Empowering Kids Through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:

Solid Base BJJ is not just a martial arts academy; it’s a space where children develop essential life skills through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Our dedicated Kids BJJ classes in Southington, CT, focus on building confidence, discipline, and teamwork while fostering a supportive and family-like environment.

What Your Child Can Expect:

At Solid Base BJJ, we prioritize the well-being and enjoyment of every child. Our classes are designed to be engaging, educational, and, most importantly, fun! Here’s a glimpse into what your child can expect:

  • Fun-Filled Learning: Our classes start with a warm-up that includes energizing activities like running, jumping jacks, and various exercises to get the blood flowing. We believe that learning should be enjoyable, and that’s the cornerstone of our approach.
  • Foundational Movements: Ground and floor drills focus on isolated Jiu Jitsu movements, fostering coordination, core strength, and muscle memory. These foundational skills form the basis for your child’s journey into Jiu Jitsu.
  • Technical Mastery: Our experienced instructors guide your child through technical movements, demonstrating techniques and encouraging muscle memory and fluidity. We emphasize repetition and understanding, ensuring your child can seamlessly execute these techniques.
  • Strategy and Tactics: Beyond individual moves, our classes teach children how to connect techniques into an overall strategy. Understanding when to apply defensive versus offensive tactics is a crucial aspect of their development on the mat and is important for children’s self-defense classes.
  • Controlled Sparring: Classes conclude with live training or “sparring” in a controlled environment. This lets your child simulate the learned techniques in a dynamic setting, reinforcing their skills with different sparring partners. At Solid Base, safety and discipline are paramount during sparring sessions.
  • Champion Mentality: Head Instructor Ricardo Oliveira, with a legacy of building champions, is dedicated to instilling a champion mentality in every child. Beyond physical skills, our goal is to leave a lasting legacy of wholesome champions on and off the mats.
