We Teach Children to Master Life

-everything else they learn from us is just a bonus

Every parent wishes for their child to be successful. But you can’t ALWAYS be there to help them. At Frontline Academy we teach children skills to tackle whatever challenge life can present. Be it at school, or in a future job interview.
We are not only teaching them a sport. We are giving them tools to win at life.

The World's Best Sport for Kids

As a parent you always want the best for your kids, for them to succeed and be happy. You want to guide them and keep them safe, every day.


Life is full of challenges. The best anyone can do is to be ready. To have the strength to solve the problems the world will present.


Brazilian Jiu-jitsu teaches children to face the world. It gives them the tools to take care of their own problems. To solve the puzzle that is life.


It teaches them about being strong, both physically and mentally. To be resilient.


In our kids program our students learn all of the most important and fundamental athletic skills: Balance, coordination, strength, endurance, timing and focus...


...but more important than that: Brazilian Jiu-jitsu develops mental skills such as confidence, intelligence and patience. And shapes children into more resilient and independent human beings.


Frontline Academy offers the perfect learning environment, designed for their specific needs:


  • Pedagogical methods: An approach that inspires students to learn, exercise and socialize.


  • Professional teachers: Experienced trainers that know how and what to teach (not volunteer parents “helping out” on the weekends).


  • Modern Facilities: The best equipment in newly built installations.


You are not only teaching them a sport, you are giving them tools to master life!

Give Them Tool to Succeed and Be Happy


What if you could give them the tools to solve their own problems? To take responsibility and walk with their own two legs. And grow into a responsible and successful adult.


What if you could “be there” for them, even when you can’t be present?


You can.

You can teach them to be independent, and take care of themselves. Solve their own problems.


And we can help!

How We Do It

Since 2015 we have been using Brazilian Jiu-jitsu to motivate our students to become a bit more independent and able to face the world around them!


And to grow up to be happy, responsible and successful adults. We give them tools to master anything. From school, to job interviews, to a future professional career. We teach problem-solving and INDEPENDENCE.


The nature of our sport motivates children to use their intelligence during training, and not only physical strength They learn that leverage and technique can solve any problem, inside or outside the mats.

Our teaching methods connect physical activity to mastery and positive experiences. The children practice realistic situations, while learning and progressing every day. The training is safe and FUN.


And the kids love it!
