Welcome to the Best Kids Martial Arts Program in Corona!

An estimated three million children miss school every month because they fear bullies. The zero-tolerance policy which strictly prohibits students from defending themselves in school systems has created a very tough situation for both parents and children. Victims not only fear getting beat up and/or harassed by bullies, but also fear getting in trouble for defending themselves. We teach our young students to first try and verbally handle the situation without using any physical force, we actually give them very specific phrases and responses to common bullying behaviors. We then advise them to tell an adult about the situation. Only when all options have been exhausted do we advise them to use their skills. We believe that patience and tolerance are huge parts of being a good Martial Artist. However sometimes the fight picks you and there is no other choice but Self-Defense. No other Kids Martial Arts classes in Corona, California discuss these vital topics. This is what sets Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) apart from all of the other Martial Arts schools in Corona. Enrolling your child in our classes could mean the difference between them being bullied in school or being 100% confident when they walk the hallways. When kids are confident the bullies leave them alone.


Our kids' martial arts programs in Corona, CA. focus entirely on defense and using non-violent takedowns and control positions (competition as well for the more dedicated and committed students).  This makes Jiu Jitsu an effective and safe self-defense system for children. Almost every other martial art relies on overpowering the opponent with violent kicks and punches. This often backfires for the student especially if he or she is smaller or younger. What if a student cannot overpower the attacker? What if a student does happen to punch or kick the bully and injures another child badly? This risk involved with these methods is just not worth it. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) in Corona offers a tested and proven method that will help your child gain the confidence that they need to be successful. 

Instead of fighting fire with fire, our students learn that they should fight fire with water.


 The strategy in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to close the distance, take the bully to the ground and to control the bully until an adult arrives to help.

By introducing youth martial arts students to real-life scenarios in a controlled and structured environment the students learn true confidence and super realistic self-defense techniques. Students also learn the true meaning of work-ethic, respect, self-discipline, focus and confidence. A confident child is a Bully-Proof Child!

The reality is that the average kids' Martial Arts programs in Corona engage in outdated and dangerous training methods. Things such as karate board breaking, karate forms, and outdated weapons are not only unsafe but also highly ineffective in preparing students for realistic street self-defense in an actual altercation. In these more commercialized martial arts schools it is far easier to achieve belt ranks. Kids get promoted to black belts too quickly and are given a dangerous false sense of security.

At Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) we provide a very specific attendance tracking system, a safe and structured class format and an easy to follow curriculum. The students are expected to demonstrate respect, focus, and discipline at all times. Our standards are very high for our staff of professional instructors, we only hire the most patient and enthusiastic instructors to teach the children. At Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) in Corona, we take great pride in providing the most organized and controlled kids' Martial Arts classes in the area. If you have ever observed classes at another Martial Arts school you have most likely seen disruptive students wasting class time, lack of overall control and teenage instructors running the classes. For a parent that is serious about your child learning self-defense Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) is the best option. 


If you are interested in instilling your child with unshakable confidence while reinforcing positive values and good character, the youth Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) program is for you!!!

 We are committed to running the best kids martial arts classes in Corona.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Helps Teens Lose Weight

Keeping your child healthy and active is a struggle that every parent faces. This compounded with so many addiative in our food, obesity in children continues to rise. Meet Sophia Zika. She started Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the age of 11 because her mom was looking for something for her older brother to help him with his ADHD. Sophia tagged along to Jiu Jitsu classes and began to train as well. 

Adults, but especially kids should not be focusing on the number on the scale, rather on being active, fueling your body with good food and having a healthy body image. Sophia has changed so much from when she started Jiu Jitsu

Sophia has been training Jiu Jitsu for a little over two years and is very close to getting her gray with black stripe belt. She is one of the most dedicated students we have at Pacific Top Team Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Corona.  In the 2 years Sophia has been training she has learned out to defend herself, have discipline in her life. better focus, more patience and has made many new friends. She loves that Jiu Jitsu keeps her healthy and active while having lots of fun. 

Sophia began competing about 9 months after she had been training Jiu Jitsu. Her first competition went the way it does for may Jiu Jitsu competitors. She got taken down and stuck on bottom with a knee in belly for most of the fight. Sophia is a true champion though and she didn't let that stop her. She returned to the mats and continued training. She learned new techniques and sharpened old ones. She continued to lose weight and become more athletic. In the last 18 months she has competed in over 15 tournaments and is reaching the top of the podium almost every time. 

Sophia's favorite submissions currently are the triangle and bow and arrow. You can find her training at Pacific Top Team in Corona pretty much every day. She loves to spend time on the mats and is usually one of the last students to leave the Academy!

Congratulation Sophia on your recent Gold at Dream! We all are super proud of you!
