Kids CXT System

Our Kids CXT System has been created for 6-12year olds who practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu*. We focus on play, and aim to develop Brazilian Jiu Jitsu essentials incidentally. The system is comprised of Games, Balance Drills and Movement Fundamentals (outlined below).

*A spotter is recommended for all of the techniques and drills in the Kids CXT System

Earthquake Game

GAMES

Our games are designed to develop Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fundamentals for our juniors. Some concepts, like posting or weight distribution, are often difficult to grasp. The backbone of our games are centred around reactivity and movement control, while incorporating an element of competition.

BALANCE DRILLS

Another invisible, but essential component of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is balance. Being aware of your Centre of Gravity (COG) is essential to staying in top position. The multi-directional instability of the CXT requires continuous, small adjustments to be made by our kids.

Movement Fundamentals

MOVEMENT FUNDAMENTALS

Unlike our adults CXT System which is centred around flow rolling, drilling and conditioning, we only focus on a handful of movements with our kids. There are several basic movements which are the building blocks of advanced techniques (hip switches, sitouts, gramby roll etc.). We aim at refining these basic movements and make them second nature.
