Prodigy MMA – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Kids BJJ times are 4pm Tuesday and Thursday. 2pm Saturday (mandarin speaking instructor). Our kids BJJ blackbelt instructor, Darko Zaric is approved for working with children.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art as well as combat sport. BJJ is an extremely effective form of self-defense that focuses on grappling, especially ground fighting.

It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper technique notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person.
Jiu Jitsu can be trained for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense.
Sparring (commonly referred to as ‘rolling’) plays a major role in training.
These classes offer a variety of grappling and technical training. These classes include students and techniques from white belt through to black belt and beyond
A typical class will consist of a warm up ,3 or 4 techniques and then finish the class with multiple rounds of grappliing.
BJJ is an exceptionally fun way to get a good workout
We also have adult classes Monday to Saturday. Adults can choose from BJJ, MMA, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Wrestling, strength and conditioning.

Judo4Kids at Blackman Park

The programme is for kids between:

5 – 9 years

10- 15  years

Your child can participate just for fun, or they can use Judo4Kids as a launching pad for competitions in the future.

There is NO pressure it is about learning the fundamentals of Judo.  Judo does not involve kicking or punching.  It’s grappling and wrestling (and let’s face it kids love to grapple and wrestle so they should be taught how to do it safely).  Their motto is what happens on the mat, stays on the mat and not at home.  Both boys and girls enjoy the action at Judo4Kids in Lane Cove.

Find out all about Judo4Kids here.

Roman can’t wait to tell you about their school holiday programme.  He told us it will be a Holiday Camp that is jammed pack with action and fun for kids (and some relief for parents  4 hours on a Saturday – Parent’s brunch yes please). The sessions are planned for two Saturday 16 January 2021 and  23rd January 2021.  Details will be in ITC’s School Holiday guide.
