Youth Martial Arts

Youth Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

Develop disciplined and confident children through Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

The Youth Gracie Jiu-Jitsu program at the Royce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy of Raleigh teaches the values of respect, discipline and self-control. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a reality-based martial arts discipline proven to work in real-world self-defense scenarios. Frequently, in bullying situations the child is smaller than the bully. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu teaches a smaller child the skills needed to defend themselves against a larger opponent. Your kids will work with our certified instructors on learning the moves and techniques essential to success. We build self-confidence and real-world skills children will be able to rely on for the rest of their lives. If you would like to instill self-confidence, positive exercise habits and help your child truly learn how to defend themselves look no further.

  • Learn non-aggressive real-world self defense techniques
  • Gain self-confidence, awareness, and discipline
  • Develop character through teamwork and social interaction

You should never have a power, in any area, with the purpose of harming someone.

- Grand Master Helio Gracie
