Fuquay-Varina Martial Arts Kids

Kids Martial Arts

Kids love martial arts and that makes martial arts a great way to get kids active and healthy.  Martial arts also provides a great way to teach kids about respect, self estteem, self confidence, discipline and how to handle bullying.


At Schell Shock BJJ in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina we teach kids the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ is a martial art like Karate and has been proven to be great for kids teaching them confidence, control and discipline while helping them gain better fitness.

While Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art like Karate it has some interesting differences. Karate uses punches and kicks mostly for self defense but instead Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches kids to use holds like wrestling to escape, defend and safely protect themselves in the same situations. Karate uses sparring with punches and kicks as part of the training but instead Brazilian Jiu Jitsu uses games we call “rolling” which are safe and fun sessions similar to wrestling without the punches and kicks.

In Karate you are taught to maintain a distance so you can punch and kick but in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu you learn to close the distance and use leverage to overpower and subdue your opponent. Teaching kids to do this helps them to understand their personal space and to feel comfortable getting out of situations without having to punch or kick to do so.

At Schell Shock BJJ in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina we love kids martial arts. John Schell, the head instructor has raised four kids of his own in fact. We would love for you to bring your child, children and the whole entire family in to experience a class of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for yourselves and see just how safe, fun and effective it truly can be!
