The Kids Program at Triumph BJJ was developed by Black Belt John Fain, MSW. Professor Fain is a former Adjunct Psychology and Sociology Professor and Child and Family Therapist.

Students at Triumph BJJ not only learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) but also develop control, coordination, dexterity, stamina, strength, flexibility, self-awareness, respect and the ability to negotiate confrontations. These attributes translate extremely well to all aspects of life.

Our kids do not listen just because they are told to. Once they become a part of the program the natural hierarchy becomes apparent. Older children who are mentored by adults, in return mentor the younger children. This proven method of learning has been practiced throughout time around the world. This method further results in a fun and nurturing environment for everyone involved.

Kids in our program range in age from 3 to 12 years. Kids at Triumph Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu progress through the following belt system developed by the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation


I . WHITE – Beginner, any age

II. GREY – 04 to 06 years of age

III. YELLOW – 07 to 15 years of age

IV. ORANGE – 10 to 15 years of age

V. GREEN – 13 to 15 years of age

At age 13 kids join the adult program where they work towards adult ranking which begins at age 16.
