Sampa is big enough to keep u learning and changing but small enough to be friendly, inviting and oh so challenging. If you want to work out and never be bored, u got to join a bootcamp session. It is awesome. Julie is the best! Always on point! She knows her stuff and is always willing to help you be a better you. Very cool gym!

Sampa is a top tier BJJ academy. The inside is huge with plenty of room, the staff is always friendly and informative, the students have a reciprocating desire to learn and get better, and the instructors are passionate and patient to teach and excited to see you succeed. Professor Nathan Basseto is incredible and I highly recommend him

If you are looking for a BJJ academy that stays true to the art of BJJ, this place is it. Sampa is owned by a globally recognized 4th degree black belt named Professor Renato Migliaccio. Prof. Renato strives to provide high quality BJJ classes and it shows through his continued practice to maintain training in BJJ and other mixed martial arts. Prof. Renato has the ability to recognize the interests and athletic needs of the community he serves. I highly recommend this academy for children as young as 3 up to adults. If you come to Sampa you will be warmly welcomed to the Sampa family.

Hands down the best choice I ever made for my son. He’s learned discipline, has more confidence, and can defend himself.
Clean facility, amazing staff, and Prof. Renato is very involved with his students.

Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Its Benefits

Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Its Benefits

Kids gain a lot of benefits by participating in martial arts training programs. Martial arts make a person strong and fit apart from contributing to a number of other life-changing traits and skills. Parents, around the world, have realized the benefits and are pursuing children to take up courses in martial arts. Common martial arts that children normally enroll for are karate, kung-fu, judo and kick-boxing.

Martial arts improve body fitness levels, general well-being and the stamina of a person. It is essential for children to be exposed to such trainings as they groom children in a variety of skills ranging from self-confidence, social skills to teaching those ways of protecting themselves in the event of an attack.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one such self-combat technique that helps kids and children to protect themselves from people who are bigger, stronger and mightier than they are. Unlike other martial arts where combat techniques are a combination of kicks and punches and that inflict personal injury or pain to the opponent, Jiu Jitsu leverages various combat techniques that are gentle on the opponents so as not to hurt them but strong enough to defeat them. The uniqueness of this technique lies in the fact that it is a non-violent means of fighting people and can be used by adults and children alike. It is a combination of clasping techniques and ground movements that leave an impact on the opponent.

Children derive a plethora of benefits by taking up courses in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Following are some of the advantages of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu:

Enhance levels of Self-confidence

Sine Jiu Jitsu enables children to defeat people who are stronger and powerful than they are it contributes to increased levels of self-esteem and self-confidence. Enhance confidence levels help children to set ambitious goals and achieve them in life.
