Colts MMA & BJJ
The Colts MMA & BJJ classes provide a mid-way point where 12-16yr olds can start to work on more advanced techniques while still training with partners their own size. The MMA classes cover a range of Striking (Punching, Kicking) and Grappling & Wrestling techniques, whilst the BJJ classes focus more exclusively on Grappling and related body mechanics.
Our Colts programme provides a controlled environment in which we encourage our teens to learn applications of physics and body mechanics in addition to building discipline & respect for others. We maintain a positive environment to learn, but also a physical outlet for them release stress and improve fitness.
We also provide a grading syllabus and access to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions to provide goals and training focus for the team throughout the year. We've had a strong team taking a range of medals at the NZ Grappler competitions and we are always looking to develop a deeper programme for our competitive youth. As of 2018 several of our former Colts MMA team members have gone on to have a successfull amateur career in competitive MMA.
The program is designed to facilitate the transition of younger teenagers from the youth classes into the adults classes.
