Kids GUERRILLA JIU-JITSU in Thibodaux
Next Generation Martial Arts (opened 2016) is Thibodaux’s first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (bjj) academy and offers classes both to kids and adults.
Our kid's program focuses on real-life skills, using martial arts as a roadmap to teach practical applications beyond the mat.
Yes, learning the self defense side of martial arts is a confidence booster for kids. That’s why our curriculum builds the timid child into one capable of handling the various challenges of life.
I WILL WORK HARD
I WILL FOCUS
I WILL LEARN
I WILL BECOME MENTALLY TOUGH
I WILL IMPROVE EVERYDAY
At Next Generation Martial Arts, your child will learn verbal assertiveness and non-violent techniques to stay safe if physically confronted by a bully. We do NOT teach your child how to fight, punch, or kick their way out of a problem. Instead, we teach them how to defend themselves in a controlled manner should a confrontation arise. Our goal is to equip your child with unwavering confidence and a positive self-image because these tools teach children how to avoid confrontations to begin with.
And since Jiu-Jitsu is the art of self-improvement disguised as fighting techniques, we simply use it as a vehicle to teach kids Discipline, Confidence, Leadership, and Self Control.
