Brazilian Ju-Jitsu

Kids Jiu Jitsu (and Teens)

Kids Jiu Jitsu provides children with the amazing benefits of BJJ, instilling in them confidence, resilience and discipline at an early age.

Classes are divided into 4 levels. Kids and teens are grouped into different classes, depending on their age.

Advantages of Kids Jiu Jitsu classes

1 - Prepare your kid to the world

Sense of discipline, hierarchy, and respect. Following their coaches’ instructions and learning about hierarchy will not only change their views of the world, but it will also help them treat others with respect and kindness.

2 - Self-confidence

Dealing with victories and losses promotes self-confidence. Learning new techniques, upgrading belt colours, and winning competition provide kids with a sense of accomplishment. 

3 - Friendship

Jiu jitsu is about integration, and there’s room for everyone! Our kids jiu jitsu classes will have them socialize naturally on the mat during the sport’s practice. Cooperation, partnership, and friendship are formed by learning jiu jitsu.

4 - Self-defense

In our kids jiu jitsu classes, children will definitely improve their self-defence skills, preparing them for adverse situations in their lives.

This was my first gym training back in South Africa. Had a great time with the team there mixed with some lighter and more heavy rolls. Thanks for welcoming me, look forward to visiting again soon.
Amazing training experience, very knowledgable coaching staff with a very friendly environment for new-comers and skilled fighters.
I absolutely love training here. The atmosphere is inviting, energetic and collaborative. The instructors give so much attention and explain and demonstrate techniques clearly, and every class we have the opportunity to apply techniques learned. If I had more time I'd be here every day!
I have just joined the Gracie Barra in Sandton and everyone has been extremely helpful and friendly throughout the process. The classes are top quality covering all the aspects I was looking for, and the facility is top quality as well. I rate the coaches extremely high in all aspects. Honoured to be training at this Barra. Thank you to the whole Gracie Barra Sandton team! Looking forward to many great classes, improving strength, fitness, health, technique and learning new skills.
The gym and the team supporting the gym have been awesome so far. The experienced rollers are all willing to share ideas and promote an atmosphere of having fun while learning. Facilities are always clean and hygienic.
