Bang Muay Thai Central Florida Kid's Program

Grappling Mastery’s Little Ninjas!

At Grappling Mastery, we teach kids the confidence, respect and self esteem they need to handle themselves in social situations.  Bullyproof Kids Classes consist of a combination of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Bang Muay Thai Kickboxing Classes.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will teach your child, among many other things, how to defend themselves without resorting to punches or kicks. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a Grappling style using joint locks and leverage rather than striking.  Our Bang Muay Thai, Little Ninjas Classes teach your child how to avoid strikes while effectively counterattacking.  Muay Thai Kickboxing IS a striking style and will teach how to properly punch and kick.

Kids build confidence and relationship skills at Grappling Mastery.

“This training is one of the best things we have done for Johnny! Brian Ruscio is by far the most patient, caring, happy go lucky instructors out there. Johnny loves learning from him and he’s doing very well at it. My Lake county friends…this is the guy for you if you want your kids to learn from the best!” – Tina Miller-Jones, Mother

“We have so much fun coming to train, very honored and proud to be a part of the Grappling Mastery Team!! It has been a life changing experience.” – Tracie Valdes, Mother

Ladies and Kids Muay Thai Kickboxing is great for self defense

Muay Thai Kickboxing Classes are also available!

“I train here with my daughter. It’s perfect not just in learning self-defense, but it gets us moving. Brian was also very accommodating to my schedule, which usually prevents me from participating in group classes. Brian is awesome, even in a group class he takes the time to review each move with you. As a beginner this is a plus. The Grappling Mastery group is like a family.” -Margie Bou, Mother

We are so pleased to find an instructor that has the patience, time, skill, great with kids, and all around passion to teach. It is great to learn from a Black belt instructor with Gracie lineage. My child was new to Jiu Jitsu and fell in love with the sport, he has progressed quickly thanks to great instruction. The best part about the school is the team atmosphere. Everyone helps everyone, what a great family and team we have become part of. – Mike Staton

“I cannot explain how excited my son is to go to class everyday! He loves it! The staff are hands on and extremely patient, but stern in the choice to teach the kids. My son knew nothing about BJJ before, but loves it. Practices all the time. If you are looking for a place that is kid/family friendly, growing with potential, and run by all around good people, this is the place :) (Mom to one extremely active, stubborn, and outgoing 6 year old.)” – Allison Folgore, Mother

“Awesome instructors. Brian (and Rita) are very patient with my son when he needs help. He’s a beginner and they are excellent with him even in a group setting.” – Heather Brooks, Mother

“The boys love it here. They are always eager to come. A huge thanks to the excellent trainers that have the patience to teach my boys something new.” – Jamie Hoover, Father

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Brian a few years back when I trained at my local Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy. He is very personable, professional, and knowledgeable about the sport. Brian’s integrity and commitment to the sport projects what all students of this sport need to also display. He is patient, and works with the students not only on good, solid technique, but also on varieties for those who need to modify their style. I appreciate his excellent customer service and willingness to work with the community as well. As a former teacher for Orange County Public Schools, I’ve asked Brian to participate in the annual Teach-In event in which professionals from the community give back and come to schools to inform students about different career opportunities and such. Brian was to speak about the importance of self-confidence and motivation in life to students grades 4-5.  I recommend Brian Ruscio for his excellent personality, professionalism, expertise on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and high integrity.” -Harriet Medrozo, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science        More Testimonials
