Bel Air Learning Center is a Jiu-Jitsu program for kids who aren’t yet ready or simply need a little bit more support to join a regular martial art program. We also teach Technology classes for students who have shown success with the Jiu-Jitsu program. Our private and small group classes accommodate a child’s interests, strengths and challenges—all in a safe, fun and collaborative environment.
Alex and Eduardo have been involved in diverse children’s education programs including special needs for over 20 years. They have trained martial arts together since 2009 and have taught children, teenagers and adults since 2012 across 7 martial arts gyms in Chicago. Today, they both train and teach at Redzovic Jiu-Jitsu and Top Level MMA. Passionate about martial arts, they want to inspire children with special needs to thrive.
Jiu-Jitsu can seem like a game to kids as they’re on the floor sparring or “live rolling.” The many benefits of Jiu-Jitsu include:
Jiu-Jitsu builds strength and promotes core stability and agility
By being engaged in a highly technical activity, students are
forced to pay close attention in order to execute the necessary steps
Kids interact with each other as they join in a fun activity
As kids meet the physical and mental challenges of Jiu-
Jitsu, their confidence grows along with their abilities
