Spider Monkeys Jiu Jitsu (5-6 years old)

Spider Monkeys Jiu Jitsu (5-6 years old)

Today, the prospect of raising a respectful, confident, active child can feel daunting. It was always a tall order but today there are even more pressures on children and parents pulling them from an active lifestyle and self-assured communication. If this rings true, then the Spider monkeys Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class for 5-6 year olds at SBG Athens is here to help.

Our Growing Gorillas kids martial arts program is designed to build the physical and mental tools to make your child more athletic and confident both on our mats and in life. They will also learn the techniques and skills that will make them better equipped to defend themselves and confidently avoid an unwanted confrontation. You can expect a child committed to our class to become stronger and more athletic over time as we involve them in healthy activities and teach them positive competition. In the Spider monkeys BJJ Class for 5-6 years olds children learn the basics of dealing with bullying, balance, coordination, as well as fundamental takedowns and positions.

In addition to the physical benefits, we integrate teaching essential values such as respect, honesty, and commitment into our Life Skills and Youth Enrichment curriculum. It is important to us that students in our martial arts classes can demonstrate good behavior and judgement at our academy, school, and home. As some of our coaches are themselves parents (with their own children in our program), we realize that a child needs to be encouraged to grow not just athletically, but as a person. You should see improvements from your child in both behavior and conduct as they progress through their training.

All our kid’s martial arts coaches are homegrown; meaning they have been with Head Coaches Adam and Coach Rory Singer from when they first tied on their white belts. They have passed multiple background checks and completed hours of instruction on the mat and in the classroom to provide the best experience to our students. They are committed to the safety and development of your child into a capable and respectful athlete.

Our program will also help teach your child about hard work and dedication. Our ranking/belt system is based off time on the mats as well as comprehension of the material. Everything here is earned as we don’t charge any belt testing fees common at many other martial arts facilities. Keeping on the topic of belts; Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is different from many other martial arts insofar as a person must be 18 to earn a BJJ Black Belt.

Many of our student’s parents view our coaches as partners in helping mold their kids into amazing young adults. We take that honor very seriously and cherish that partnership. Here at SBG Athens, we also provide opportunities for teaching our youth about giving back and community service. We do this because we realize that martial arts are only part of our mission. Whether it’s organizing road cleanups or collecting food and toys for those in need; we hope to inspire you and your family to be the best you can be both on and off the mats.

We never take for granted the opportunity to team up with parents to help mentor their children as they become adolescents. We look forward to meeting you and your family when you schedule your child’s free class.
