Children’s Self Defense & Anti-Bullying

Give your children a fun and disciplined learning environment where they will learn practical self defense & anti-bully techniques. American Jiu Jitsu teaches focus, discipline and goal setting; and promotes healthy self esteem and a positive attitude.

Unlike other martial arts studios, American Jiu Jitsu does not encourage a competitive environment. The techniques we teach are meant for actual self-defense scenarios and should only be used when someone is trying to hurt us. We spend a lot of time teaching this philosophy to the children while molding responsible and mature young men and women. Children are acknowledged for their hard work and focus during class, at belt promotions, and at our annual Awards Brunch in front of their families and friends.

Renshi only teaches one type of child – THE BEST!
At American Jiu Jitsu, we help our children understand they are THE BEST, and no bully or attacker can ever make them feel otherwise! As a parent, I know how proud you will be when your child says “I’M THE BEST!” emphatically and with conviction in front of a class!

To build our mind and body as one.
To respect one another.
To obtain total awareness.
Never fight to achieve selfish ends.
But to develop might for right!

- The American Jiu Jitsu Student Creed


My son has been taking jiu jitsu at AJJ for several years. He has learned so much from the teacher and become a part of a great group of students. This studio is top notch, and the instruction is serious yet the students have fun learning. It has been an excellent experience all around. I would highly recommend this place to anyone interested in learning self defense.
