LITTLE NINJAS MARTIAL ARTS (4.5 to 7 yrs)
Our programs are famous for their balanced approach to teaching the martial arts to every student. Using success-based teaching techniques, our commitment to parent and student is to bring out every student’s best. Classes steer away from “one-size-fits-all” approach. Instead, our focus is on mobility, fitness, fighting and having fun. Our demand is simply “always do your best”. Kids learn to defend themselves, speak up and stay focused in a positive and healthy environment.
Little Ninjas classes, Jiu Jitsu or Karate, are age and developmentally appropriate. New students train with other new students, learning the FUNdamentals. Students graduate from the beginner program into an intermediate class where their skills are further developed. This keeps them challenged and engaged as they grow.
As our Little Ninja Jiu Jitsu program has grown, so has the average skill level. To help them grow, students who show dedication and who like a challenge can become a part of our jiu jitsu competition training class. Training is tough, students are expected to push themselves harder than before and are encouraged to participate in local area tournaments. Participation in tournaments isn’t mandatory, but if a student wants to compete, we want to be there to coach them!
NINJA KIDS MARTIAL ARTS (8 to 13 yrs)
The goal of our Jiu Jitsu, Karate and Mixed Martial Arts programs is simple: help students to build confidence that will last a lifetime. Self defense techniques teach kids how to stand up for themselves and others in any situation. Sparring, or controlled fighting, teaches them how to fight, taking the fear out of hostile physical situations. This allows students to stay “cool” under pressure, knowing if they have to fight, they can, but choosing not to when the situation permits. Education gives them the power to choose; simply put, kids who know how to fight, don’t.
Classes are fitness oriented, which includes lessons on nutrition and lifestyle as well as challenging workouts. Physical conditioning is coupled with character building activities; teamwork drills, student involvement during instruction, discussions on when it’s ok to use their martial arts training to defend themselves and “life-training” i.e. the qualities that make a good person on and off the mats: honesty, integrity, gratitude, self discipline and more. Our role-model instructors provide entertaining and engaging classes that ensure that everyone is having fun.
Students in this class are expected to work hard, follow instruction and challenge themselves beyond their own limits. We encourage all of our students to aim high!
KIDS JIU JITSU COMPETITION CLASS
Any level Jiu Jitsu student can join our growing competition team. As we expand our school, we are adding more and more competition-style training sessions. Building on techniques they learn in the fundamentals classes, students drill more complicated sequences, do positional study, learn about fight strategy and participate in challenging sparring and wrestling rounds. Students can participate in tournaments locally and throughout the country.
Competing in Jiu Jitsu tournaments isn’t for every student. We believe, however, that students should try to compete in at least ONE tournament. A lot can be learned by “going out there and getting after it”. Winning or losing doesn’t matter; what matters is the work, dedication to training and focusing on a goal.
ADULTS MMA FIGHT SCIENCE

JitsuFit’s Fight Science MMA class is a mix of martial arts influenced aerobic exercise, strength conditioning and high intensity interval training, minus the angry-sweaty-smashing vibe. You fight at YOUR level and you train at YOUR pace. You’ll learn how to move like a fighter, how to hit like a fighter all while getting into fighting shape.
Instruction is intended for clients looking to improve general health and fitness, lose weight, build lean body mass, increase cardiorespiratory endurance, improve athletic performance, and learn basic self-defense. It’s a unique approach to fitness that is as fun as it is practical.
Our instructors have a mix of backgrounds and experience; karate, jiu jitsu, boxing. They also continue to train themselves! Their dedication is your ally and their mission is always to help you achieve your goals.

ADULTS JIU JITSU
Students who know the basics are ready for the next challenge. This class teaches more techniques to build a grappling game plan. It includes sparring, or “rolling”, with instructors and classmates of all ranks and sizes. The heart of Jiu Jitsu is in the trials experienced through the rolling sessions and is what makes it such an effective martial art.
This is also the class that reinforces community and team spirit. Students grow through hard work and perseverance towards individual goals, but the team spirit is understood because nobody in Jiu Jitsu gets any better without others.
