GBK I (Ages:4-8) • GBK II (Ages:9-14)

What does it take to be a champion in life? Can a kid’s martial art support a parent’s instruction?

To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that gives them perseverance to achieve his or her goals. The Gracie Barra Future Champions Program was created to provide martial arts for children ages 4-14 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect. By teaching antibully, stranger danger as well as self defense the GBK1 & 11 programs are ideal for todays youth.

As a contact sport, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature towards 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 Future Champions Program is typically subdivided in three different groups to accommodate students of different ages and skill levels.

KIDS ADVANCED (Ages:9-14)

The advanced program is for kids that wish to attain a competitive edge in Jiu Jitsu. Gracie Barra provides high level instruction coupled with strength and conditioning designed for young athletes. The Gracie Barra Jacksonville kids are known for being disciplined, tough and technical. By utilizing these principles they have won every major tournament in the Southeast. If you are looking to bring your child’s Jiu Jitsu game to the next level, our GBK Advanced program was built for you!

There is no losing in Jiu-Jitsu. You either win or you learn.
