Future Champions Program
What Does it Take to be a Champion? Can a Martial Art Support a Parent’s Instruction?
To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that gives them perseverance to achieve his or her goals. The Gracie Barra Future Champions Program was created to provide children ages 3-15 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect.
As a contact sport, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature towards becoming a real life champion in all aspects. The outcome of continued childhood practice of GB BJJ goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behavior at home and school.
Our Future Champions Program has been subdivided in to four different groups to accommodate students of different ages and skill levels:
- Tiny Champions (3-4 years old)
- Little Champions I (5-6 years old)
- Little Champions II (7-9 years old)
- Teens (10-15 years old)
There is no losing in Jiu-Jitsu. You either win or you learn. – Carlos Gracie Jr.

The first time you come to our school you will be welcomed by our staff. Please arrive 15 minutes before class time so you and your children will have enough time to prepare for practice. The class will start on time and your child will be asked to walk to the training area where the instructor will be waiting for him or her. One of the assistant instructors or a senior student will be assigned as a helper to assist your child in performing the drills and activities. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch the entire practice.
