Whether your kid is a martial arts beginner or already has experience in other Martial Arts, Ricardo Almeida’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes promise to deliver benefits above and beyond fitness and grappling.
Hands down, joining RABJJ has been the best decision my boys ever made. The facility is brand new, the coaching staff are amazing but most importantly, the benefits of Jiu Jitsu are remarkable. Strength, focus, stamina, reflexes, coordination and balance have all dramatically improved for both. My oldest says that this program helped him get through the challenging Army Ranger program and it helps my younger one with his wrestling in high school. It's not just a sport , it's a way of life that includes healthy eating and living. As a parent, I am very impressed with the level of respect that is expected and shown both on and off the mat. The students like that and look forward to going to the classes. I look forward to taking them!NANCY W
Unlike other martial arts which teach violent punches and kicks, our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program utilizes non-violent holds which are only used as a last option against a physically assaultive bully, while other programs may make children more aggressive, the RABJJ Anti-Bullying Program promotes non-violence through respect, discipline and compassion.
Jiu Jitsu is more than a self defense system. We aim to teach our students not only to defend themselves from bullies but also to instill the key traits of a life time Martial Artist: honor, respect, humility, discipline, perseverance etc. Each week we focus on a different topic such as: goal setting, sportsmanship and self discipline. These are addressed as storytelling at the end of classes.
