We take a different approach with our kids program at V.O.W. BJJ. Kids 12 and up can attend all classes available on the schedule. At this age, kids are very capable of following the technique and instruction just as adults would. Working with other adults and kids their age or older, reduces the learning curve and creates a much more efficient learning experience.
In general, kids at this age require more one on one time to maximize their learning. We offer private sessions with up to two kids at once (or more depending on instructor). You will be able to choose your instructor and create a schedule that works best for both of you. A session will range from 45 min to an hour. This is an excellent way to learn jiu jitsu and allows lots of one on one training instead of getting lost in a big class. The learning curve again is much faster teaching this way and will maximize their learning of JiuJitsu techniques, etiquette, and philosophy. Please contact us directly for more detail.
If private sessions is not an option, we offer access to all classes, but children must be accompanied by an adult. A parent or adult will need to accompany their child during any regular adult class. Meaning, that person will be working the technique with their child in the class. Parents would not need to be members to participate. We do offer family packages if parents decide they want to start their Jiu-Jitsu journey with their kid(s). We highly recommend that, it's a very rewarding experience for both kids and their parents!
