XK2 (Ages 8-12)
In the XK2 program, students begin to develop a deeper understanding of the art of Jiu-Jitsu and its broader aspects from self-defense to competition training developing your child into a martial artist and continuing the path of a lifelong learner. Jiu-Jitsu incorporates a lot of ground grappling and is based in automatic human responses. When it comes to self-defense, BJJ empowers a smaller individual to fight against a larger opponent. But the advantages don’t stop there. BJJ helps kids gain confidence, learn discipline, focus their energy, foster respect for others, and be a part of a one-of-a-kind community full of future friends and mentors!
Exodus Jiu-Jitsu XK2 (Ages 8-12) Program
There’s nothing worse than watching your child struggle to make friends, speak out in class, or stand up against bullies. The earlier you can build up your child’s confidence, the better! BJJ has long been regarded as one of the best ways to improve self-esteem in people of all ages, but its benefits for children are undeniable. Kids in Jiu-Jitsu will realize their talent, be cheered on by their peers and instructors, learn to use their voice, and feel a newfound sense of accomplishment.
As a parent, your priority is keeping your child safe. That’s why we are so passionate about equipping kids with the invaluable self-defense skills that BJJ provides. Jiu-Jitsu prepares students for real-life altercations and provides essential lessons on how to protect oneself.
Provides A Safe Environment
Preparing to defend oneself against an attacker sounds scary, but we promise to make sure that your child feels comfortable and safe throughout the entire process. We enforce a strict policy of acceptance, respect, and care for others that are incorporated into everything we do – whether it’s student-instructor interactions, warm-ups, sparring, or student friendships. From day one, we encourage students to express any questions and concerns they may have. We believe that communication is the key to creating a healthy and uplifting training environment.
Improves Health and Fitness
Jiu-Jitsu doesn’t just teach your child essential self-defense skills, it helps them in all aspects of their life. Having the ability to protect yourself will create a unique type of confidence in your child that carries over into their ability to speak out in class, make new friends, and stand up for themselves and others against bullies. Not to mention, Jiu-Jitsu is great for your child’s health. This martial arts discipline is known for providing students with a full-body workout that boosts flexibility, improves coordination, and creates positive lifestyle habits.
From the moment a child steps into our building, they will be met with a supportive and inclusive environment of instructors and fellow students who want them to succeed. Because students regularly spar with each other in class, you may be surprised to learn just how strong the friendships in our BJJ classes are. Jiu-Jitsu teaches kids the thrill of winning as well as the humility of losing, and we make sure our students respect each other throughout all the highs and lows of their training.
Variety Workouts/Stress Relief
Jiu-Jitsu helps build mental toughness, teaches the value of hard work, and gives you the persistence you need in everyday life. Many members at Exodus Jiu-Jitsu have said that training is also a great stress relief from school or work because it helps take their mind off problems they are facing so they can focus all their thoughts on the class being taught. It is a workout where you have to have the focus to execute all the various techniques until the end of class. By engaging your brain during class, Jiu-Jitsu can help provide a completely different workout that you won’t find anywhere else.
