HOLLYWOOD BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Newsletter – April 2016
In order to offer the best program to our students, we added last month 2 Fundamentals classes and another No-Gi class per week. Check out our 2016 Winter Schedule online
KIDS CLASS – April 1st
This Friday, April 1st, Coach Tim will teach an EXTRA KIDS CLASS at 5:15pm.
The Hollywood Brazilian Jiu Jitsu kids program is the perfect tool to change your child’s life forever. The lessons learned both on and off the mat will instill in them a confidence and self belief that will continue with them throughout their lives. Our anti-bullying system has been reverse engineered to safely and effectively repel any aggressor, with truly phenomenal results.
If you want to instill discipline, determination, leadership, commitment, responsibility, and good sportsmanship in your child while simultaneously giving them the confidence to navigate through life’s waters with ease, then this is the program for you.
Dont miss it!
