Can a martial art support a parent’s instruction?

Reinforcing Values

Our BJJ school in Washington MO, provides an inclusive and challenging environment that teaches young adults martial arts techniques and real-life skills that they can employ both inside of the school and in real life situations. These classes are structured to help the students become more mature adults.

Our instructors have a longstanding and proven approach to student development, and we are committed to not becoming a belt factory. Your teen will not be pushed through a series of martial arts styled choreography that won’t be useful in actual self-defense situations. At our Washington, Mo, location, your teen will learn self-defense martial arts and real-life skills that can be applied outside of the classroom. We do not charge for belts or tests and students are not required to participate in competitions.

Fun and Challenging

The Gracie Barra Future Champions Program is designed to provide kids ages 7-15 with an environment that enables them to experience and respect our core values of focus, self-confidence, discipline, perseverance, and cooperation. Our instructors take pride in their student’s and team’s accomplishments, and our primary goal is to work with parents to aid in the development of strong, healthy, happy, confident young adults who become exceptional patrons and useful to their communities.

Our Teen’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu courses are split into two age groups comprising of (10-12yrs of age) and (13-15), and are designed in a way that promotes engagement and helps each student progress and grow as a martial artist. Our classes also help students prepare for situations they may face outside of the academy, such as bullying or other physical conflicts.

Discipline and Excellence

Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu provides the perfect atmosphere for teens to grow into mature young adults. Through our structured classes and continued practices, your teen will be given the opportunity to grow into a real-life champion and carry with them lessons from inside the academy that will positively affect their behavior outside of the school.

Located in Washington Mo, our facility is easily accessible for kids and teens throughout the Union, St. Clair, Pacific, Sullivan, Owensville, and St James areas to take on world-class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu just a few minutes away from home.

The First Class

Students need to plan on arriving atleast 15 minutes before class so that they have time to prepare and get into the proper mindset to train. Our classes start on their scheduled times and your teen will need to be on the mat and ready when the instructor is in order to participate in the class and learn the daily Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lessons. We encourage all parents to stay and watch the lessons, or participate in an adult BJJ class themselves!
