Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Black Lotus is thrilled to announce our affiliation with Renzo Gracie OAMA - elite Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training. We currently offer BJJ to ages 7 and up.
Why Jiu Jitsu?
DISCIPLINE & CONFIDENCE in children and Adults!
BUILD CHARACTER AND LEADERSHIP QUALITIES
Martial arts classes benefit growing children far beyond the dojo and in many real-world scenarios. Our structured classes are meant to help develop coordination, physical fitness, mental strength, as well as gain valuable social skills. Through positive reinforcement, we can bring out the best in your children to help them succeed in life.
PARENTING YOUNG CHILDREN IS A REAL CHALLENGE - BJJ CAN HELP!
You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.
Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.
The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.
MARTIAL ARTS HELPS KIDS (and adults!) LEARN TO DEAL WITH FRUSTRATION
Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.
The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.
IMPROVE FLEXIBILITY, BALANCE, AND STRENGTH

BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU TEACHES PRACTICAL SELF-DEFENSE TECHNIQUES
The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears.
By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.
Best of all, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.
It’s one of the world’s most effective self-defense techniques and is often preferred because it teaches students to leverage their body weight to defeat larger opponents.
