The youngest kids we take are age 4. They must be potty-trained, and parents must be willing to attend classes with their children.
Classes for kids age 4-7 and kids 8+. Discounts for families and first responders are available!
Older kids are welcome! We recommend teenagers attend the adult classes, but consider each on a case-by-case basis.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great way for homeschool kids to build confidence, develop self-defense skills, have fun, and make new friends all at once.
Homeschool BJJ classes are discounted, since we feel a calling to provide a more affordable option to support our homeschool families.
The classes will be Tuesday and Thursday from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm starting Tuesday, 8/23/22, and all classes are no gi (no uniform required) – shorts and t shirt or rash guard attire is preferred.
The pricing is $69 per child/month with a discount for multiple siblings, and you can also try a free class to see if your child enjoys BJJ!
Professor Ryan and his wife Jessie are a homeschool family with four girls. We look forward to connecting with you and building friendships in the homeschool community! If interested please contact us through our form below

COME SEE WHY WE'RE THE BEST
We love to work with kids. What is our secret? We have a lot of children! 🙂
We find great joy in giving the gift of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to our students. They find it fun, but beyond that, we know they may need it for protection one day.
The best anti-bullying strategy is to give a child the gift of self-confidence and the ability to protect themselves, and both are found in BJJ!
Our instructors are all highly qualified Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners, but beyond that, they all work well with children.
Our instructors constantly observe and help our students so that they understand what is being taught, stay focused on the task at hand, and execute techniques properly.
Kids aren't exempt from tough times — many experience difficulties at school, home, and more.
We want to be a positive force in the lives of our students, which is why we do all we can to foster a positive and fun learning environment.
While we strive to produce disciplined students, we try not to take ourselves TOO seriously.
Speaking of not taking ourselves too seriously, we tend to play a lot of games in BJJ classes. Our students love games as much as they love rolling ("rolling" is the Jiu Jitsu version of "sparring")!
We love play-based learning. It's more than fun — it is an effective style that is proven to keep kids engaged and help them retain more information.
