To excel in any endeavor, an individual must possess a strong set of values and a solid character to give him or her the perseverance to achieve his or her goals set. The Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program called Future Champions provides children ages 3-9 with an environment that gives them the experience and understanding of core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect.

Jiu-Jitsu classes can be a fun and exciting activity for children. Our instructors take a fun and dedicated approach to teaching your child the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. While other martial arts schools create a stern and serious teaching environment, that is not the way of Gracie Barra Tyler. Our facility is not just another stern and serious martial arts school that is churning out belts– that is not the Gracie Barra Tyler way. Our classes are structured and passionate, but our instructors understand that it is important for kids to stay true to themselves.

Your child will learn the true art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and the importance of good character values and treating everyone with respect. These values will help them in their daily life, as well as during their journey with practicing Jiu-Jitsu.

Self-Defense Skills

Gracie Barra Tyler is committed to creating the strongest Jiu-Jitsu teams possible. Our team is focused on teaching the highest-level Jiu-Jitsu techniques, and working with parents to develop strong, confident and respectful children who will have the skills to be positive influences in their local communities.

The Future Champions program is divided into two groups: 3-6-year-olds and 7-9-year-olds. Splitting the program into these groups allows our instructors to break the class into smaller class sizes. Smaller class ratios allow our instructors to work one-on-one with your child, and perfect their Jiu-Jitsu techniques. It’s beneficial for children to work alongside kids who are of the same learning level as them, so that they can grow as a team together, and work on their strengths and weaknesses side-by-side.

These classes will focus on strengthening your child’s listening skills, physical fitness, and how to respect others, which are skills that all Jiu-Jitsu Masters possess. Our school offers competition preparation if your child is interested, but it isn’t at all mandatory. The goal of our instructors is to spread the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and help young minds become stronger, more mindful and healthy individuals.
