Today we had a really great kids class and I was able to take a quick video at the end of the class and I wanted to share it on our website. It is really amazing what a short video can show you about our kids, what they are learning and how the program is run.
First you will see these kids are learning and trying some great Judo and Gracie Jiu Jitsu techniques. You can see them sparring both on their feet and on the ground. While on their feet you will see them going for the throws they learn as part of their Judo training. You will see the kids throw and get thrown safely. They all know how to fall properly and it shows.
When they are grappling on the ground their gracie jiu jitsu training shines through. Part of the video will show some of the kids getting mount properly and even taking the back and getting their hooks in. You will see some great defense, sweeps and escapes as well. It is really great to watch these kids train.
You can also see the high level of instruction the kids get as well as how much supervision they receive. This is a short video and I didnt get all the instructors in the shot but I believe we had about seven instructors helping with this class. Most importantly that helps keep all the kids safe. It also allows the kids to get more work in. We can run more drills, have the kids spar more and really keep things moving with so many experienced instructors on the mat.
Im actually sorry that I didnt plan this video out better or organize it a bit. I just realized that our little kids are kind of left out because they were playing a fun game during this two minute part of class and I wanted to get some footage of our kids sparring. Next time Ill show more of what our 4-6 year old kids can do and Im sure you will be amazed. Again its great to see what kids can do with the right coaching and when they are in the right program.
Ok here is the video. I hop you enjoy it!
