Manasota Jiu Jitsu offers classes for children beginning at age 6. Kids are taught basic jiu jitsu in a safe, active, and fun learning environment. Classes are led by Professor Clayton. Each class is structured the same, beginning with warm ups and fundamental movements, next is techniques, and then positional drilling. Each class concludes with a competitive game. For children interested in competition, additional classes and grappling times may be offered. Professor Clayton always wants to make sure our gym is good fit for each interested student and offers a free class to assure your child enjoys jiu jitsu before a financial commitment is made. Stop by the gym or contact Professor Clayton for more information.
