Kent Moody – Purple Belt Kioto BJJ
Kent Moody manages the kids’ program at Universal. The program was developed for children ages 7-16 and focuses on bjj, wrestling and self-defense. Our goal is to create champions on and off the mat. We focus on the values of focus, discipline, and respect. The program is built on the principles of positive feedback and controlled order. We want our students to be confident in themselves, but also have respect for others and authority.
The atmosphere in the kids’ class is fun. We develop jiujitsu skills by playing games and having controlled competitions. The program focuses on the fundamentals of bjj that will serve the children best in competition and incorporates basic self-defense
