Gracie Academy Philadelphia teaches martial arts to kids ages 5+, depending on size and maturity. Trials available for 4 year olds. Students learn both self defense and self confidence and have a lot of fun! Whether on the playground or dealing with a bully in school, kids with a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu education learn how to use prevention to avoid confrontation in the first place and how to protect themselves and avoid injury if necessary. Jiu-Jitsu takes natural tendencies towards wrestling behavior and gives them form, function, and responsibility.
