BJJ IS FOR ANYONE!
Welcome friends, My name is David and I am lead instructor at Knights Academy. I am a Kansas native who fell in love with Ju-jitsu over 10 years ago. I currently teach the fundamentals of Ju-jitsu for kids 8-12 and for adults 13+. Those who join will gain fundamental and applicable knowledge of self defense in a fun and challenging environment. Whatever your goals are you can achieve them. If you believe you can,
I ensure you will!
These classes are tailored to best match the age and size of kids who attend. These classes are for boys/girls who are looking for a new challenge. Kids who join will gain an understanding of the crucial fundamental ju-jitsu movements, and will acquire new abilities through drills and games designed to make them stronger physically and mentally. Students will learn in a fun/engaging atmosphere through positive reinforcement while still maintaining a fun and competitive environment. Each student will come to understand their individual successes come from supporting and making their teammates better in this pursuit. The specific ju-jitsu applications taught will be: position dominance, position escapes, minor self defense, and take downs. All these applications will be taught and overseen by the head instructor at all times.
The curriculum will teach students all the essential techniques to empower the individual in situations where self-defense or dominance is the last and only option. Self-defense will be applicable for both men and women and will vary in severity. Fundamental ju-jitsu movements will be taught during this class along with the strengths and weaknesses of all the positions. All the aspects of ju-jitsu will be taught with the addition of submissions. Submissions will vary from: chokes, joint locks, to arm/leg bars. Classes will finish with a controlled live rolling from a previously decided position. Goals for each student will be clarified prior to for each student to be victorious from their beginning spots. The purpose of this academy is to bring out the best and most competent version of each student who enters.
