GB Kids Group A

Gracie Barra Kids

The Samurai Kids (ages 3-12) program is a traditional Japanese Jiu Jitsu program which incorporates basic wrestling takedowns as well as traditional judo throws. Once on the ground, your child starts learning basic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and other traditional Jiu-Jitsu self-defence techniques. Expect your child to learn the basics of striking as well in this program as well.

Students progress through learning traditional martial arts striking and as they progress towards their Black Belt and begin training in the Black Belt Class, they will then begin learning the fundamentals of Muay Thai Kickboxing.

The Samurai Kids program has exciting technical martial arts lessons to equip your child to defend themselves standing up or on the ground such as:

  • Jiu-Jitsu
  • Wrestling
  • Judo
  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
  • Muay Thai

We focus on teaching our students to be the best they can, believe in themselves, to endeavour, to respect others and to refrain from violent behaviour. This is our Dojo Kun or the rules of the Dojo. Students recite the Dojo Kun at the beginning and at the end of every class. It is the foundation of the life lessons and the stories we tell the children.

Classes are split into the following groups 3,4 & 5-year olds, 6,7 and 8-year olds and 9-year-olds and over.

This program is designed to grow your child into a Black Belt that believes in themselves, has a great work ethic and positive morals and values. These qualities can carry them through success in their life on and off the mats.

Pairs well with: GB Kids Advanced, Kids Randori  Thai Kids & After School Program

  1. Hi, I’m interested in martial arts for m’y 5 years old daughter. Please, could we book a trial class for her? She is absolutely new to martial arts.


    1. Hi Yuliia,

      We would love to give your daughter a free trial.

      Check out our online schedule and look for a Samurai Kids class that works for you. Plan to come 20 minutes early to fill out some waivers before the class. She can wear sweatpants and a t-shirt for the trial.

      Hope she enjoys herself 🙂
