"Our Amazing Kids Program Not Only Teaches Kids Self-Defense… But Gives Them The Tools They Need For Success In Life…"

From focusing, to goal setting, to self-discipline, to self-respect – our Kids Jiu Jitsu program changes kids for the better, and their parents couldn't be happier.

The best activity for kids

Here at Diego Bispo Academy, we truly believe Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the greatest Martial Art for Kids. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a non-violent Self- Defense System created to leverage the opponents force against them self. Unlike many other forms of martial arts, Jiu Jitsu does not use punching or striking, but uses leverage and submission. This actually gives the smaller practitioner an advantage other martial art forms do not.

Benefits of BJJ for kids:
  • Improved Self Confidence.

  • Better Social Skills.

  • Improved fitness and overall health.

  • Discipline, Focus and Respect.

  • Self Defense and Becoming Bully Proof.

  • Fun!!
