Kids BJJ in Zürich Oerlikon

Kids BJJ Classes

All the kids classes at the BJJ Lab are taught in German, but all the coaches also speak English.

Respect, discipline and confidence are some of the most important things that kids will learn in our classes. These things will not just help them in our jiu jitsu classes, but also carry over to other areas of their life.

The kids will learn how to handle bullies, deescalate threatening situations and how to defends themselves against bullies and other threats.

With the youngest kids we focus on developing the fundamental movement skills: agility, balance, coordination and speed. The class consists of a variety of playful exercises and fun games that keep the kids engaged and learning at the same time.

The fundamental movement skills are very important for the development of a child. Learning the fundamental movement skills will not only benefit them for learning any kind of sport in the future, but also in other aspects of their life.

The classes are also a great opportunity for them to socialize with other kids of their own age group and make new friends.

When the kids are old enough, we start to teach them BJJ techniques. With the beginners we only focus on positional improvement and control. Only the more advanced kids learn a few basic submission holds and how to control them without hurting their partner.

Fun is of course still very important. We only teach a single technique each class, the rest of the class consists of BJJ specific movement drills and games.

Our kids classes are every Wednesday on 17:00 and Saturday on 10:00 and last about 45 minutes. The classes are with a gi (uniform). We provide a loaner gi for the trial classes. If you decide to enroll your child, a gi is included in our intro package.
