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.
SUMMER CAMP 2021
Starting 31 May 2021, we will be running a 4-week training camp to help your children navigate stressful situations and instil future-ready resilience in them.
Each week your children will learn a different set of skills.
WEEK 1: EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE
Research has shown that those with a higher degree of emotional resilience can cope with adversity better.
WEEK 2: HEALTHY RISK TAKING
Many adults think that risk is a bad thing. Healthy risk-taking can build confidence and teach natural consequences.
WEEK 3: PROBLEM-SOLVING
Kids with problem-solving skills manage their emotions, think creatively and persist until they find a solution.
WEEK 4: EMBRACING MISTAKES
When we embrace and even study our errors, we learn more.
After completing the 4-week camp, all participants will receive a completion certificate and a summer camp badge they can proudly wear on their BJJ uniform. It is not mandatory to come every day, but we do 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.
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.
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.
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.
