We offer kids and youth programming for children ages 6-14. Our programs are split by age and developmentally appropriate. Kids can enrol in the Judo program, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program or both. Our focus is creating a strong foundation so that every child can transition seamlessly into adult programs when they are old enough. Ipê also emphasizes the importance of developing strong character: humility, kindness, responsibility and respect.
We offer a 7 day free trial period to anyone interested in joining. During this period, adults can try any of our adult classes in BJJ or Judo. Kids can try classes in the BJJ or Judo program corresponding with their specific age.
At the end of the trial period, you may choose to join as a member but are under no obligation to. Anyone participating in the free trial will be given a training uniform (gi). Should you decide to become a full member, the gi will be yours to keep.
