WAMMA Brandon’s various youth components combine to function as a long term Athlete Development Program. The intent is to begin building mentality, character, and grit from an early age starting in Bully Safe, while developing body literacy and muscle memory, and establishing safe training practices. Technical challenges are increased at appropriate ages to include wrestling and jiu jitsu tactics, ultimately producing well– rounded, skilled grapplers.

Bully Safe Kids is a dynamic jiu jitsu based self defense program that aims to build confident and healthy kids!
We teach conflict resolution through tactical communication and work tirelessly to instill the mindset that violence is an absolute last resort, that when necessary, must not be used to excess.
We do not teach the Bully Safe kids striking or chokeholds; instead focusing our learning on defending these types of attacks.
Bully Safe kids learn and practice boundary communication, de-escalation, functional movement, defensive blocks, escape tactics, take downs,control positions..and a few submissions!
Respect the tap!
Bully Safe runs in 3 month sessions:
Fall (Oct-Dec) & Winter (Jan-Mar).
Classes are two days per week and students are encouraged to get as much training time in as possible!
To register for the next session submit a post dated cheque written to BAMMA, and a complete registration form.

WAMMA Brandon’s Youth Wrestling program is a serious grind.
American wrestling focuses on the use of body mechanics, weight distribution and strength to pin the opponent to the mat.

At WAMMA we believe that focused wrestling training provides great foundational learning for jiu jitsu practice.
