THE KIDS BJJ PROGRAM
AT THE JIU JITSU MILL

This is real life self defense

Our students are not breaking boards or holding poses and told this will help against a bully in the school yard. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) teaches positional dominance versus a live opponent. Our program will give your kids the skill set and CONFIDENCE to assert themselves, so they can walk through the halls of their school KNOWING no one can hurt them physically or mentally.

Embrace the challenge

Jiu Jitsu is challenging & demanding. There’s no denying that. We structure our Kids BJJ Program so that students develop a strong, positive self image from the outset; so they can see results and become champions; not just in competition, but in life.

value Hard Work

Nothing in life worth having comes without hard work. This is a principle we stress on a daily basis and it is reinforced through every aspect of our program. Our students have to earn their rank, and you never have to pay for it.

FOCUS

We live in an era where we are bombarded with distractions. Children and adults are finding it harder to focus. Our students are taught to stand still and look at people in the eyes when they’re being spoken to. To respond clearly and decisively. To focus their mind, body and mouth on one task at a time. To be aware of others around them

Grit

A growing body of research that suggests grit, our capacity to dig deep and keep going even in the face of great challenges, is a highly accurate predictor of success in many aspects of life. In our Kids BJJ Program, our students overcome challenges on a daily basis that cultivates true resilience when the going gets tough.

Lets Kids be Kids...

Unfortunately in our current generation, bumping into each other on the schoolyard has become a “nuclear event”... Our kids BJJ program gets kids comfortable with physical interaction and addresses the basic adolescent need for kids to wrestle.

Self Discipline AND Self Control

Whether it's to get in their push-ups and pull-ups before catching the bus in the morning, or to abstain from physical conflict when possible at school, our students can confidently rely on their own judgment because it’s reinforced by clear, guiding principles our coaches and role models instill in them everyday.

Very impressed with the coaches and overall experience at Jiu Jitsu Mill. My turning 6 year-old son has been attending for a little over 6 months and we've seen a ton of improvement in his skills and physical coordination. The coaches are professional and effective at engaging large groups of younger children, which is no easy feat. My son never complains about going (a first for him) and is very proud of his hard-earned stickers and ribbons! 5 stars!read more

After several years of break, I started hitting the mats again and picked the Jiu Jitsu Mill as my gym. The coaches are approachable, welcoming and leading fun and enjoyable classes. All my interactions with the other students are friendly and helpful in getting me back up to speed. I appreciate the many classes that are available to me, especially the morning classes which work well for my schedule. I've been to many different gyms and can absolutely recommend The Jiu Jitsu Mill to others.read more

Came through while visiting family and had a chance to participate in the open mats. Clean, professional, academy with great culture, camaraderie, learning environment, and some top notch coaches/practitioners. Got some great work in with great people. Will definitely stop by again if/when in the area. Highly recommend!read more

My son has been attending The Jiu Jitsu Mill for roughly 6 months and we're really happy with it. From day one, Coach Jordan and the team were super welcoming. They're skilled and really good with kids. My soon-to-be 5-year-old grows more confident after every session. This place teaches discipline, helps kids tackle challenges, and ensures they have fun while learning so much.read more

I took my child who loves tumbling around and quite frankly I couldn't keep up. I thought it would be a good way for him to release energy while learning. It turns out the program goes beyond the discipline. The coaches ensure the kids are also building the skills to thrive as individuals and in becoming good human beings. They reward good behavior, their commitment but also their consideration for others. Most importantly they show kids how to be the best version they can be without worrying about others. I'm a huge fan of their method and strongly recommend any parent to consider them as a first option for their kids.read more

I first noticed the Jiu Jitsu Mill driving by on the street one day. Curious to see, I brought my 5 year old son in one day to watch. We have been here for almost 6 months now, and here’s what I can tell you about The Mill. My son is quicker to defend himself from bullies at school and other sports. As parents, there are moments where we simply cannot protect our children from everything. Bullying is one of things. I have noticed my son standing up for himself more and using some of the moves learned at the mill to defend himself from overly aggressive kids at some of his other sports activities. My son is learning jiu jitsu. He knows names, terms, and practices at home. He is proud of himself- his self-confidence is growing- and shares his accomplishments with family and friends. I am proud of him. Jordan and his coaches know the names, skill level, and level of attention given by every kid in the group in each session. They are attentive. They clearly explain what is being worked on at the days class and how to do it. They watch, encourage, and support the kids. They aren’t too soft- and they aren’t too hard. They use just the right amount of discipline, cooperation, patience, and more. They are teaching kids that rewards are earned and not given. Some days are awesome, and some days are hard. They are learning competitiveness, sportsmanship, and how to overcome challenges. The wall of virtues is a terrific way to show the kids their hard work is being acknowledged and rewarded. The key to seeing success in the program is to consistently come to sessions. I lead individuals professionally and constantly look for ways to encourage more strong leadership , I recommend the Millread more

The Jujitsu Mill is a first class experience,coach Jordan, Jamie, Nick, Elijah, and the entire team are extremely talented, knowledgeable and willing to help you grow as a student. Being a marine, I look for a place to push me, teach me and hold me accountable to be the best I can. The Jujitsu Mill does just that! I’m so grateful to be part of this family and so looking forward to be part of the jujitsu mills team for years to come. If you’re looking for jujitsu experience, I highly recommend the Jujitsu Mill.read more

The Jiu Jitsu Mill has been a wonderful experience. I came in 3 months ago and I felt like apart of the family right away. Coach Jordan and all the other coaches do a great job promoting a competitive and welcoming environment especially for individuals (like myself) who are new to jiu jitsu. The quality of training is next to no other and they make sure to take the time to answer all of our questions during training sessions. One thing that I really want to point out is the cleanliness of the gym. Coach Jordan and his staff do a phenomenal job maintaining the mats, showers, and changing areas.read more

I joined the Jiu Jitsu Mill with a lot of sports experience but almost no martial arts experience. This was a bit daunting at first. As a white belt, the coaches but even more importantly the students, have been so accepting and patient with me as I learn the ropes. This is a great academy with its own values and unique community that is a pleasure to be a part of.read more

Incredible experience at the Jiu Jitsu Mill. My 4 year old is learning coordination, discipline, and focus in an environment that is both safe and extremely fun. My 7 year old is developing all the same skills, plus growing in his physical confidence and comfort with overcoming difficulty. The transformation has been amazing in 6 months. Jordan and the other coaches are supportive and encouraging while also maintaining high expectations of the students. I couldn’t ask for a better martial arts gym for my kids. The adult classes have been great as well. As a beginner student, I don’t feel like I need to worry about injury or being pushed beyond what’s appropriate for a new student. Likewise, the advanced students are constantly looking out for the beginners and are very helpful as well. Again, couldn’t ask for a better place to train. I only wish we had joined The Jiu Jitsu Mill years ago.read more

I recently started attending classes at Jiu Jitsu Mill, and I have to say I am thoroughly impressed. One of the things I love about this gym is that it's open for conveniently, making it easy to find a class that fits into my busy schedule. The coaches at Jiu Jitsu Mill are incredibly helpful and encouraging, always pushing me to do my best and improve my technique. I've noticed a significant improvement in my skills since I started attending classes here. What excites me most is that I can't wait to enroll my daughter when
