Gracie Jiu Jitsu of Kentucky Spider Monkeys / Menions Program

Children Ages 4 to 9

Imagine a classroom of happy, highly motivated children having fun and learning self defense skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. This is what our Spider Monkeys & Menions Jiu Jitsu Program can do for your child.

A psychological study found that children in Jiu Jitsu and similar martial arts have an increased sense of responsibility, are more reluctant to take foolish risks, and have a greater sense of self-esteem. This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children’s education. Plus it’s just pure fun!

What makes this martial arts program unlike anything your child has ever experienced?

Well, we've taken the best training and techniques from martial arts, physical fitness  and scholastic programs, and developed them into our Spider Monkey & Menion Jiu Jitsu program.

Our program is designed to help each and every child develop in a positive manner by teaching them skills that will help them in school, at home, socially and, of course, in situations where they have to stand up for themselves.

There are no bench warmers in Jiu Jitsu.

Besides traditional training in the martial arts, we work on each child's individual abilities and utilize our skills to bring out the very best in them. In many conventional sports there are always some children who do very well and others who don't. We have a slogan... “There are no bench warmers in our school.” Every child excels in this program, developing their confidence in the process, so that they will be able to deal with any situation.

Essential techniques are learned through foundation-building games and non-verbal strategies.

At this age group, children are not interested in learning martial arts, but they sure don’t mind “playing” martial arts. The secret is that we utilize a series of 10 “Scott Smith Jiu Jitsu Games” in which we secretly teach the children essential self-defense techniques. By playing the fun and challenging “Scott Smith Jiu Jitsu Games,” children develop strong reflexes in the execution of the basic techniques, as they unconsciously learn the foundational principles of leverage and control.

Once a child masters the Team Scott Smith Jiu Jitsu Games, or turns eight years old, we promote them to the Junior Program.

  • Three classes per week

  • From 30 - 45 minutes per class

  • (30 minutes the recognized attention span of four to six year olds & 45 for older)

Martial art training has been recognized as one of the safest and best activities in the world for teaching children self-esteem, self-discipline, self-confidence and life skills. Psychologists, guidance counselors and teachers recommend martial arts for children with Autism, A.D.D., A.D.H.D. and discipline issues. Imagine your child learning all this while also staying fit, developing balance and coordination, fine motor skills, focus, patience, and respect.
