So, you want to enroll your child (4-7 years old) in a martial arts class but are not sure where to start or what type of martial art to enroll her in. There are a lot of choices out there and if you do not have any experience, the decision can be stressful. One possibility for young children is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

"What is  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Jiu Jitsu is translated as gentle art/soft art.

The term “gentle art” was to convey the guiding idea that lies beneath all Jiu- Jitsu, both classical Japanese and modern Brazilian – the idea of using one’s own strength in the most efficient way. Rather than resisting force with force, the idea is to yield to force and then use an opponent’s strength against him, using efficient technique in an intelligent fashion to overcome raw strength and aggression – this is the philosophical core of jiu-jitsu."

Basically, grappling and learning how to leverage the other person's strength against them. How to get up after someone knocks you down and how to out-think your opponent. Arashi Do offers the Mini Monkey BJJ program to students ages 4 through 7. This specialized curriculum is built especially for that diverse age group and their learning needs.

"The Mini Monkey program is designed especially with children ages 4-7 in mind and is offer EXCLUSIVELY at Arashi Do Martial Arts.
