New Schedule for CageworX Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes

There will now be two sets of classes for the Youth/Teens Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes: 3:15 to 4pm (age 5-8) and 4-5pm (age 9-14) on M/W/F.

We are excited to see how much our Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes has grown since the move to 8th Street. The mats have been full of kids enjoying the classes and it is now time for us to ensure all of them get the best and safest possible training. With that goal in mind, as of Monday August 31st, we will be separating the youth BJJ classes into two groups:

1) 3:15 pm to 4 pm for children ages 5-8
2) 4pm to 5 pm for children ages 9-14

This change only affects the Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes. The Youth Muay Thai classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays will remain the same, with one class at 4pm.

Congratulations to our CageworX Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitors: (left to right) Anna, Chase, John and Thane

On January 10, 2015, the  CageworX Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu team participated in the very first ‘Chess on the Mat’ youth invitational BJJ tournament in Tacoma, WA.  And let me tell you, our kids looked great, dominating the competition!  We took four competitors: John (age 11) and Anna DeLacruz (age 6), Chase Cobb (age 11) and Thane Frandsen (age 8).  Anna took second place in her division and Thane took first in his very first competition. Chase took first place in his very first competition and John also took first in his division. John gamely took a last-minute invitation to participate for a championship. For that, he won a GIANT title belt that is about as big as he is!  Their families and the CageworX coaching staff couldn’t have been more proud of them! BIG congratulations to all the kids, thanks for the support given by their families and teammates in the CageworX Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Kids Classes. Special thanks to BJJ of Tacoma for creating a great opportunity for the kids to compete!
