The youth Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program at De la Costa Academy aims to create extra support for parents by teaching children and young adults discipline, self-control, improved self-esteem and the ability to focus better on tasks. To this end, our youth programs are designed not only to impart a solid understanding of technique and strategy but also to model respect, discipline and grit.
Those students who show an aptitude and willingness will have opportunities to compete with young athletes of similar levels from other academies, but competition is by no means a requirement for participation.
Classes are open to young men and women from 10 to 14 years of age, with exceptions made on a case-by-case basis.

“A safe, open minded and friendly place to learn Brazilian jiu jitsu from great coaches with real life experiences with high level competition to self defence out in the real world. Also a great place to make friends. I’ve been here for 2 years training and I couldn’t imagine calling any other gym home.”
