Kids Martial Arts
Our Salem-Keizer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy Kids Martial Arts program is blowing parents away. Many parents enroll their kids thinking martial arts is simply self-defense... and they're happily shocked to find that their kids are learning incredible life-skills, too.
Our Keizer program helps children develop confidence, respect, courage and discipline. Parents - and teachers - notice a big difference from the first week.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Salem-Keizer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, self-defense system and a combat sport that focuses on grappling, wrestling and ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan Judo in the early 20th century and then moved to Brazil where it was redefined and improved upon.
BJJ can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi or no-gi), mixed martial arts (MMA) competition and is great for developing balance, speed and agility. Although Brazilian in design, these BJJ classes are taught right here in Keizer, Oregon
