Tips to Finding the Best San Diego Kids Jiu Jitsu:
Tip #1: Look for an academy that makes you feel right at home from the moment you step foot through the doors. We would normally recommend doing some online research as the first step in getting to know more about a place of business, but in a case where you will be getting personally involved with the members of a school or an academy, the rules are a bit different. Here is a situation where what others think or believe is second to what you find to be true. For this reason we recommend going to the facility and getting a first-hand look at what’s going on. Feel free to contact Clark Gracie Jiu Jitsu in your search for the right facility that caters to kids Jiu Jitsu.
Tip #2: Stop by unannounced at a time that will coincide with when your kids will most likely be attending a class, and ask to stay and observe. This is the best way to gain insight into what is going on in what will probably be their class. Take notice of the class size, how well the instructor demonstrates technique, how the instructor works with beginning students, whether communication is clear, how patient the instructor appears to be, and whether all students in the class receive equal treatment, regardless of their ability. Too often, a Jiu Jitsu instructor will favor the more athletic students while ignoring the others. At Clark Gracie Jiu Jitsu, you’ll find instructors that champion all levels of progress; the hallmark of a great academy.
Tip #3: Find a San Diego kids Jiu Jitsu class that is close to where you live. Unless you want your regular trips to the academy to become tiresome or inconvenient, seek out a facility that is on the way to places you typically visit, or nearby where you live. If you cannot realistically see yourself driving your kids to and from classes without it becoming a headache, keep searching. The exception to the rule would be if you’ve found an exceptional school that offers what most other academies are unable to offer. Feel free to stop by Clark Gracie Jiu Jitsu to have a look around and speak with the instructors. We think you’ll find it to be one of the best Jiu Jitsu schools in the Bay Area.
Tip #4: Look closely at the other students as you observe an academy and form an opinion. The students will tell a greater story than the instructor will. See whether the students are happy and friendly toward new students. Ask your child how he or she felt when you were mixing with the class. Clark Gracie Jiu Jitsu welcomes you and your child to stop by to observe a class or two, speak with their students and instructors, and get a feel of whether the academy is the right San Diego kids Jiu Jitsu school for your family.
