REDMOND GRAPPLING ACADEMY
This class is perfect for children 6 and up (5 if they are mature). Not only will your child learn when and where it is approprite to defend themselves, and how to defend themselves, they will learn skills that they will take with them and apply in everyday life. Listening, self-control, attention to detail, positive self-image, discipline, and how to be competitive. Our children are the future. Through Jiu-jitsu, we can build a better future.
RULES & EXPECTATIONS
WHILE WE UNDERSTAND THAT KIDS HAVE A LOT OF ENERGY AND THE GYM IS A GREAT PLACE TO RELEASE IT, THERE ARE SOME GENERAL BEHAVIOR GUIDELINES THAT ALL STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO ADHERE TO.
DURING THE PERIODS OF TIME WHERE TECHNIQUE IS BEING SHOWN, THE STUDENTS WILL BE SITTING ON THE WALL AND WATCHING. THE MOVES WILL BE SHOWN SEVERAL TIMES AND ADDITIONAL HELP WILL BE GIVEN TO ALL STUDENTS AS THEY ARE LEARNING THE TECHNIQUE.
DURING THE DRILLING/ROLLING PORTIONS OF THE CLASS, STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO STAY WITH THEIR PARTNER AND NOT RUN AROUND THE MAT. THIS IS IMPORTANT AS IT IS NOT SAFE FOR THEM TO RUN AROUND WHILE OTHER STUDENTS ARE DRILLING OR ROLLING.
WE UNDERSTAND THAT KIDS DO NOT HAVE THE SAME ATTENTION SPAN FOR SITTING STILL AND FOCUSING ON ADULTS TALKING THE WAY THAT THE ADULT STUDENTS DO, AND OUR FIRST OPTION IS ALWAYS TO HELP THE KIDS LEARN IN THE BEST WAY THEY CAN, NOT TO SEND THEM OUT OF CLASS, BUT IF ATTEMPTS BY THE COACHES HAVE BEEN MADE TO KEEP THE STUDENT UNDER CONTROL AND THEY CONTINUE TO BE A DISRUPTION TO THE CLASS, THEY WILL HAVE TO SIT OUT FOR THE REST OF HOUR.
PURPOSEFULLY HURTING OR GOING TOO ROUGH WITH ANOTHER STUDENT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND WILL RESULT IN THE STUDENT NOT BEING ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE REST OF CLASS.
PARENTS ARE DISCOURAGED FROM COACHING/YELLING THINGS OUT TO THEIR CHILDREN DURING THE CLASS. WHILE WE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE JUST TRYING TO HELP THEM, WE FEEL THAT THE KIDS FOCUS BETTER AND UNDERSTAND MORE WHEN THE COACHES ARE INSTRUCTING THEM.
ALL STUDENTS SHOULD BRING A WATER BOTTLE WITH THEM TO CLASS!
