WE HELP YOU RAISE CONFIDENT KIDS

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the most popular and fastest-growing martial art in the world right now. It has been established as one of the most effective combat styles, making it the perfect tool to instil future-ready resilience in our children.

 WHY BJJ FOR KIDS? 

BJJ is similar to our natural movements and innate self-defence skills. Like tiger cubs that practice sparring before leaving the safety of their mother, we humans practice fighting when we are young, pliable, and less likely to hurt one another, and ourselves. BJJ works within the natural instincts we are all born with. It operates predominantly on the ground where it shines above all other martial arts.

EMPOWERING COMPETITIVE KIDS

At Carpe Diem, we empower kids through healthy competition, equipping them with life-changing skills. Competing can be brilliant in building your child's confidence, from teammates telling them they've done great to accepting new challenges and accomplishing new goals. Competition isn't just about winning; no matter how great they are, they will experience losing at some point. We make sure they do in a safe environment, learning how to cope with failure, being gracious in defeat and controlling emotions.

 

To support the kids that want to take their Jiu-jitsu to the next level, we have created a weekly Competition Class focused on sparring. Furthermore, once a year during the summer break, we organise a competition exclusive to Carpe Diem kids.
