Tiger Sharks

Gracie Fernandina’s Tiger Sharks (Ages 4-7)

The Tiger Sharks are the youngest group of grapplers at Gracie Fernandina. Here kids are introduced to grappling from a series of “games.” Every game is designed to disguise the learning and repetition.  These tiny sharks are taught positional techniques only, no submission holds. These classes are high energy, with a heavy emphasis on fun and physical movement. Ages for this class start at 4 however, it is important to understand kids must be able to sit in one spot for up to 3 minutes, follow very basic instructions with up to three steps, and be able to perform physical activities.

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.
