, conflict arises due to “bullyism.” We see this in schools so often. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for kids is quite aware of the discomfort bullies inflict on other children. We do intensive bully proofing sessions with our kids on how to overcome bullies and difficult situations. They learn courage and perseverance that are needed to be successful in life.

Life-Long Habits of Physical Health

This arm of Martial arts trains kids to physically take care of themselves right through life. It becomes a life-long habit that will ensure kids grow healthily and lessen the potential for lifestyle illnesses.


With passion and drive for the sport, kids can have fun entering competitions and grow into mastery of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. At this point, their respect for discipline is optimized. They would have learned leadership qualities and teamwork to participate in a successful tournament.

We are committed to the kids who are members of the Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We pride ourselves on delivering the best quality training for every child, so they walk with unshakable confidence to go and conquer their own world.

So go right ahead and sign up for our Jiu Jitsu for kids classes. It’s an investment in your kids’ life that is impossible to regret.

Offering 2 classes per week, 1 hour long.

This program offers some additional class variation with competition and No Gi classes in addition to the Gi classes.

The Advanced Kids program is vital to a student’s transition from youth programs to adult programs. Instructors have higher expectations of their students’ practice ethic in these classes and healthy competition is encouraged as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle, diet and school career.

Generally, once students are 13-16 years of age, depending on their skill/experience level and size, they will be transferred into the adults’ programs, which offers many more class times and training partners (of all ages, many teens in these classes!). This transition is discussed on a case-by-case basis with your instructor and your child.
