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

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.

Building Rock Solid Kids

Leadership Academy’s Youth Program focuses on the physical, emotional and mental well being, as well as the education of our children. It is “Education for Life.” Firstly, we provide our young students with the most powerful defensive skills so they will be ready to stand up against bullies. In addition, we assist our students with the development of characteristics and skills they will need in order to live a happy and balanced life.  Our young pupils develop confidence, discipline, courage, responsibility, and leadership among other important values. We promote non-violent resolutions to conflict.

Leadership Academy’s Youth Program focuses a great deal of attention to the development of self-esteem. A good self-image is the basis of a well functioning, happy and successful child.

Our curriculum integrates physical education and self-defense techniques with conditioning and skill oriented games aimed at improving your child’s coordination, motor skills, agility and flexibility. Every instructor receives training in our unique teaching methodology, enabling them to deliver learning through dynamic interaction with the children, using a variety of approaches that meet the various learning types of individual children, whether visual, kinesthetic or auditory. To learn more about our school set up a free introductory class.

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.

PRIVATE LESSONS

Grand Master Hélio Gracie has stated that the fastest and most efficient way to take full advantage of Jiu-Jitsu techniques and all its intricacies and details is by taking private lessons.  He personally designed a curriculum that enables any individual to become physically independent in only 36 lessons. This program teaches the elements to defend against any possible attack standing up or on the floor, grappling or striking. Grandmaster Hélio’s self defense program has been utilized and perfected for over 80 years.

During private lessons you will learn a number of techniques against all types of street aggressions including bare hand, club, knife and gun attacks.

After only few private lessons a student will possess the knowledge and reflexes necessary to realistically improve the chances of defending him or herself in a real street fight.
