Please see below for a few tips for parents that will help you assist your child/children in their journey. We understand that parents simply want the best for their children, however it is our experience that in some instances the energy displayed can develop into negative experience for the child participating. It is often the case that children see Jiu Jitsu as simply fun, and do not see the additional benefits such as confidence, discipline and respect. We find this approach the best way to learn and as such we expect children to not feel under pressure from anyone to always win or to perform. We believe that they should just be encouraged to try their best and to have fun. We have found that parents play a large part in the Jiu Jitsu experience for their children and by placing an emphasis on fun and not winning, you can ensure that your child has a long and healthy future in Jiu Jitsu.

Please arrive 20 minutes before your first class, this will leave you and your children enough time to prepare for the class. Once the class begins, your child will proceed to the training area where they will meet the instructor. Your child will be given a designated senior student or assistant instructor to assist them through the class.
