KAHALA Jiu Jitsu
KIDS 1 CLASS (ages 3 - 4): (Saturday Only)
Bully Prevention is a precursor to our Kids Combatives. This class helps a child develop self confidence and self awareness so that they can start learning how to participate in a group setting with other kids. We play games that will train their muscles to do Jiu Jitsu as they get older. The kids also learn how to focus and participate as a group. They learn the value of matching up and that losing has value as much as winning. The kids to train with each other and parents are welcome to participate in any of the games and activities.
KIDS 1 & 2 CLASSES (ages 5 - 7 and ages 7-9):
This class is designed to help kids learn how to protect themselves from bullies or anyone else who wants to hurt them. It is also a pre-curser class to Jiu Jitsu. What makes this class so unique is that the parents are welcome to participate with the child. Each class is created so that the parent can do the program with the child so that the child may practice the techniques at home as well as in class allowing them to build confidence and muscle memory so that the techniques come to them naturally and instinctively. If a parent is not available to participate with the child, that is OK too. There is no better gift to give your child, and yourself, then knowing that your child can defend their self against someone bigger and stronger in a threatening situation. It not only gives you peace of mind, but your child as well.
PRE-TEEN (ages 9 -12):
Pre-Teens are on the verge of transitioning out of childhood and enter into the teenage years. This is the class where kids have to step up to the plate and focus on their goals in Jiu Jitsu and start thinking and producing more maturely. Kids will learn to think in combinations and prevention. This class is a precursor to the Teen Class.
TEENS (ages 12 - 16):
KJJ has one of the largest "Teen" programs in Hawaii. They not only learn the art of Jiu Jitsu for self defense, sport and competition, but when they qualify, are trained to be assistant instructors to the Kid's classes which increases their own training exponentially. They are also the only class that we teach No-Gi to.
ADULT FUNDAMENTAL BASICS:
Our "Fundamental Basics" class is great for beginners and advanced belts alike. We focus on the basic technical understanding of Jiu-Jitsu and the physics of the body in order to learn what the body can and cannot do. We feel its important for students to understand and create a muscle memory for basic Jiu-Jitsu moves before venturing into the advanced and more complex techniques of BJJ.
Gracie Jiu Jitsu is one of the fastest growing sports and martial arts in the world because of its ability for a smaller and weaker man or women to over-power and subdue a stronger and bigger one. Although it masters the art of fighting on the ground, stand-up and take-downs are also an integral part of the program. In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, there is no striking and kicking involved, but rather positions & techniques that through timing and leverage, allow you to subdue a person by moving the body, limbs, and joints in ways that they are not meant to move. For every technique used, there are at least five counter-techniques. This makes training fun, challenging and unpredictable which is why the sport is growing so fast.
