The Gentle Art
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was designed for the smaller person, making it the perfect for children. By controlling an opponent’s movement rather than using force against an opponent (kicking or punching), BJJ teaches children the importance of deescalating situations that arise rather than escalating the aggression of their opponent. This skill could have profound effects on how your child deals with bullies at school and keep them safe in physical encounters.
Sport and Self-Defence
Jiu-Jitsu has two major, intertwining branches – self defence and sport, both which have immense value. Self defence training instils a physical reassurance, helping us feel safe – a state in which we can be our most creative and focused. For any child dealing with bullying, we provide the tools to put a stop to it. Meanwhile, sport training provides the same physical confidence with the added benefits of teaching the principles for success; goal setting, focus, determination, long-term thinking, hard work, plans, mentors, and so on.

WHAT OUR PARENTS SAY
“My son joined OpenMat’s Kids program almost a year ago and the transformation in confidence was immediate. The importance of control while training so as not to injure himself or his partners gives him an awareness of his own strength and teaches him to respect the strength and weakness of others. The program’s teachers inspire focus and success on the mat and in life. Many thanks to the OpenMat Team and its professional and gracious staff”
