Every day in the United States, an estimated 150,000 kids miss school due to fear or intimidation of bullies. In fact, many believe that fear of bullying may be the leading cause of low self-confidence in children. Worse, statistics suggest that less than 15% of kids actually report acts of bullying. We know that most bullies are insecure and seek self-esteem normally by harassing smaller or weaker children. These negative experiences often create psychological trauma that might last a lifetime.

The Valente Brothers Youth Program focuses on the physical, emotional and mental well being, as well as the education of our children. It is “Education for Life.” Firstly, we provide our young students with the most powerful defensive skills so they will be prepared to confidently stand up against bullies.

In addition, we assist our students with the development of characteristics and skills they will need in order to live a happy and balanced life. Our young pupils develop discipline, respect, courage, athleticism, and patience among other important values. We promote nonviolent resolutions to conflict.

The Valente Brothers Youth Program focuses a great deal of attention to the development of self-esteem.  A good self-image is the basis of a well functioning, happy and successful child.

Our curriculum integrates physical education and self-defense techniques with conditioning and skill oriented games aimed at improving your child’s coordination, motor skills, agility and flexibility. Every instructor receives training in our unique teaching methodology, enabling them to deliver learning through dynamic interaction with the children, using a variety of approaches that meet the various learning types of individual children, whether visual, kinesthetic or auditory. To learn more about our school set up a free introductory class.

Useful Defensive Skills For Children

Little Champs TM (3-5)

The Little Champs class focuses primarily on building the winning attributes needed for learning and productive living such as discipline, courtesy, confidence, character, focus, concentration, and teamwork. In addition, we focus on building basic athletic skills like strength, flexibility, and coordination. The Little Champs classes are extremely entertaining and allow children to develop useful defensive skills in a recreational way.  Our professors are trained to always treat the children in a positive manner looking to constantly raise their self-confidence.

At Valente Brothers Jūjutsu, we employ a diverse teaching methodology within different fields of study aimed not only at providing practical self-defense knowledge, but also a holistic personal development. Through our unique pedagogy, we strive to help our young students develop their personalities as empowered members of their families and communities. Mutual respect and cooperation are encouraged, as well as socializing, problem solving and, of course, fun. We work hard to ensure that our young students stay away from all the negative habits that are so common with many teenagers. The instructors at Valente Brothers serve as powerful role models of positive and healthy behavior both on and off the mat.
