Kid-Jitsu® Instructor Certification Level 1

with Larry Shealy

Thursday, 9:00am-5:00pm

Register Today, Limited Spots Available



Kid-Jitsu® University, (KJU) is a “Teach the Teacher” workshop on how to teach children the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a SAFE, highly organized and technically efficient manner. Kid-Jitsu® was created by Larry Shealy, a 2nd Degree Black Belt in BJJ under Master Rigan Machado, as he saw a strong need to have a consistent means to teach children BJJ.

Kid-Jitsu® is the curriculum and Kid-Jitsu® University is how we deliver the curriculum in a highly structured, online curriculum that was created to teach you how to effectively add a children’s BJJ program, into your current school, as an addition to your current curriculum; and do it at a pace that you are comfortable with. Our teaching model is a classical type model of: “See it, Do it, and Teach it Back” to the group; and will prepare you to add your own Kid-Jitsu® University Program to retain current students, and attain new students; to participate in the 13 belt Kid-Jitsu® System.

The Kid-Jitsu® University Certification process consists of Four (4) Levels of Certification. Each Level will teach you how to teach to a particular belt level within the 13 Belts of Kid-Jitsu®. During this Kickoff Certification with Revgear University, we will be doing the Level I Certification.

PLEASE NOTE: These Certifications are designed to prepare you the instructor, to begin teaching children the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, in an organized and efficient manner with SAFETY and CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT as very critical elements. This is NOT a BJJ Adult Belting System.

In the Kid-Jitsu® Instructor Certification Level 1 we will:

  • We will discuss the history of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the history of Kid-Jitsu® and Kid-Jitsu® University
  • We will discuss and you will fully understand the PCS (Position-Control-Submission) theory of BJJ for kids
  • We will show, discuss and work with you through ‘The Hierarchy of Positions’ that we teach the kids, so you will have a thorough understanding of what positions we will be moving to
  • We will discuss and fully understand the SAFETY measures that we take with kids from all position, transitions, and submissions that we share with kids, and what techniques are ‘age appropriate only’. (this is covered in ALL Certification Levels)
  • We will warm-up using one of our warm-ups from KJU HQ. You will be doing some of the BJJ specific warm-up drills that we have the kids warm up
  • We will demonstrate to you the fundamental techniques that must be mastered in the White, and Grey Belts of the KJU Belts for kids.
  • We will discuss our C.O.R.E. Character Development Program that is woven into the Kid-Jitsu® Program. I will walk through each of the topics of C.O.R.E. and how we weave this ‘mat chat’ into our classes. (50 topics which you cover 1 per week, each year)
  • This will be a high octane, extremely busy day that you will see, do and teach the fundamentals techniques that you learn, back to the group. You will do hundreds of repetitions and you will demonstrate the techniques dozens of times.
  • This is not an easy course. We will have fun, but we will be very busy from start to finish
  • You are NOT guaranteed a Certification
    • YOU MUST be able to do each technique smoothly, and efficiently
    • YOU MUST be able to effectively teach each technique back to the group
    • YOU MUST be able to put together, with a group, a demo Kid-Jitsu® class and demonstrate how you would teach the class. Depending on class size we will have multiple groups
    • YOU MUST be able to pass a written test with a 90% score or above
  • We will also discuss, next steps…….. and demonstrate the use of the website and the many features that it offers to assist you in introducing your ongoing Kid-Jitsu® Program: Videos, Bullet Point break-down of techniques, testing criteria templates, grading templates, drills, class itinerary, blog, and so much more…..

We will be wearing a kimono, so please bring one or buy one at the event. You will leave this Level 1 Certification with the knowledge and confidence that you will need to start a successful Kid-Jitsu® Program in your school, as you begin to ‘plug-in’ to the ongoing curriculum at www.KJUniv.com and www.RevgearUniversity.com.
