Brazilian Jiu Jitsu isn’t just for adults. In fact, it’s the perfect activity for kids! When it comes to self defense, BJJ empowers a smaller individual to fight against a larger opponent. But the advantages don’t stop there – BJJ helps kids gain confidence, learn discipline, focus their energy, foster respect for others, and be a part of a one-of-a-kind community full of future friends and mentors!

Kids Gi & No-Gi
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling-based martial art that focuses on techniques to control and submit an opponent through the use of grappling. Checkmat Exeter offers both Gi and No-Gi classes to provide younger students with a well-rounded understanding of the sport.
Gi classes involve wearing a traditional Jiu Jitsu uniform, while No-Gi classes are conducted without the uniform. Both classes offer unique benefits, with Gi classes focusing on improving grip strength and No-Gi classes emphasizing speed and agility. No-Gi classes help to mimic real life scenarios and help equip children with essential self defense skills that could potentially save lives!
