Youth programs

Our Gracie Barra Youth Program is designed to teach children self-discipline and provide a sense of community. Children over the age of three can begin their training experiencing the true power of camaraderie and integrity.
Our GB Youth Program is structured similarly to adult courses, with adaptations made to reach the different age ranges in the class. Jiu-Jitsu classes for children begin with the building blocks that are needed to teach the fundamentals of Jiu-Jitsu. We have developed a curriculum that is structured in a way that shows children and teens the value of routine, cooperation and self-awareness and offers real-world benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will My Child Become A Bully?
We find that our students become more confident to stand up to bullies and have more humility and kindness to others through their martial arts lessons.

We don’t require parents to stay during classes. However, we do find that parents who get involved with their kids martial arts lessons, truly build a solid connection as they see their child grow in confidence and skill as they progress through their belt ranks. And building strong family units is important to us at GB Tarzana for our Tarzana community.

Make sure you wear comfortable clothes you can do sport in! Not really suitable to practice kicks in a skirt.😳

Be sure to bring a water bottle to your martial arts classes. You will find GB Tarzana in Tarzana Ca. have martial arts classes for kids and adults that are a great workout and lots of fun! Most students are grinning from ear to ear by the end of the class. I am sure you will be too!

Yes! One of the great things about martial arts classes, is that it’s an individual sport, done in a group environment. We find all our students improve in their focus, self control, discipline and social skills. But the best part is…. They don’t even realize that is what our highly trained Kids Martial Arts Instructors are actually doing. They just think they are having fun!

We encourage parents to watch their children in their kids martial arts lessons. We love parents getting involved! And so do their kids. Even better… join into some of our martial arts classes for adults. Your kids will love that you have something in common. It will build a strong family bond!
Additionally, if you wanted some ‘me-time’? Simply drop them off, and go grab a coffee. They will greet you with a huge smile when you return, because they had SO much fun!
Not at all. You will find that martial arts classes are the PERFECT sport for kids who are not good at sport. Kids martial arts classes really are an individual after school activity, that they do in a group.
The journey from white belt to black belt is different for each student. But what is the same…. They improve co-ordination, balance, motor skills, focus and discipline. Plus, they makes lots of great friends!
Our Instructors are highly skilled in teaching martial arts for kids. Really… It’s their PASSION!
This is probably the BEST kids activity for children who sit a lot! Getting them active, without them realising they are learning, is our skill. Kicking and punching pads is such a great stress relief, that kids blossom in all areas – because of their martial arts training.

Many Tarzana parents find that once their kids start martial arts classes, they see a happier, more social child develop right before their eyes. You’ll be glad they started classes!

PLUS…. Most kids LOVE being ninja!
