WHAT IS BJJ?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the most popular and the fastest growing martial art in the world right now. It has been established as one of the most effective combat styles, and holds great fun and challenges for adults and children alike.
WHY BJJ FOR CHILDREN?
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.

Amirul is ‘Mr Nice Guy’ everywhere he goes but do not be fooled. He has been training Brazilian Jiujitsu for almost 10 years and he is an amazing grappler. Amirul is the Head Coach of the kids programme; he takes his years of knowledge and he works to impart them to the next generation. ‘Children executing perfect technique makes me smile’ is something he often tells his friends.
Daryl is the disciplinarian on the mats, just ask the kids in class! Behind his stern face, he is a jovial and lighthearted character that cracks everyone up in the gym. His biggest joy is to see kids grow up and mature in the kids programme. Daryl’s favourite food is Barchormee and he can have it 7 days a week.
Cherith is a BJJ Coach with a Diploma in Child Psychology and Early Education. She is what we call the brains and technique in both Jiujitsu and education. Cherith does not teach, she relates and imparts. Teaching children more than just a job for Cherith, she believes in empowering our children to be confident, so they will do well in everything they aspire to.
Aacus is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner with the National Team and a full time coach. Known to be a perfectionist on the mats, Aacus spends his time patiently helping his students to become great in Jiujitsu. When he is not geeking out on Jiujitsu, he spends his time hunting for the best foods in Singapore and going to Kinokuniya to look for the most interesting books he can find.
Karmun loves being with young children. One of the first few Blue Belts of Carpe Diem BJJ Singapore, Karmun roughed it out with the boys in the early days of the academy. If anyone knows how to fight someone bigger and stronger, that will be Karmun. Learn to stand up against your giants in life, learn to be like Karmun.
Royal is born with a competitive streak and he is not ashamed about it! Being the best drives him, and naturally, he is all about bringing the best out of every child. When he is not on superhero duties in a gi, he works for an International Bank. We cannot reveal any more details to you for your own safety! KIDDING! Jokes aside, Royal is the coach you will want at your corner in a competition.
