Help your child build strength, self-confidence, and self-defense skills they’ll carry with them for the rest of their lives.
Children are some of our most eager and enthusiastic students. Playing and participating in sports has been proven to increase cognitive development, self-confidence, self-control, and more.
At 10th Planet San Mateo we believe anyone can overcome their limitations, learn new skills, and exceed their goals on and off the mat—including children. Your child will be challenged to grow in a safe and positive environment.
They’ll have lots of fun, make friends, and learn the skills they need to stand up for themselves, become more independent, and navigate new situations.
Mini Jitsu will help your child build the foundational skills they need to progress through to more advanced programs.
Bully Proof Self-Defense - Children learn the skills necessary to defend themselves while having fun. They’ll learn the confidence to stand up for themselves without violence and protect themselves from school yard bullies. Empowered kids show up to the world as confidence, self-assured leaders.
Encouragement - Our highly-skilled instructors are patient and encouraging to help motivate children to master each skill.
Better Focus - Learning Jiu Jitsu requires children to listen in order to master the moves. Our instructors have the patience, experience, and capabilities necessary to help every child learn, listen, and have fun.
Impulse Control - Jiu Jitsu has a way of inherently nurturing and developing impulse control. Children learn to think before they act and are rewarded when they complete a new skill successfully.
Confidence - Is your child painfully shy? Sign them up here! Practicing and learning in a safe environment with other kids will help your child come out of his or her shell as they learn new skills. This confidence carries over into school, play, and home life and will continue to benefit them as they grow up.
Happier Disposition - It's proven that when children are engaged in sports, they are more likely to avoid toxic behaviors later in life. Active children have a heightened sense of well-being, which makes them more likely to branch out, try new things, and make more friends.
Physical Health - With video games and digital distractions, kids aren’t getting outside as much as they should. Lack of physical activity in childhood has been linked to diminished cognitive abilities. Get your kids off the couch and into our gym. We’ll lay the foundation for physical health that carries through to adulthood.
Community - Just like the adult classes, when kids take Jiu Jitsu they have the opportunity to interact and make friends with other kids their age.
