I give great value to another significant principle in training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu that is recognition of individuality. I believe that each child has a different means of understanding and perceiving the world around them. I consider each child individually and as part of the whole. Children learn at their own pace and to the best of their abilities. Our instructors know how to balance individual needs crucial to their improvement.
We are all unique people with extraordinary mental and physical characteristics and special talents. By recognizing these things accurately, we are able to help in maximizing everyone’s potential.
At Stonecoast we believe that one of our obligations is to preserve Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Therefore, we ask students to practice certain techniques and skills in a specific and designated manner with no digression. An ideal example of this learning our fundamental and tested techniques. This is a means of preserving the tradition of the art. It is expected that our students excel in our classes. Some learn faster while others do not. But this does not necessarily mean that I will demand all our students to also learn fast and compete at the highest levels. I welcome all students who are eager to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and have a very special skill that will follow them through their entire life.
