Kids BJJ and MMA
With the increased knowledge of the detrimental effects of bullying, the anti-bully movement is currently in full-effect. Both researchers and parents alike are working toward an answer to the bully phenomenon. At Wrecking Ball MMA, we believe that by instilling attributes such as confidence and leadership into our youth, as well as the ability to negotiate one’s situation using words rather than fists, we can put a serious dent in bully activity! Too often, children find themselves in the position of both the bully and the bullied as a result of fear. For the bullied, they are often picked on for appearing “weak” or not standing up for themselves in a moment of confrontation. For the bully, their actions are often overcompensation for their own fears. In the kids MMA program, we teach the necessary skills for students to defend themselves if need be, while also teaching them verbal skills to be able to avoid conflicts. It is also a great program for young students to jumpstart their way into martial arts competition as well! Like the adult program, the kids MMA program features classes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing, and Mixed Martial Arts.
Through hard work and determination, youth students can also earn stripes and belt promotions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at Wrecking Ball MMA to signify their progress. Coach Justen Hamilton is a certified Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor under professor Dave Rosenmarkle of Gracie Veneration. Belt promotions will be given based on attendance, work ethic, skill development, and competition.
