What Your Child Will Learn in SBG's Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes
Spidermonkeys (Ages 4 to 5)
Our Spidermonkey program is all about introducing our youngest students to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
SBG's Spidermonkey program teaches basic and essential athletic and
grappling skills to our students, as many of them are engaging in sports or
extracurricular activities for the very first time. Classes are 45 minutes
in length and consist of fundamental Jiu Jitsu movements, postures, and
At 4 and 5 years old, these students are not expected to learn or execute
high-level Jiu Jitsu movements and submissions, but rather use their base
(balance), leverage, and momentum to control grappling situations.
Students who learn these skills are well-prepared to deal with potential
real life bullying situations, in addition to applying their new athletic
skill set to other sports and activities.
chimpanzees (Ages 6 to 8)
This group of Growing Gorillas really begins to focus on the detailed aspects of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In addition to obtaining and escaping from dominant positions, our Chimps begin learning multiple submissions, passes, and sweeps from every possible scenario.
This is the age group where you'll really start to see Brazilian Jitsu Skills start to come together as a coherent, intentional strategy with students beginning to grasp more advanced concepts that apply to scoring in sport Jiu Jitsu as well as self defense applications.
There are 2-3 coaches on the mat with our Chimps, and classes are 60 minutes long.
jr. gorillas (Ages 9 to 13)
The Jr. Gorillas age group is starting to prepare for transition into the adult classes and all of the advanced Jiu Jitsu techniques, strategies, concepts, and scenarios that will be covered at that level.
There are 1 or 2 coaches on the mats with our Jr Gorillas, and classes are 60 minutes in length.
Micro Monkeys (Ages 3 to 4)
In terms of technique, our biggest goal with the Micro Monkey Jiu Jitsu students is showing them how to get on top of their opponent and stay on top of their opponent, as well as how to escape if that situation were to happen to them.
Micro Monkey classes are 30 minutes long – long enough to teach important concepts but not so long that they start to get antsy and restless (which results in them running around like maniacs).
As for progress, there are 3 tiers of skill in our Micro Monkeys class, which are represented with different color t-shirts.
Spider Monkeys (Ages 5 to 6)
Once they've achieved a position, our Spider Monkey students are now learning about the next steps they can take, whether it be a sweep, pass, or submission.
Spider Monkeys wear a gi and follow the traditional belt ranking system of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Belt promotions are earned through attendance and showing improvement in their skillset. There are 2 coaches on the mat for all Spider Monkey classes.
Classes are 45 minutes long in length.
