Kids Martial Arts
Many parents place their kids in martial arts with the hopes that it will teach them respect and discipline, others out of concern that their child is being bullied – or even that their child is the bully, and still others because they have fond memories of their own martial arts classes as children. Whatever your reason for looking into Brazilian jiu jitsu for your child, know that we understand that choosing where to go can be an intimidating task.
Our kids program is without peer in Portland. Here at RGAPDX, we know that it is important to train and learn to use your body in a way that not only promotes growth but is also sustainable – which is to say that safety is of utmost importance to us. We take great pride in teaching things like learning to fall without injury and to treat your training partner with respect, how to use leverage to escape from an opponent and defend yourself without punching and kicking, all while having an awesome time.
Our team is always looking for new training partners and we have some of the friendliest, respectful, and fiercest girls and boys around.
