Mako Sharks

Gracie Fernandina’s Mako Sharks (ages 8-10)

The Mako Sharks bridge the gap between our young Tiger Sharks and our mature Hammerheads. In these classes students are taught both positional techniques and submission holds using a teaching style meant to keep things very simple while at the same time adding more detail to the techniques. In this class, we place an even emphasis on fun and education to keep everyone engaged.

We are very passionate about our kid’s classes. Our unique “On Command” teaching style recognizes kids learn differently from adults and breaks down techniques into simple one word steps. Kids practice these steps using both the words and the physical movement to create a strong neurological path which results in faster more effective learning. We have tailored our curriculum to cover not only sound, effective, Gracie Jiu-jitsu but important life skills too. Our weekly “Mat Chats” integrate these life skills into our jiu-jitsu training and encourage personal development in areas such as:

  • Honor
  • Respect
  • Discipline
  • Courage
  • Attitude
  • And Much More!

It is important to our instructors that as we build great martial artists and competitors we take even more care to make sure we build good people too.
