Kids Grading – May 2019

Last Saturday (25/05) we had an amazing day, grading our kids at Gracie Humaita Sydney Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).

It is always so exciting to see our little warriors improving their skills through our Kids Program. Congratulations to all of you!

The Gracie Humaita Kids Grading happens twice a year and it is based on the techniques that are taught through the year by our coaches at the Academy.

The kids eligible for Grading are chosen by our coaches based on their performance, commitment, and attendance to classes.

Jiu Jitsu is a great form to educate our youth, and it can help kids to stand up against bullies.

Congratulations to all new graduates, coaches and instructors.

A huge thanks to all the parents for bringing their kids to classes and for trusting in our work.

Kids Program: what they’re learning this week?

After the great Saturday that our Gracie Family had with the Kids Grading Ceremony, it’s time to introduce to our little students new Jiu-Jitsu techniques and positions, in order to keep them improving and developing their skills.

Our Instructors started the week teaching the basics principles of half-guard – also known in Portuguese as meia-guarda, half guard is a complex position in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The definition of grappling guard requires that the bottom player (grappler with his back towards the mat) makes use of his legs to control the distance between himself and the guard passer (grappler on top), the half guard follows that same concept.

Besides the basics of half-guard, our instructors are also teaching how to not get squashed on the bottom and how to make frames. Know those principles it is extremely important as half-guard evolved into one of the most utilized positions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The following photo shows Owen & Chris teaching the kids this afternoon, during the class.
