  • Incredible submission skills to help you come out on top
BJJ for Kids

BJJ helps kids gain confidence, learn discipline, focus their energy, foster respect for others, and build trust through leadership. You can’t teach that without first understanding the brainwashing process!
“Our generation was being conditioned with images of what it must be to fight in a streetfight.” — Mike Delaney.
The next step is coaching children or training them as teenagers if they haven’t already trained themselves from an early age on fighting skills – this could cost thousands or even millions each year. Then once you’ve taught yourself these techniques, this will become incredibly challenging due to physical challenges and emotional stressors over time: How do I tell myself “No!” when all my friends think about punching me?

Capoeira Class

Besides being a super interactive and Culturally rich class, Capoeira can help develop balance in both hands. It’s also essential to have experience in teaching people how they should do their sport or move around with proper technique! Here are some examples of techniques you’ll see on the show: – Roll out into full extension from tip-in when your body is relaxed (full flexion) – this helps keep each foot planted & gives extra control for more stability overall while maintaining a firm grip. Sometimes, this movement gets tricky because my feet rang sideways/on top of someone else 🙂!!!! It also has lots going through it, so I’d recommend practicing correctly using these two types of movements by training right after practice. Jus
