Team Rhino is excited to offer this unique program for your three year old.
It’s never too early to introduce your young child to the benefits of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu! Our Baby Rhinos program is specifically designed for children as young as three years old.
Through fun and safe games, your child will learn how to move their bodies while being introduced to the fundamentals that will set them up for success in their Gracie Jiu-Jitsu journey.
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu will help improve their balance, coordination, and body awareness while also building their confidence, discipline, and social skills.
When they turn 4 they are able to move up to our Lil Rhinos program.
This program is offered in six week sessions, with the first starting October 2, 2023.
If you would like your child to participate in an upcoming session and to reserve their spot in the program, please email [email protected].
Our vision for our Lil Rhinos program (ages 4-6) is for kids to develop a love for Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, while they are introduced to the basic techniques in a fun and positive environment, where encouragement and skill development go hand in hand.
Our Lil Rhinos will understand the concept of tapping out when something doesn't feel right, ensuring their safety at all times.
They will develop self-control and the ability to release their partner when they tap, promoting respect and discipline.
Students will learn how to listen and follow instructions from our experienced instructors while showing respect towards fellow students and instructors, creating a positive and supportive training environment.
A few examples of the fundamentals students will be taught throughout the program is Back Mount, Guard, Side control top/bottom, Guard Pass, Standing defense, Drilling, and live grappling.
Once a student can demonstrate focus, teamwork, ability to use and apply the learned techniques, and receive approval from instructors, they will move into our more challenging, 45-minute advanced Lil Rhinos class.
Rest assured, this is not babysitting. These kids are grappling... and they will become awesome at it!
Team Rhino's Gracie Jiu-Jitsu program offers a range of benefits that make it a preferred choice for parents when it comes to enrolling their children. One primary reason is addressing instances of bullying that can significantly impact a child's self-esteem.
Unlike traditional organized sports, where not all children may feel comfortable participating, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu provides a unique avenue for physical activity without the pressure of sitting on the sidelines, waiting for their turn.
Through Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, children can engage in physical exercise in a supportive environment that emphasizes skill development and personal growth rather than competition. This approach helps children build confidence and self-esteem as they progress in their training.
As students gain proficiency in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques under the guidance of our experienced instructors, they become eligible to join our Advanced Crash classes, further enhancing their skills and confidence.
What sets Team Rhino’s program apart? Here are some key features: Customized Introduction: We provide a personalized introduction to our program, where you'll receive one-on-one attention to familiarize yourself with our program's structure, grappling safety, and fundamental techniques.
Emphasis on Safety: Ensuring the safety of our students is our top priority. Before engaging in live grappling and attending open mats, participation in the mandatory orientation class is required.
Progressive Learning: Our curriculum is designed in a sequential manner, consisting of sets of drills. This approach helps you retain the techniques better and enables you to apply them effectively during grappling sessions.
Structured Advancement: Team Rhino follows a structured curriculum for all belt levels, guaranteeing consistent criteria for promotion and clear expectations for progression.
Tailored Classes: To cater to individual needs, our classes are divided into three levels - beginners (White belts/Green belts), intermediate (blue belts), and advanced (purple belt and higher). Each level has dedicated instructors who focus on delivering the specific curriculum for that particular belt level
