What Makes Kids Jiu Jitsu at MatTime Unique?
Centered in the communities of Penryn, Loomis and Auburn - with a top High School wrestling program in the state of California nearby (Del Oro High School) - MatTime is building on this tradition of local grappling by adding Jiu Jitsu for kids.
Most of our training is done with out a Gi (referred to as "No-Gi Jiu Jitsu") and as a result wrestling becomes more integrated into our cirriculum. The end result is that we build hybrid grapplers that are strong in both subissions and wrestling. Kids benefit from this hybrid approach as they can transition to wrestling and become high school wrestlers, and even continue to crosstrain.
The Benefits of Jiu Jitsu for Kids
Enrolling your kids in a combat sport is an opportunity for kids (boys and girls) to do something difficult but also have fun while they're doing it. As our society becomes more digital and has services that do evertyhing for us - many will forget that hard work, resilience and 'grind' is what made this country. We believe it is important that kids grow up with something difficult (combat sport) in their lives.
Whether your child has never engaged in sports or marital arts, or is an experienced martial artist they'll learn the fundamentals of a proven form of self defense and absolutely will become better able to defend themselves. Beyond this, our wrestling influence in our Jiu Jitsu will make them not only proficient, they'll become stronger, mentally tougher. Here are some of the benefits in getting kids involved in Kids Jiu Jitsu.
Cardio Vascular Fitness.
Grow more comfortable in demanding situations.
Ability to work and train with others.
Enhanced agility and balance (significant benefits other sports)

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Jiu Jitsu is a combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. Jiu Jitsu embraces and demonstrates the concept that a smaller, weaker person can not only defend themselves against a bigger, stronger opponent using proper technique and leverage but also disable them by applying joint-locks and choke holds. When combined with a stand-up art (boxing, kick-boxing, Muay Thai) and wrestling it completes full-circle level of self defense that we see exhibited today in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
The roots of Jiu Jitsu are from Japan, specifically Judo ground fighting (newaza) that eventually made it’s way to Brazil. The sport has since morphed into the art that it is today by way of Carlos and Helio Gracie, who, along with Luiz França and Oswaldo Fadda founded the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
