"As a student of McHugh Jiu Jitsu, I seek to develop TRUE CONFIDENCE through: knowledge in the mind, strength in the body, & a non-quitting spirit!"

Student Creed

"Confidence. Community. Achievement.
It's no secret that a child's ability to experience achievement early on will dictate his or her success throughout life. Like anything else, success is a skill! Our Kids' Jiu Jitsu Program is built around this concept.
In Jiu Jitsu there is no smart, or not, there is simply different. Everyone learns at different rates, and expresses their knowledge differently. BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) allows kids to learn and grow at their own pace. There is no standardized testing, and they're being measured not against their peers but against their own potential.
Any kid who steps on the mat is gifted, and the magic of Jiu Jitsu is that it allows those gifts to be revealed.
What's great about Jiu Jitsu is that there are no dangerous punches and kicks; it's a martial art based on grappling and control. That means it's not only incredibly effective for kids of all sizes and abilities, but it's age-appropriate. Our students aren't taught to inflict violence on other kids.
We truly believe Jiu Jitsu is the ultimate tool for developing a child's confidence and character, because we've seen it happen countless times. It works!"
