San Diego Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy Mission Statement

Mission Statement for Adults

Mission Statement:

Carlsbad Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy & Mixed Martial Arts is a facility formulated to teach martial arts essentials to people of all skill levels from any age group, gender, or background, while simultaneously promoting personal improvement, increased physicality, self-defense, self-esteem, and mutual respect for others in a fun and safe environment.  If you apply yourself every class and strive to be the best version of yourself, you can:
•    Increase flexibility
•    Lower stress levels
•    Lose Weight
•    Gain muscle mass
•    Raise endurance
•    Increase dexterity

Positive Attitude:

While some programs are aimed at excessive criticism, Carlsbad focuses on being positive, through helpful motivational techniques, goal-oriented schedules, and handcrafted inspirational advice from our outstanding staff.

Self Confidence:

We focus on encouraging you to take chances you might not otherwise and to test your personal physical boundaries. With each move mastered and belt earned, you will grow more confident in your abilities.  Eventually, the confidence you gain in class will translate to the real world, where your social skills, romantic engagements, and business endeavors benefit from an injection of confidence.  Essentially, you will learn to be a more positive person, a go-getter, and a risk-taker through your persistent practice in the martial arts.

Self Defense:

Martial arts, such as Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, teach mental and physical self-defense.  With physical self-defense, you will learn to improve your cardio, strength, flexibility, quickness, and energy to promote better health through throwing, submitting, and rolling with opponents.  While at first glance, these skills seem conducive to a physical altercation, martial arts tend to preach the avoidance of conflict.  In the second form of martial arts, known as mental self-defense, students are taught to resolve conflicts through non-violent measures, instead of immediately resorting to fighting.  In fact, at Carlsbad, the students are taught to think defensively as well, by evading potentially dangerous places and scenarios, which could spark physical confrontations.

Mission Statement for Kids

Mission Statement:

At Carlsbad, your child will gain essential skills, which will lead to academic, athletic, and financial success later on down the line.  Your child will learn self-discipline through the practice of self-restraint during group training sessions  They will find an outlet for their extra energy by expending themselves in physical activity, which increases hand-eye coordination and general dexterity.  Your child will be taught the value of accomplishment, as they will be required to set goals in order to progress to the next belt.  In addition,  they will learn respect, not only for the teachers and their fellow classmates, but for themselves.  They will become better listeners, due to the regular instruction, and this teaching will make them better at socializing and working within the confines of a team.  Finally, they will learn physical self-defense, but the intangible skills and abilities they learn outside of the physical portion of the training will prepare them to deal with any situation life throws at them.

Why Parents Love Our Classes:

Many activities children participate in these days focus upon competition, but blind competition rarely breeds characteristics such as confidence, respect, humbleness, gregariousness, and studiousness, all attributes gained from participating in a martial arts program.  Whether it is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Judo, parents simply love our classes because their children grow as people each time they pass into and out of the door.  Rather than emphasizing winners and losers per se, our classes highlight the multitude of benefits associated with being a well-rounded person in society.  For this reason, any student, adult or child, who studies at Carlsbad, will walk away with pivotal lessons they can utilize for the rest of their life.
