Jiu-Jitsu and Self-Defense in Carrollton

Our focus for beginner all-level classes is to teach basic movements, body/situational awareness to better their position against an opponent using technique, respect and good sportsmanship. We teach submissions, sweeps and chokes from various positions and most importantly, how to defend against it! From there your child will learn everything they need to prepare for real-life scenarios and advanced competition training.

Competition Training

One of the biggest benefits to children competing in BJJ is the life lessons they receive when losing and the pride they feel when winning! Learning to lose with dignity and realizing that it is not the end of the world is huge in a child's success. Jiu-Jitsu is a highly competitive sport that builds friendships and provides life lessons.

Tournaments can help enrich our personal journeys by enlarging our scope and perspective of other communities, helping us develop the skills to process adversity in a positive way. Here at Journey Jiu Jitsu in Carrollton, we are dedicated to providing advanced kids competition training to help prepare, coach and introduce your child to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitions leading them to success!
