Participants will learn self-defense techniques such as throws and joint-locks while gaining self-confidence and mental discipline. Our YMCA instructors emphasize anti-bullying and sportsmanship. Above all, we want your child to enjoy Brazilian jiu-jitsu and have fun. During the monthly session, we will focus on specific skills and character values.

This session teaches the core fundamentals appropriate for older youth (ages 8-13). Students will learn a wider range of techniques and drills setting the foundation for higher levels of Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Our YMCA instructors have over 25 years of collective experience in both practicing and teaching jiu-jitsu. Matt Palupelelei earned his Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt after years of hard work and dedication. Our other instructors, Sammy, Drew and Sam have earned high-level jiu-jitsu belts and have compted in numerous tournaments both nationally and internationally.
