Children's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Children's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a youth martial-arts program that emphasizes close-quarter passive protection and is a great form of exercise. Our BJJ program has matured over a 20-year period since Mr. Berger, founder of Groundgame, began teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to children in 1995 in his Catonsville dojo formally called The Baltimore Judo Club.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an easy style to learn and is unparalleled in effectiveness in comparison to other more traditional martial-arts styles. Our teaching methodology incorporates discipline, lots of physical exercise and is also fun for the kids.

Our Children's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program consists of age specific groups that includes classes for children for ages 3-4, 4-5, 7-9 & 10+. Separating our children into specific classes based on age allows us to teach Jiu Jitsu more effectively and address children's age appropriate needs.

While we encourage our youth students to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for its benefits in exercise and discipline, we understand parents sometimes seek out martial-arts programs as an antidote to school bullying. Our students can easily and effectively restrain a bully, stopping him or her from taking more aggressive actions. At the same time, we’re careful about how much we teach our youngest students: We wait until a student has matured physically and mentally before we teach common jiu-jitsu submission techniques, like arm bars and chokes. Those techniques can cause serious injury (on the part of the bully or aggressor), and in some cases can lead to school suspensions or even lawsuits.

Childhood bullying has become a very serious problem in America. Surveys indicate that one in six children are regularly bullied. Bullying can lead to a loss of self-confidence, depression, despair — or worse, as newspapers have reported repeatedly recently. We want our program to give your child self-assurance that he or she will carry for a lifetime.
