Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a self-defense based martial art that focuses on technique and body leverage over strength and size. It’s so important for kids to get an early start in activities that develop both the mind and body. Jiu jitsu, which emphasizes respect, confidence, self-discipline, and self-challenge, is the perfect such activity. It’s a powerful tool for teaching children and teens. In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, there are no strikes or hitting of any kind, making it quite different from other martial arts. Furthermore, the techniques we teach are meant only for the mat or in a situation of self-defense.
Another advantage of jiu jitsu is that it is a natural bully prevention program. At Pacific Top Team, we’ve taught a number of anti-bullying seminars at schools around the Inland Empire. But our program is most effective for kids who enroll at our school in Corona and attend regular jiu jitsu classes. Of course, our main goal is to make sure our kids are always having fun while they’re learning!
The beautiful aspect of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is that it’s challenging while remaining fun and engaging. We present students with challenges throughout their training to encourage them to develop important life skills such as problem-solving, focus, goal-setting and concentration. As a student practices the techniques in class, they’ll be getting an awesome workout without even knowing it, improving their flexibility, coordination, and strength.
The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lifestyle instills self-respect and taking care of oneself physically and mentally. These aren’t skills that will be useless once someone goes to high school or college. Our students carry these skills with them for the rest of their lives. Children are promoted based on the respect they show for instructors, training partners, and the martial art itself. This system gives them incentive to be a good listener, participate in all activities, and to take care of training partners. Earning a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu takes years of dedication and the journey is one that requires self-development and character-building. Shooting for this goal, even if they don’t reach it, helps teach children the value of commitment and dedication.
At Pacific Top Team, we strive to provide a positive, safe, and family-orientated environment for kids to learn and train. We love to see families that train together, as a family commitment to jiu jitsu can improve family dynamics and relationships. Qualified and experienced instructors teach all of our classes, kids and adult. They dedicate each day to making sure you have the best possible experience.

As a contact sport, Pacific Top Team Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature toward their goals. But the outcomes of continued childhood practice at PTT go 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 at school.
We divide our Kids Program into three different groups to accommodate students of different ages and skill levels:
Tiny Ninjas (3-4 years old)
