RAISE THEM RESILIENT
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 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.
KIDS CAMP • JUNE 2022
Starting Saturday, 28 May 2022, we will be running a 4-week training camp to help your children rebuild friendships and bonds that have been interrupted in the past few years.
Each week your children will learn a different set of skills.
WEEK 1: SOCIALISATION
With socialising at a near halt during the pandemic, our children’s social muscles have atrophied. We have to re-train our children to be with others again, allowing them to interact in bigger groups, readjusting slowly.
WEEK 2: MENTORSHIP
Most kids idolise their older peers. Knocking down age barriers in friendships allows older children to take on mentoring roles and encourages younger children to challenge themselves.
WEEK 3: EMPATHY
Children are born with the capacity for empathy, but it needs to be nurtured throughout their lives. Our ambition is to encourage their compassion for each other, help them understand who are different or struggling, and discuss ethical dilemmas to appreciate different perspectives.
WEEK 4: TEAMWORK
Learning to work as part of a team will help your child hone many social skills, such as patience, empathy, communication, respect for others, compromise and tolerance. It also helps them develop confidence in themselves and trust in other people.
After completing the 4-week camp, all participants will receive a completion certificate and a Friendship Summer Camp badge they can proudly wear on their BJJ uniform. It is not mandatory to come every day, but we encourage frequent attendance so that your child can pick up and retain the skills and techniques taught during the camp.
WATCH OUR KIDS IN ACTION
MEET OUR PASSIONATE INSTRUCTORS
We're a team of makers, thinkers and explorers. We approach BJJ with curiosity and experimentation, using what we learn to help your child develop confidence, resilience and discipline. Last but not least, our in-house child psychologist makes sure everything we do is rooted in science.
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.
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.
