A specific part of our preschool and kids martial arts classes at Citadel BJJ in Iowa City is teaching respect, and teaching when to use their new self defense training and when to NOT use it. We find that our students become more confident to stand up to bullies and have more humility and kindness to others though their martial arts lessons.

We don’t require parents to stay during classes.  However, we do find that parents who get involved with their kids martial arts lessons, truly build a solid connection as they see their child grow in confidence and skill as they progress through their belt ranks.   And building strong family units is important to us at Citadel BJJ for our Iowa City community.

Parents are not allowed to watch classes for a variety of reasons. First, the kids always end up looking at the parents; the kids should be paying close attention to their coaches and/or their training partners during practices. The kids in our program will build independence and toughness, and our “No Parents Allowed In Practice” rule is part of that development process.

This program is for the KIDS, first and foremost. We take care to build an atmosphere of trust between the coaches, the parents, and the kids. The happily-involved parents here like the ‘me-time’ they get while their kids are training. Most parents drop their kids off and go grab a coffee, or go somewhere to relax a bit; then after class, your kids will greet you with a huge smile when you return, because they had SO much fun!

Even better… join into some of our martial arts classes for adults. We actually have some parents who train in the adult classes right after the kids classes! Your kids will love that you have something in common. It will build a stronger family bond!

Not at all.  You will find that martial arts classes are the PERFECT sport for kids who are not good at sport.  Kids martial arts classes really are an individual after school activity, that they do in a group. 

The journey from white belt to black belt is different for each student.  But what is the same…. They improve co-ordination, balance, motor skills, focus and discipline.  Plus, they makes lots of great friends!

Our Instructors are highly skilled in teaching martial arts for kids.  Really… It’s their PASSION!

This is probably the BEST kids activity for children who sit a lot! 

Getting them active, without them realising they are learning, is our skill.  Kicking and punching pads is such a great stress relief, that kids blossom in all areas – because of their martial arts training.

Many Iowa City parents find that once their kids start martial arts classes, they see a happier, more social child develop right before their eyes.  You’ll be glad they started classes!

PLUS…. Most kids LOVE being ninja!

Yes! Not all of our students care to compete, but the ones that do are in good hands with our coaching staff and team. Our head Jiu Jitsu coach Matt Leighton is one of America’s best-credentialed black belts, and he leads our competition team.

Jiu Jitsu tournaments are an exciting challenge! Anyone can compete in Jiu Jitsu! (Of course, you want to be as well-prepared as possible when the time comes, if you choose to compete.)

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has become more of a mainstream sport here in the United States, so there are plenty good opportunities to compete all over the USA, and even locally right here in Iowa!
