Kids & Teens Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Our Children’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Program at GB Jupiter was created to provide an environment that allows your child to experience and understand core values around focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect – all through the principles of BJJ teachings.

To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that allows for perseverance and goal attainment. As a contact sport, Gracie Barra Long Island provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature into a real life champion.

The outcome of continued childhood practice of GB BJJ goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behavior at home and at school.
Our Children’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program which is referred to as our “GB Kids Program” is divided in three different groups to accommodate students of different ages and skill levels:

• Little Champions I (3-6 years old),
• Little Champions II (7-9 Years Old),
• Juniors & Teens (10-14 years old).

• Learn Anti-Bully Techniques
• Build self-esteem, assertiveness, and awareness
• Maintain discipline within themselves and with others
• Coordinate their bodies, memorizations, and thoughts
• Achieve better focus on their priorities
• Use their creativity and applied thinking with Jiu-Jitsu moves on the mats
• Set goals for short and long-term achievements
• Show respect for themselves, parents, teachers, and friends
• Defend themselves with moves that ensure their safety and control

When you first arrive to the school our staff will welcome you. We ask if you can please arrive 15 minutes before class your children and you have enough time to prepare for practice. The will start on time and your child will be asked to walk to the training area where the instructor will be waiting for him or her.

One of the senior student or assistant instructor will be assigned as a helper to assist your child in performing the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu drills and techniques. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch the entire practice.



Try our Martial Arts Program in Jupiter and see for yourself. What are the principal qualities of a great fighter? What does it take for an ordinary person to realize his or her own potential through martial arts?

Gracie Barra’s GB1 Fundamentals Program is tailored for the beginner Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. Our martial arts program in Jupiter uses self-defense and jiujitsu to build a solid foundation for our Brazilian jiujitsu program which will focus on the essential jiujitsu techniques and concepts.

The GB 1 Fundamental Class is built for both old and new practitioners, weather you are a white belt learning the core techniques for the first time, or a higher rank looking to understand the basics from a different point of view. The fundamentals program will take you to the next level in a systematic and proven martial arts curriculum. Its structure condenses an immense diversity of Brazilian jiu-jitsu into core fundamental moves combined intelligently and safely to optimize your learning. We will outline exactly what is needed to progress from white to blue belt in our academy.

Looking for more advanced programs?

What comes after mastering the fundamentals? What is next on the Jiu-Jitsu journey?
While the Fundamentals Program focuses on the building blocks and basic principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Advanced Program is built on high-level techniques and drills that start shaping the students game flow through the development of reflexes, speed and reaction time as well as transitions between one technique and another.

After a few months in the GB Advanced Program students typically experience a deeper involvement in GB’s philosophy, a stronger bond with training partners as well as more discipline and commitment to healthy habits that keep them in good shape.

Advanced Program classes are based on a defined class structure and curriculum that take a broad and open-minded approach, incorporating techniques from different grappling styles like Wrestling, Judo, Sambo, and, of course, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This is where you will begin No-gi training as well.

It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.

Can someone master Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? Is there an end to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey?
The Gracie Barra Black Belt Program is the last stage in GB’s adult program structure. While it does represent the student’s arrival at the ultimate level of training in our school, it also represents a new beginning.

The goal of this program is to further develop the student’s BJJ game flow by exposing him or her to cutting edge Jiu-Jitsu techniques and their variations. The program’s dynamic curriculum and classes, followed by hour-long live training sessions, build a challenging yet safe environment for students to progress from their blue to black belts.

It is in the Black Belt Program that most students truly grasp what they’ve been told since being white belts: Jiu-Jitsu is an endless journey of daily accomplishments that always leads to a new challenge. The same old arm-bars, triangle chokes, fireman carries, Kimuras, sweeps, guard passes and single leg takedowns gain new meaning as their BJJ game flow is defined.

Gracie Barra students enrolled in the Black Belt Program are role models at our schools. The responsibility of sharing GB techniques and training philosophy with newer students is taken seriously. They play a key role in maintaining a safe, friendly and progress-oriented environment at our school.
