Programs to suit all people

Our Gracie Barra Kids Programme is designed to teach children self-discipline and self-defence with a curriculum tailored by age group.

Kids and Teenagers

Children and teens of all skill levels and abilities will benefit from Jiu-Jitsu classes at Gracie Barra Chorley and Gracie Barra Horwich. Our Gracie Barra Kids Programme is designed to teach children self-discipline as well as providing a unique way to express themselves. Our instructors are trained to interact and offer gentle correction for children and teens who practice the art of Jiu-Jitsu. Children over the age of five can begin their training at either of our Gracie Barra Schools, experiencing the true power of brotherhood and integrity.

Our GBK programme is structured similarly to adult courses, with adaptations and modifications made to reach the different age ranges in the class. Jiu-Jitsu classes for children begin with the building blocks that are needed to teach the fundamentals of Jiu-Jitsu. We have developed a curriculum that is structured in a way that shows children and teens the value of routine, cooperation and self-awareness.

Gracie Barra is proud to offer Jiu-Jitsu classes that provide children of all ages real-world benefits. By practicing Jiu-Jitsu, children learn valuable skills they wouldn’t develop from other sports, including coordination, increased focus and concentration, self-defence, goal setting, confidence and fitness.

Practicing Jiu-Jitsu at either of our Gracie Barra schools helps children and teens release their energy in a healthy and productive way. Our certified instructors teach children to focus their attention on one task at a time, honing their abilities and developing critical thinking skills. When children learn how to do this, they’ll see a gain in their overall fitness level.

The Gracie Barra Brotherhood provides kids and teens with a sense of community. We are organised like a team, but fight together like a family. This philosophy helps our students build trust and leadership skills with every class. All of our Gracie Barra Schools help children learn valuable life skills that can be used both in and out of the classroom.

By joining our Gracie Barra Chorley or Gracie Barra Horwich team for Jiu-Jitsu classes, children can experience a fitness program like no other. Kids and teens alike will enjoy a boost in confidence, better focus and critical self-defence skills.
