RGJJ Juniors (9-15)

 ———————————–

This program is a step up from the Little Warriors Program and a stepping stone for the Adults Program, keeping with the key factors of improving their self confidence, focus, coordination, flexibility, attitude, health and self defence skills.


The techniques are given in full detail. The Children will still have games to improve motor skills but less than the little champs classes.


– We will prepare them for their teenage years and adult hood –

Every day in the United States, an estimated 150,000 kids miss school due to fear or intimidation of bullies. In fact, many believe that fear of bullying may be the leading cause of low self-confidence in children. Worse, statistics suggest that less than 15% of kids actually report acts of bullying. We know that most bullies are insecure and seek self-esteem normally by harassing smaller or weaker children. These negative experiences often create psychological trauma that might last a lifetime.

RGJJ Little Champs (4-8)

 ———————————–

This program is perfect for children that need to improve their self confidence, focus, coordination, flexibility, attitude, health and self defence skills.


The classes are very fun with plenty of games to improve motor skills and attention span.


The techniques are taught in slightly less detail then the junior classes, but with 100% enthuses on movement patterns.


The self defense lessons taught in the class range from escaping from and dealing with strangers, bully control and awareness and proven techniques to deal with physical confrontation if needs be.


All techniques in Jiu Jitsu rely on leverage not strength, so this art is perfect for little ones.


– Self defense is a life skill, just as important as swimming –

FIGHTING FOUNDATIONS™

Fighting Foundations™ is a 27 lesson program developed by the Valente brothers under the direct supervision of Grandmasters Helio Gracie and Pedro Valente Sr. Fighting Foundations™ was reviewed and approved by Helio Gracie.

Fighting Foundations™ includes over 100 techniques that could literally save your life during a real street confrontation. This innovative teaching method is an adaptation by the Valente brothers of Grand Master Helio Gracie’s private class curriculum to be used in a group setting. Originally, Grandmaster Helio’s Self Defense system was only taught through private lessons. Group lessons were designed to prepare students for tournaments. At Valente Brothers we developed the FF program in order to allow students to learn Grand Master Helio’s system through group lessons. We are honored by the fact that many prominent academies have decided to follow our lead and create standardized curriculums for group class instruction.

Frequent practice is essential if efficiency is to be gained in the Fundamentals class. The key to learning Jiu-Jitsu is repetition. The ultimate goal is to condition your subconscious  so that you can automatically react in a critical situation.
