martial arts classes for kids and adults?
E3 Sports Facility, located in Overland Park, KS, has Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes for kids and adults seventeen times throughout the week, so you are sure to find a class or two to fit your busy schedule. E3 Sports Facility has added two family jiu-jitsu classes so kids and their parents can get fit and healthy together. Kids love playing with their parents, jiu-jitsu gives you the opportunity to learn and practice self-defense skills while getting in a fun workout. What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? It is a martial art that has recently gained popularity for competition and self-defense. Simply put, it is submission-based wrestling. Most fights eventually end up on the ground. Jiu-jitsu gives you the ability to escape from or hold an opponent without hitting or kicking.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu builds confidence and self-defense skills!
E3 Sports Facility is a proud affiliate of Leonardo Peçanha, three-time World Champion Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 4th degree black belt. Our in-house instructor is Vinicius Gimenes. Professor Gimenes is a 3rd-degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Hannah Robinow oversees the noon classes on Mondays and Wednesdays while Charlie Tietgen runs the children’s programs, facilitates open mats and competition training. Friendly and family-oriented, E3 Jiu-jitsu is the perfect place for beginners and people of all skill and fitness levels. Wear your own gi, or purchase one of our top of the line Vulkan Ultra Light Gis. In order to keep everyone healthy, we ask that everyone washes their gis after each class. We also ask that everyone is barefoot on the mats so we can keep them clean.
Classes start out with a jiu-jitsu style warm-up. Instructors then introduce one or two jiu-jitsu “moves” and demonstrate until all participants feel ready to give it a try. They then team up with a partner and begin “drilling” the move, with an instructor nearby to help out. After everyone feels confident, it is time to roll. Rolling is what jiu-jitsu players call it when two people compete in jiu-jitsu. Since players are actively engaged, friendships are formed more quickly than going to a big box gym where everyone is working out attached to earphones and listening to their own music.
