    Warm Up and Stretching
    Children begin each class with a warm up that consists of a variety of exercises, with a focus on core strengthening and jiu jitsu specific movements like shrimping, shoulder rolls, and more. A series of stretches follows the warm ups to increase flexibility and prevent injuries.

    The technique portion of the class is made up of hands on instruction and drilling with a training partner. Each class has it’s own focus, and usually consists of a wrestling or judo inspired takedown, followed by ground grappling moves. This will build coordination, develop fundamental technique, and requires teamwork and cooperation to be a successful training partner.

    Each class is ended with a session of rolling (sparring). Students are paired by instructors based on size, skill, and style to allow them to practice and apply the techniques they have learned against a resisting opponent. This is a detail that sets jiu jitsu apart from many other martial arts. Because of the nature of the art, it is possible to train with a partner at full strength without a high risk of injury. Few other combat systems (if any) offer this opportunity. This prepares the student for a real-life defense situation better than any other practice.
