Salvosa BJJ kids classes in Toronto

Toronto bjj kids class

Unlocking your child’s FULL POTENTIAL is accomplished in a FUN & EASY way! Breaking through social barriers, lack of self-confidence and inactivity can be done through our unique program for kids of all ages in the Toronto, Scarborough, North York, Markham, Pickering and surrounding areas! Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is easy to learn when presented in the ideal environment (positive & encouraging) for children.

Through training in our program, children BENEFIT by gaining a clearer and more natural understanding of how their bodies feel, move and react to their physical environment. Learning how to fall properly, how to improve their position in unfortunate or dangerous situations and understanding their physical strengths and limitations are just some of the natural outcomes of our well-balanced curriculum.

In addition to these important physical benefits, children also develop positive mental attributes with LIFELONG impact: empowerment, confidence and high self-esteem; strong leadership, communication and social skills through constructive interaction with their teammates; discipline, work ethic and determination through motivated and consistent training; respect for their teachers, teammates and most importantly, themselves.

LITTLE NINJAS (ages 4 to 6)


In our LITTLE NINJAS 4-6 YEAR OLD GROUP, we aim to provide your children with the keys to starting their journey in the martial arts. Your child will learn important motor movements for Brazilian jiu jitsu training, including a thorough understanding of the basic positions required for further practice. Children are engaged through fun and challenging drills and exercises that will improve their overall coordination, flexibility, conditioning and mental focus. Most importantly, they will become proficient and familiar with the class setting and will enjoy a positive and encouraging team environment. This class serves as an excellent introduction and starting point for your child's martial arts adventure.

BJJ KIDS (ages 7 to 10)


In our BJJ KIDS 7-10 GROUP, students of TEAM ASCENSION will learn a wide variety of holistic skills. Our PRIMARY AIM is to help provide your child with the necessary life tools required for success--both in martial arts (specifically BJJ) and in the real world!

In our society, it is important for us to acknowledge the reality faced by our children everyday. Unfortunately, we cannot solely rely on our school systems to ensure that kids are protected from bullying, physical and verbal abuse from negative social networks and an erosion of their confidence levels due to obesity and inactivity, among many other physical and social challenges (eg. excessive video game-playing ---> no exercise whatsoever).

Although some extracurricular activities might provide our children with an outlet for physical expression and development, they are sometimes too competitive to provide a healthy balance, sometimes too narrow and superficial to help gauge and develop emotional wellbeing in our kids. There must be something deeper, something more meaningful to help our kids to conquer their fears and achieve their goals.

BJJ for TEENS (ages 11-14)


As TEAM ASCENSION, our genuine mission is to provide our students with all the basics. How to fall properly; how to stretch; how to breathe properly while sparring; how to be respectful to coaches and teammates; how to develop an inner resolve against all obstacles.... and how to SEE the bigger picture: that martial arts, BJJ and life are much more than just winning and losing.

Classes are positive, engaging and motivational. Yes, your children will learn the basic manoeuvers, build a foundation, enjoy better conditioning and utilize cutting-edge techniques. Some of our students have managed to capture provincial titles.... and TEAM ASCENSION has won multiple times as Ontario's top competition team, most recently in 2012& 2013--we are the reigning CHAMPIONS! However, we measure true success through your child's abilty to apply all of these tools to LIFE, the competition ground that matters most.



Among the martial arts, Brazilian jiu jitsu is especially PRACTICAL and EFFECTIVE for children because it concentrates heavily on close-range grappling applications. With thorough knowledge of grappling, children develop a sound, fundamental understanding of how to use their leverage to escape dangerous positions, how to deal with being grabbed and/or held against their will. It is not as likely or realistic for a child to defend against a bigger, stronger adversary solely through the use of striking techniques; rather, a strong awareness of grappling serves as a solid foundation and can be complemented with other tools.

Take advantage of this great opportunity to boost your child’s confidence through martial arts (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu / MMA). Our academy services the Toronto, Scarborough, North York, Markham& Pickering areas.

Perhaps more importantly, children in our programme will develop a GREATER level of comfort for all types of situations in their physical and social environment. UNLOCKING the unique abilities within each child and cultivating their tools for dealing with their surroundings is a PRICELESS benefit that we consistently strive for in EVERY class. Our program provides the opportunity for children to build strong fundamentals from an early age and utilizes an INNOVATIVE training methodology to bring LASTING RESULTS.

Practical techniques are creatively instilled through EXCITING games, cooperative exercises and role-playing scenarios that help to develop your child’s skills in a FUN and ENGAGING environment. Our children have shown the ability to understand and execute BJJ techniques just as our adult students do. Every single game or exercise played corresponds to important skills pertinent to their training. Our philosophy for teaching children is based on them having FUN while learning real, practical techniques that work.
