Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the fastest growing sports for children, because it teaches body movements that are safe, fun, and empowering. As a result, parents throughout Greater Boston enroll their children in our martial arts classes.

It is one of the only martial arts that focuses on grips, holds, and positions using leverage (rather than punches, kicks, or throws).

The unique Juniors BJJ program created by Keith and Kenny Florian focuses on defensive strategies – such as how to break free if someone grabs you, how to redirect the force if someone tries to push you, etc. Classes are taught by an instructor specializing in teaching children.

For maximum safety, classes are taught on 2 inch zebra mats, allowing everyone to roll around safely. Kids love the movements and techniques they practice in these classes.

Kids learn discipline and self-empowerment – invaluable tools against bullying and other distractions from school and personal development.

Our program uses martial arts skills as a way to promote life skills; which include self discipline, improved grades and good sportsmanship.

Several of our Junior students compete in tournaments. And a number of our students have a parent that trains in adult classes, because of the family-friendly environment we promote. It is very easy to fall in love with the jiu jitsu program at Florian Martial Arts.

The best way to get a sense of the practical benefits this Florian martial arts program provides is to stop by and watch a class!
