Kids Jiu Jitsu (Gi and No-Gi)

Combining Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Wrestling for Girls and Boys

Kids No-Gi Jiu Jitsu

At MatTime® our focus has always been to better the kids that walk through our door. We look to boost their confidence and help them to become physically and mentally stronger by way of Kids Jiu Jitsu for girls and boys. Centally located between Auburn, Loomis and Rocklin, we'll expend some of their energy and help you build strong kids.

What Makes Kids Jiu Jitsu at MatTime Unique?

MatTime is centered in the communities of Penryn, Loomis and Auburn - which has a long tradition of developing great wrestlers. Del Oro High School located in Loomis, has one of the top High School wrestling programs in the state of California and MatTime serves to continue this tradition by way of offering grappling to Kids (boys and girls) at a young age - be it Jiu Jitsu or Wrestling. Because we have Jiu Jitsu classes where we do not wear a gi (referred to as "No-Gi Jiu Jitsu") wrestling becomes a very strong component and is integrated into our classes. As a result, MatTime is the premier Jiu Jitsu academent for building hybrid grapplers that are strong in both wrestling and submissions. The benefit of this is that the kids can choose to stay in Jiu Jitsu, transition to wrestling and become a high school wrestler, or continue to do both. In any case, the end product is that these kids become well-versed in both disciplines which will make them unique when they reach their teens. In the end, MatTime builds strong kids.

BJJ Fundamentals

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.
