“I teach my kids self-defense because I want their ‘no’ to contain more than just hope” (Sean Patrick Flanery).

The kids’ program at Haven Jiu Jitsu is centered around empowering today’s youth through teaching them respect, discipline, focus, self-defense, and the importance of physical fitness through the application of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We give them the tools which are necessary to live a happy and fulfilling life, on and off the mats.

The children’s program is broken up into two different age groups; little warriors (ages 4-6) and warriors (ages 6-13). Depending on size and ability, a child may be moved into a different class as determined by instructors and/or parents. Jiu-Jitsu differs from most other martial arts in that belt rank is something that does not come rapidly. It can take upwards of ten years to achieve a black belt. Belt promotions are based on the amount of technical knowledge a student can demonstrate as well as the level of skill with which they can perform.
