I've been going to Gracie SLC for 4+ months now between 3-5 times per week in their beginner combatives program. I love it. The instructors are great, friendly and competent. Jiu Jitsu is fun! This is a great place to start.

This is a fantastic program! My son is learning so much, and the other kids (and parents!) are friendly and welcoming. My son adores his teacher, Logan, who has reached rockstar status at our house! I’d recommend this program to anyone.

Great atmosphere. The other students are friendly and happy to work with you from day one. Mix of experienced martial arts practitioners and complete newbies. Everyone is concerned about preventing injuries. I've experienced no problems with egos creating issues.

Mostly male classes, but when females attend they aren't treated differently. You won't have to worry about no one wanting to practice with you, or someone creepy always wanting practice with you. Everyone is respectful of their fellow students regardless of gender. I would feel comfortable with my wife attending classes alone here.

Knowledgeable staff who genuinely want you to succeed. If your willing to show up and work they will teacher you what you need to know to defend yourself. I still have a long way to go, but feel I'm already much more capable of defending myself then I was when I started. Stop reading and give them a call :)

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

Family friendly, gentle, truly effective self defense
