At Alive Dojo we not only teach kids how to defend themselves but also help them understand the lessons that shape them into confident and respectful young adults. This age breakdown is just a guideline so please speak with the instructors.
Ages 4 - 6: Designed to introduce our youngest students to Jiu-Jitsu and help build coordination. Lots of appropriate fun games
Ages 7 - 12: Designed to help students build a strong foundation and improve their overall understanding of Jiu-Jitsu.
Starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at a young age assists in the development of self-esteem, balance, character and teaching your child the importance of living a positive and healthy lifestyle.
Our Kids Program will also empower your kids to prevent or discourage bullying without violence.
Ages 13 +: Focused on more advanced techniques. Students will cover positions more in-depth and work towards building a more complete Jiu-Jitsu. The minimum requirement is a gray belt and above or special invitation from our instructors. If you are a complete beginner no problem please contact.
This is where we concentrate more on the standing side of grappling in a Gi. We follow the Judo New Zealand syllabus. Our classes cater for those who want to do Judo recreationally as well as those who would like to take part in competition Judo. Our classes are primarily structured to deliver safe and effective Judo skills.
Ages 7 +: Moving into learning some basic throws and building Judo knowledge. Lots of appropriate fun games and learning to fall safely.
We also aim to improve self-confidence, introduce members to new people and offer a level of physical activity that we hope will positively influence other areas of their lives.
BJJ ADULT FUNDAMENTALS
The classes will prepare you for both self-defense and sport jiu jitsu. It will also improve your fitness, balance, and coordination. The fundamental program is designed for anyone, male or female, of any body type, fitness level, or age. Total beginners very welcome. 14+ please contact the Dojo.
BJJ ADULT NOGI
The difference between BJJ (Gi) and NOGI is in the grips. In the stand-up game, the grips provided by the BJJ Gi allow for many Judo-style throwing and submission techniques, while NOGI take-downs resemble those of traditional wrestling. Grips also come into play on the ground. Where the BJJ ground game is methodical and technical, NOGI moves tend to be more fluid and fast-paced. We have found that it is best for the student to know the basic fundamentals of BJJ in order to properly excel in this class. Without the basic knowledge of BJJ, it can create bad habits with your techniques. This class will be added to the timetable when there is demand.
Private lessons are a great way to accelerate progression because they provide a consistent, systematic, and progressive learning environment; allow for more detailed and personalization of techniques; and, offer more schedule flexibility
