Improve your kid’s life (Therefore  yours, too)

We have kids classes for kids 4-14 years old that provide character development and personal growth that affects every area of life. We will help your child discover their full potential, while still having fun. Whether it’s grappling with self confidence, bully proofing, listening at home or just needing an afterschool activity we offer guidance and a safe environment to facilitate the growth of your children.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu offers many opportunities for individuals to learn from, but at its core the class must be entertaining so that a child wants to come back and enjoy their time on the mats. This is why we offer a well structured layout to classes while still including motivational tools like games, camaraderie, and promotions. Since BJJ happens with a partner, your child will have the opportunity to train with a multitude of different students and foster a sense of community and build friendships as they go along their martial arts journey.

The variety of movements and patterns we utilize develop functional strength, coordination, flexibility, and control.  In other words, kids will naturally develop skills that help them excel in all sports.

  • Get into great shape & improve functional fitness for all sports
  • Build self-confidence
  • Improve respect, discipline, and self-control
  • Enhance focus and attention span
  • Prevent bullying
  • Meet other great kids

Kids Program Age-based Classes



Ages 4-6

Our youngest group of kids get introduced to jiu jitsu in shorter, 30 minute classes designed to keep them active, engaged, and learning jiu jitsu movements in a fun way.



Ages 7-14

In these 45 min classes, kids are ready to add more complex movements and strategies and they begin to spar more which really advances their skills and improves self-confidence.  They learn that their techniques work even against resisting opponents.

Class is always overseen by a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt to ensure each student is receiving accurate and safe instruction.

Promotions are carried out monthly with guidance about how to get promoted being clearly communicated to the student so they can climb through the ranks. We follow the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) belt promotion system for kids.

BJJ is the martial art used in bully prevention programs that have been praised by Oprah, CNN, and parents worldwide.  Therefore, you can have confidence knowing it’s been used, tested, and evaluated by a wide range of people.

End Bullying

With a focus on de-escalation tactics, confidence building, and defense-focused martial arts, we hope to equip your child with the skills they need to stay safe in our modern age. Chroma Jiu-Jitsu never utilizes kicks, punches, or other violent approaches to conflict. With a focus on first defusing the situation, we teach our children to circumvent conflict and recognize their own personal responsibility as a martial artist. However, should they find themselves in a dangerous situation, our kids are equipped to defend themselves using grip breaks, leverage, and other control based techniques.

Bullying is one of the most serious and consequential social issues in schools today, and it has ripple effects throughout our communities.  For example …

  • 280,000 kids are physically attacked each month
  • Every 7 minutes a kid is bullied on a playground in the US
  • Every year, 3 million children miss school due to bullying
  • 70% of students believe schools respond poorly to bullying and that adult help is infrequent

In short, don’t let your child be a victim – give them the power to end bullying today!
