Li’l Ones BJJ Series: Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for Young Children

Every Thursday in April, Solarte BJJ is hosting a series of lessons for parents and young children (ages 3 to 7) introducing them to BJJ-related games and movements. This class was formerly offered as a series, but we have decided to make it an ongoing program. IMPORTANT NOTE: There will be periodic breaks in the class schedule (generally about 4 weeks on and 1 week off). Be sure to check our online calendar!

This is a unique program where both adults and children learn Brazilian Jiu-jitu basics while playing and having fun together. At least one parent/guardian must participate with their child(ren). Maximum of 2 children per parent/guardian.

Online Academy: A Great Learning Resource for Solarte Students!

The entire Solarte BJJ curriculum and conceptual framework is now available online! For $20/month you can have an invaluable reference to help you with your jiu jitsu journey.
