American Jiu Jitsu

American Jiu Jitsu (AJJ) is a unique, scenario-based self-defense art that teaches students to respond to realistic situations with minimal effort using principles of physics, balance, and knowledge of human anatomy. AJJ draws from traditional martial arts such as Judo, Aikido, Daito-ryu, and Aiki jiu jitsu to teach students effective timing, and use of footwork and body positioning for prompt neutralization of an attack while avoiding use of strength against strength.

 

Acrobatics & Tumbling

Personalized instruction to help your child learn flips and tumbling in a safe and fun environment.

 

Tai Chi

Tai Chi Chuan, combines fluid and balanced movements with controlled and relaxed breathing and postures. The art has been described as "moving meditation."  It is low impact, and yet it can be as robust as one wants it to be. 
Don’t be fooled, Tai Chi Chuan is a Martial Art and quite an effective one if trained properly. The solo forms can be seen as an effort of the masters throughout the history of Tai Chi to record, codify, and pass down specific combat techniques and strategy. Thus, the principles of relaxation, correct and well-coordinated posture, breathing, and sensitivity were all a part of the fighting strategy of Tai Chi Chuan.

American Jiu Jitsu of Maplewood is a family run business that does an incredible job building skills and confidence in its students. Tony and the rest of the staff have a great rapport with the kids, and they do an excellent job promoting anti-bullying & self defense techniques.
