The Benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Youth and Teens at Gracie Barra Dana Point

jiu jitsu for teenagers

At Gracie Barra Dana Point, we believe that martial arts education offers both youth and teens more than just physical training. Through our dedicated classes, young learners internalize core values such as respect, persistence, and discipline. They come to understand that their actions, in the dojo and beyond, are a testament to their character and are pivotal in reaching their goals.

Beyond mastering martial techniques, they develop essential life skills ranging from coordination, balance, and teamwork to heightened focus, confidence, leadership abilities, and a profound sense of self-worth.

This holistic approach ensures they’re equipped not just for the mat, but for life’s myriad challenges.

Empowering Your Youth and Teen's Journey​

IGNITE GROWTH & CONFIDENCE THROUGH JIU-JITSU.

Discover the Importance of Self-Respect and Respect for Others

At times, youth and teenagers might come across as having more attitude than respect, seemingly challenging authority figures. However, in our martial arts school, respect forms a fundamental aspect of our teachings.

Students are required to demonstrate respect towards their instructors and fellow students consistently.

In the end, through martial arts education, youth and teenagers come to understand that when they respect themselves, they naturally earn respect from others as well.

Get Your Kid's Active in Martial Arts, Away from the Couch!

In today’s world, many teens and kids are glued to screens, whether it’s for games or scrolling through social media. It’s easy to see why—it’s fun and often feels rewarding. But spending too much time on screens can mean less time moving around and connecting with others face-to-face. Our martial arts classes at Gracie Barra Dana Point offer a fun and active break from screens. Here, kids and teens can challenge themselves, make real-life friends, and learn valuable skills. It’s not just about kicks and punches; it’s about building confidence, discipline, and friendships that last.

I have trained at so many martial schools for the past 25 years. Most very good however Gracie barra Dana point has something special that I have never experienced. Both the instructor and students at this school make it feel like home. Everyone is treated like family, treated with respect and accommodated no matter what level they are at on their jiu jitsu journey. The vibe is like no where else.

My son has been practicing jiu-jitsu here for about a year and a half and we love it! He enjoys learning all the self-defense moves and it helps him get some energy out. His behavior outside of class has also improved since introducing these lessons. We love the staff, they make it fun for the kids while still imposing good discipline and structure.

It's a Great Place to Learn Brazilian Jiu JItsu! I was no kid when I started but Professor Fernando and all the coaches went out of their way to keep me and everyone in the class safe and make it an enjoyable experience! I was in my 60’s when I started and enjoyed 10 wonderful years there before family matters encouraged a move out of state but I thought so highly of it my adult daughter trained with me and one of my granddaughters trains there currently. The facility is clean and the instructors are both talented and patient which is a rarity in this world It’s easy to be one or the other but both are a real gift. You will get out of it what you put into it but they teach you to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations and it’s a valuable skill in the world we live in now!

I've been to many martial arts and jiu jitsu schools and Gracie Barra Dana Point is by far the best. Even amongst other Gracie Barra's, GB Dana Point is far and above the best for instruction, atmosphere and friendly welcoming environment. My daughter and I both train here and their kids program is incredible. Professor Fernando and Coach Paula do an excellent job instilling confidence and discipline in the kids. My daughter loves coming here and your kid will thrive here as well. We love GB Dana Point!
