Give your child the life-long gift of confidence. Gracie Jiu Jitsu teaches children to avoid confrontations wherever possible and to safely diffuse the situation using minimal force and proper leverage. At Chapel Hill Gracie Jiu Jitsu, our primary focus is on character development and self-defense. A confident, well-mannered, child who trains jiu jitsu does not go looking for trouble but does not shy away when trouble arises. We teach our youth practitioners to be ambassadors of jiu jitsu and to use lessons from class while in school, at home, and in the community. Come try out our program and see the changes Gracie Jiu Jitsu can create in your child. 

Our programs are currently broken into two age groups. Our 4-6 year old class meets Tuesday and Thursday at 4 pm and our 7-14 year old class follows after at 5 pm. Saturday morning at 9 am we have a combined class for all youth students. We also have Youth Wrestling on Monday at 5 pm and a Youth Advanced class on Wednesday at 5 pm.
