Children's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes

1. Confidence takes a while and while you are building it in a students the
bullies are destroying it.
This class is designed for children age 6 to 12 taught by Vinny Brightman, a long time PSDTC student and also a long time Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner and competitor. Children at that age, both girls and boys, for the most part, are taught the Integrated Grappling Systems aspects of the styles involved now a days in the Jeet Kune Do fighting arts. Integrated Grappling Systems, which is the fourth range of Jeet Kune Do is a mixture of Thai boxing and of course, Bruce Lee's fighting methods which is called Jeet Kune Do (which means, the way of the intercepting fist) for the stand up aspects of training and for ground work, they are taught a combination of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Russian Sombo, Shoot Wrestling and Judo with many of the takedowns, positions to submissions. so to explain it a little better, the children learn escapes from all wrestling positions as well as defenses and counters against striking (i.e. kicking or punching). The combination of various grappling styles is the reason for the title given to this method...Integrated Grappling Systems!
Integrated Grappling Systems for children is a less violent but yet still an effective approach to self-defense for the average situations they could possibly stumble upon at that age. For example, if a child has a confrontation, they can easily take their adversary down to any number of holds and/or a submission and usually a lesson will be learned without anyone actually getting hurt at all by controlling their aggressor as opposed to hitting their aggressor. The art and science of striking from Thai Boxing and Jeet Kune Do are also taught to the children for a complete understanding of all ranges that could occur in martial arts. Hitting techniques are taught only to be used in serious self defense situations along with common sense of it's use and of course for a complete exercise program with an all around understanding of the martial arts they are practicing.
A very important part of self defense that is taught in the children's martial art class is they are constantly reminded on child abduction prevention tactics and constantly reminded of what they are taught to do in that type of situation to ensure every child member of the Practical Self Defense Training Center has a complete understanding of self defense beyond just kicking, punching and grappling. (see more on that subject below)
The exercise program at the beginning of the class is a science in itself and designed specifically to create a strong grappler. It is an intense workout that every child can slowly work his way into at his or her own pace. Every child eventually feels much stronger and more alert. It builds confidence as well as coordination due to how powerful; yet efficient this martial art essentially is that they are training in. All parents witness their childs fullest potential brought from within as their self-esteem grows. You will see how they get stronger, their health, both mentally and physically improves. They develop discipline. Which in turn behaviorally habits always improve. The best one yet you get them away from those video games and watching TV for a few hours a week. Statistics show, martial art training is a great start in life for all children.

Many kids may want to go into a martial art program
so they'll learn to kick butt and with the hopes that their instructor
will guide children
there. Many instructors go for this out of pride to make their school
look good! Pride in our school and style is only part of it; I teach kids that the most
important thing they'll learn is respect for others...a trait that can
only be learned by
training in real martial arts. The real ancient martial arts taught at
the PSDTC will build confidence! Another
good trait that is part of the package of learning real martial arts is,
of course, the hands on training and individual attention. There is a well balanced
and good feeling
inside that comes from the cardio workout and coordinating exercises
learned at the Practical Self Defense Training Center!
As you can see these kids are very focused on their training for perfection of technique. They learn timing, rhythm, footwork and how to do grappling without the use of strength! They are developing a real science that will be with them the rest of their lives!
