Want to mold your children into athletic, self confident, disciplined, goal crushers? Of course we do!! Martial arts done right (big key there, done right!) provide a backbone of these benefits and countless others. How many kids do you know that by the age of 16 have been working on goal setting for 10 years? Many of the kids in our class start as young as 5 years old and continue into adolescence and adulthood.

What makes RCW so unique and special is that the material we offer has been sourced from the best in the world for decades. Our Gracie Jiu Jitsu program for kids called Little Warriors is the most authentic around, and taught by experienced instructors to ensure the highest quality. This isn’t that strip mall activity you sign your child up for and they come away with a black belt in two years. Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a form of grappling that uses scientific positions and leverage to take on a bigger, stronger, opponent. Pioneered by Helio Gracie and his sons, it is now one of the most popular martial arts in the world. Chances are there’s a place that’s near you that offers something similar, but they simply can’t match the expertise at River City Warriors. Our head coach has been helping kids learn how to be successful in life for over 20 years and most of our staff has trained with Helio Gracie’s family and top students to reach this level. While other academies may look similar we can make definitive promises:

  • Your child will train in a safe, friendly, and welcoming environment.
  • Your child will develop true Gracie Jiu Jitsu skill and become bully proof!
  • Character building skills discussed every day like integrity, perseverance, self-discipline, and more
  • Respect and courtesy in every lesson means better listening and follow through at home
  •  We require that all youth students be making good grades, and good choices in and out of the classroom.

Whether you’re near Tigard, Tualatin, Lake Oswego or Sherwood we’re less than a 15 minute drive and right off all the major highways. Now we realize we’ve blown our own horn here, but it’s important to let you know how we differentiate ourselves from the rest. We don’t expect you to take our word for it, which is why we’re always offering a free trial so your family can explore River City Warrior’s programs and make an informed decision.
