Kids training at Rilion Gracie Jiu-Jitsu of Miami Lakes offers Gi and No-Gi classes. Our kids programs are separated into three age groups:
After age 13 we encourage a smooth transition for teens to train in the Adults classes, as their physical size, motor skills and attention to instructions relates more to material taught in the Adults program.
The children’s program at Rilion Gracie Jiu-Jitsu of Miami Lakes offers free trials to those interested in joining the Academy. An introduction to Jiu-Jitsu class is offered twice a week for absolute beginners. This class teaches the basic movements of Jiu-Jitsu and general etiquette on the mat.
For Ages 3-5 the emphasis is on learning gross motor skill movements and techniques. Engaging the opponent with big controls, learning takedowns and learning how to keep the opponent controlled on the ground.
For Ages 6-8, further development of basic Jiu-Jitsu skills, learning more detailed controls using grips and learning submissions.
For Ages 9-13, learning more techniques, controls and submissions which involve fine motor skills and grips.
