Kids Martial Arts

Why choose Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu over other martial arts for your child?

While Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a comprehensive martial art that addresses striking, takedowns and grappling, we focus on teaching kids to use leverage and technique to subdue their opponents without using punching or kicking.  This method allows students to maximize their strengths, even if they are faced with a bigger, stronger opponent.  Because we teach self-defense without striking, our students are able to effectively keep themselves safe, without having to resort to punching or kicking.

We are a Fort Collins Martial Arts Academy That Offers Fun, Interactive And Safe BJJ Training For Kids, Ages 4-13.

“McMahon’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has helped our son in every area of his life.”
Our son has had the privilege of taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Finnie McMahon for the past three years. Jiu-Jitsu has helped our son in every area of his life from schoolwork, discipline, and respect, to self-esteem and coordination. Finnie has an amazing rapport with children. He is able to combine his expertise in Jiu-Jitsu with patience, kindness and encouragement. He creates the perfect atmosphere for kids to learn and love Jiu-Jitsu. We highly recommend McMahon BJJ!
