Would you like to see your children to be confident, healthy, and respectful with a lifelong love of learning? Then Machado Little Grapplers is the place for your kids to learn skills for life! The Little Grapplers program takes a two-fold approach to developing skills for children: Martial Arts and Personal Development.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an excellent martial art for children, focusing on technique rather than size, encouraging self-defense without anger. Because Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses the entire body to perform techniques, children build valuable motor skills and are confident in their ability. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu builds balance, coordination, and good conditioning.
We also put an emphasis on the personal development of our little Grapplers—on the mat and off. We encourage the values of honesty, integrity, and good citizenship while focusing on self-confidence, goal setting and achievement, and using good judgment. Machado Little Grapplers are excellent on and off the mat!
