A great way to get kids and youth involved in a practical martial art and physical activity that trains them both physically and mentally. In a fun and safe environment, children will learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Self Defense techniques.
This class promotes a healthy self-confidence, positive attitudes, discipline, respect, problem-solving, and many other beneficial developmental qualities such as balance, coordination, focus, and self-control. With these teachings, youth learn valuable life skills while building friendships - and of course - having fun!
Classes are taught by Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt, Professor Diana Trang (see bio below).
Professor Diana has been in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) community for 20 years. "Professor" is the rank earned when a person achieves Black Belt rank in BJJ ("Professor" meaning "Teacher" in Brazilian Portuguese). Over this time, Professor Diana has taken part in the growth of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Canada and is one of the first female pioneers of BJJ in Western Canada. When she is not regularly teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes, she is also teaching Yoga and Ginastica Natural (body movement) classes to adults and children. She is also often found volunteering her time sharing her skills at charity and community events, collaborating with various organization in YYC, and advocating in the trauma community. She is passionate about sharing and teaching healthy and empowering life practices - but not only this - she also represents women in a male-dominated sport and is a proud mother to 2 boys. Professor Diana has also competed and successfully won many local and international BJJ competitions.
