Yes, we have classes for a variety of ages and stages of development. Our youngest students are called Lil’ Dragons (ages 4 to 6).  This program presents a fun, yet very well structured approach to develop early stage motor skills, better listening abilities, and shows kids how to work well with others. We also teach simple Stranger Danger & Awareness, along with exciting Martial Arts games that build strength, agility and aims their endless energy in a positive direction.

Our Juniors Champions Program (ages 7 to 11) teaches goal-setting and is a great physical exercise program. We get kids into great shape and build their self-esteem and overall self-confidence.  We teach our kids valuable life skills that enhance solid character development and stress academic achievement. The majority of our Junior Black Belts are high academic achievers and well rounded athletes.

Our Adult Programs students are recapturing the energy and stamina of their youth.  Most will tell you that they are currently in the best shape of their lives.  It’s a versatile well rounded fitness program. Three keys areas of our fitness training include, flexibility, strength and muscle tone, along with stamina and endurance.

No matter what age, all students benefit from the emphasis on conditioning their mind, body and spirit. Mentally, students are developing the ability to concentrate and stay focused on their goals.  Physically, they are becoming healthier, happier and more fit, while learning valuable skills of self-defense. When it comes to the spirit, Martial Arts training triggers our positive emotions and teaches us to better control the negative ones.

Absolutely not! The best time to start your journey is right now! Our Basic Programs are designed to lay a strong foundation of skill and conditioning. Whether you’re a beginner to the arts, or you’ve had previous experience, each student will progress at the pace that is right for them. All new members are guided through a basic training routine that is modified to fit each individual’s needs and desires. Of course, if you’ve been an inactive adult it is always best to make sure you are healthy enough to participate in this type of activity.

New students generally train two times a week in our Basic Training and then are offered more classes and curriculum options once they qualify for a more advanced program. We offer classes for all ages and levels of ability six days a week, Monday through Saturday. Our Program Director will help you create an action plan to achieve your desired results.

It has been found that people that train the martial arts often see dramatic and continual improvements in many areas of their lives. Improvements in self confidence, self discipline and overall self esteem are common.  The many physical and health benefits realized through training have a positive long term impact and value to people of all ages, including, greater flexibility, endurance and energy, strength and muscle tone. Royce Gracie Academy OC Champions walk tall, stand proud and lead by example with the energy for excellence.

Kids with A.D.D./Attention Deficit Disorder are usually very active mentally as well as physically. Our Martial Arts classes are fast paced, fun and filled with a variety of activities.
