10th Planet San Mateo Junior Jitsu: Ages 8-14

Between the ages of 8-14, your child experiences dramatic changes in their mental, physical, and emotional life.

The decisions and experiences they encounter during this time can leave a lasting impression throughout adulthood. 

When kids participate in sports activities, they significantly reduce risk factors for:

  • Depression
  • Substance abuse and risk-taking behaviors
  • Cardiovascular diseases

Signing your child up for Jiu Jitsu at 10th Planet San Mateo helps them internalize the belief  that they have control over their health and wellbeing.

Build the Foundation for a Lifetime of Wellness

At 10th Planet San Mateo, we’ll help your child set and achieve goals, build leadership skills, and more.
Here are some of the benefits you can expect when you sign your child up for Jiu Jitsu:

Bully-Proof Self-Defense - Adolescence is a time where children are testing their boundaries with others. 

At 10th Planet San Mateo, your child will learn the skills necessary to defend themselves while having fun at the same time. They’ll learn how to confidently stand up for and protect themselves and others from school-yard bullies. These skills will empower your child to show up in the world as a self-assured leader for the rest of his or her life.

World-Class Instruction - Every instructor at 10th Planet San Mateo is patient, encouraging, and a world-class competitor. Your child will learn to set and achieve goals whether they are interested in tournaments or just having fun.

Focus - Modern technology is a constant source of distraction for both kids and adults. 

Because of the nature of grappling and performing submission holds, Brazillian Jiu Jitsu is highly effective for conditioning focus. Similar to a chess match, BJJ requires you to remain calm and in the moment to neutralize your opponent. 
A healthy side effect is that your child will learn to focus more deeply in other areas of life as well.

Social Skills - We pride ourselves on fostering a positive and encouraging environment for all. 

Your child will learn confidence and self-defense while also making new friends. He or she will walk out of the gym after every class with the self-assurance to relate to others and face the world with more confidence..
