HERE’S HOW WE HELP KIDS

Our program helps kids improve their behaviour on and off the mat. Kids who struggle to pay attention and listen to their caregivers or teachers see an improvement over time.

With our Jiu-Jitsu martial arts, we help kids realize their full potential by instilling self-esteem and self-confidence. Shy kids become more outspoken and walk a little taller.

Our methodology helps improve kids’ focus in school or other activities and this includes children who deals with attention deficit disorders.

Bullying can cause
life long psychological damage

Bullied children suffer from low self-esteem, anxiety, fear, and as a result – poor school grades. Their entire life (and their decision making) is plagued by the actions of bullies. Bullies focus on those who seem vulnerable (or scared), but martial arts such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches kids to be confident. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu builds not only physical strength, but also mental and emotional fortitude. Also by teaching self-respect, it helps kids truly believe in themselves, and this often makes them appear as unrewarding targets for bullies.

CHANNEL YOUR CHILD’S ENERGY INTO POSITIVITY

We’ve come to understand that children bully other children because they lack self-respect and confidence. They then seek a another child to bully who they perceive as weaker in order to boost their own sense self worth. This is why at Iron Grip we put a very strong emphasis on discipline and respect and through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes, a bully can start seeing the error in their ways. The energy at our school shows kids that one cannot respect yourself if you do not respect others.

KIDS LEARN TO FOCUS ON THE IMPORTANT STUFF

With Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training highlighting focus, that same focus will carry over to the classroom, to home and beyond. Thanks to our powerful curriculum, repetition and memorisation, kids learn in no time that they need focus to excel in our school. It’s not forced upon them, they’ll develop this need themselves as time progress. We will teach them mental discipline by using special tools to avoid distractions as best possible.

KIDS LEARN TO FOCUS ON THE IMPORTANT STUFF

Students who are naturally competitive love Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu because it’s practiced as both a sport as but also a self-defense method. When the time is right, BJJ requires students to spar in class (and we slowly introduce this), but many students who have advanced in skill can choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement. If you’re competitive, this is where it’s at! At Iron Grip, competitions are not mandatory.

Testimonials

MORNE ATTERBURY wrote…

“Just over a year ago my wife and I wanted our son to start wrestling. The classes comprised of all age groups from about 4 to 21, he was turning 4 at the time, and although they tried very hard it just felt like he got lost between all of the kids. We also have a daughter but we did not want her to wrestle, she was 7 at the time.
 
We then took both our kids to the nearest Jiu-Jitsu School (Irongrip) to attend a free class to see what it was about and if they would enjoy it. The reason we ended up taking my daughter to class as well was the fact that Jiu-Jitsu focusses heavily on self-defence from the ground, it wasn’t just wrestling (i.e. overpower your opponent) it was more focused on technique so that a smaller/weaker opponent can beat a bigger/stronger opponent. How do I get my aggressor to submit / give up, instead of how can I pin his shoulders to the ground. Both my kids ended up loving it, my daughter even more so than my son. They are still doing it and loving it.
 
The classes have around 10 kids in them with between 2 to 3 coaches, so the kids do not get lost in class but get focused attention instead. Jiu Jitsu is by far the best out-of-school activity that my daughter has done (and she’s done most of them). Her confidence has gone from 1 out of 10 to 8.”
