Henry Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the Central Illinois Affiliate of the Robson Moura Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association, is pleased to announce that we are in the process of starting a Kids Program which will be taught by our Assistant Instructor, Ed LeMonnier.
Ed received his Purple Belt from Professor Robson Moura on December 8, 2012 and besides running a kids program in the past, he is the father of two amazing daughters that are 6 and 3 years of age.
This is a bully free zone and teammates will be taught the importance of sportsmanship, hard work, as well as humility. We are not looking to turn your child into the next Ultimate Fighter, as we teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in a safe and fun environment. We are looking to help improve their self confidence, to understand the importance of teamwork, to build upon their good habits, while hopefully eliminating their bad habits, and the importance of setting goals.
Everyone trains for different reasons and the coaching staff at Henry Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will help customize your child’s training to match the goals that have been discussed.
Classes will be offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting at 5pm and will last for 45-minutes for teammates ranging from 6 to 15 years of age. Once we have ten students that have committed to the program, a Free One-Week Trial will be given for all of the teammates to experience the class to make sure it is something that they want to do. A child will have more fun and learn more if they truly want to be in attendance, rather than being forced to attend.
Teammates will work with other students that are comparable in size when we first start out, but the beauty about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is that it is designed to allow a smaller individuals to fend off a larger opponent.
After the first week, we can place a team order for Robson Moura Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gis which will allow everyone to train properly as well as save money!
