An important message from Professor Salvosa:
We have simple yet powerful objectives in our BJJ programme for Kids.
In our BJJ KIDS 4-6 YEAR OLD GROUP, we aim to provide your children with the keys to starting their journey in the martial arts. We have two classes on Sunday mornings from 9:30am-10:15am and from 10:30am-11:15am. Your child will learn important motor movements for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training, including a thorough understanding of the basic positions required for further practice. Children are engaged through fun and challenging drills and exercises that will improve their overall coordination, flexibility, conditioning and mental focus. Most importantly, they wil become proficient and familiar with the BJJ class setting and will enjoy a positive and encouraging team environment. This class serves as an excellent introduction and starting point for your child's martial arts adventure.
In our BJJ KIDS 7-10 and 11-14 YEAR OLD GROUPS, students of TEAM ASCENSION will learn a wide variety of holistic skills. Our PRIMARY AIM is to help provide your child with the necessary life tools required for success--both in martial arts (specifically BJJ) and in the real world!
In our society, it is important for us to acknowledge the reality faced by our children everyday. Unfortunately, we cannot solely rely on our school systems to ensure that kids are protected from bullying, physical and verbal abuse from negative social networks and an erosion of their confidence levels due to obesity and inactivity, among many other physical and social challenges (eg. excessive video game-playing vs. no exercise whatsoever).
Although some extra curricular activities might provide our children with an outlet for physical expression and development, they are sometimes too competitve to provide a healthy balance, sometimes too narrow and superficial to help gauge and develop emotional wellbeing in our kids. There must be something deeper, something more meaningful to help our kids to conquer their fears and achieve their goals.
As TEAM ASCENSION, our genuine mission is to provide our students with all the basics. How to fall properly; how to stretch; how to breathe properly while sparring; how to be respectful to coaches and teammates; how to develop an inner resolve against all obstacles.... and how to SEE the bigger picture: that martial arts, BJJ and life are much more than just winning and losing.
Classes are positive, engaging and motivational. Yes, your children will learn the basic manoeuvers, build a foundation, enjoy better conditioning and utilize cutting-edge techniques. Some of our students have managed to capture provincial titles.... and TEAM ASCENSION just recently won as Ontario's top competition team in 2009. However, we measure true success through your child's abilty to apply all of these tools to LIFE, the competition ground that matters most.
Our endeavour is to work together with you to build your child's confidence, get them into healthy physical shape and to instill the tools and values that will empower them to reach their goals.
If you share our training philosophy and would like to take the next step, please contact us to arrange a visit and FREE TRIAL CLASS for your child. Hope to see you sometime soon!
ASCEND TO THE NEXT LEVEL....
