Kids Striking & Grappling

The Paragon Kids Program builds the confidence and self-esteem our students will need to overcome challenges and obstacles they face in life. Our combination of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, and striking blends the most dominant martial arts skills into one program. Students make lifelong friendships, build discipline, burn off energy,

and gain invaluable skills, all while having fun.

Where will your child's martial arts journey take them?

Separated by age and level, these classes will teach your child Jiu-Jitsu in a fast-paced environment. For the little guys, we keep the class fun while introducing them to the fundamentals. As students gain experience, we move to live training and focus on the finer details of technique.

Paragon Goleta's striking kids have fun with their instructor


Kids of all ages love striking!

For younger kids, we keep it simple, allowing them to learn the techniques while mixing in fun games. As students get older and more technical, we challenge them with combinations and exercises that constantly sharpen their skillset.

No-Gi Grappling

Our no-gi students learn wrestling, takedowns, and how to maneuver their bodies to control opponents.

In our Bully Prevention class, they'll learn how to protect themselves in bully situations; defending against strikes and getting themselves to a safe place using Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, and Judo.

Meet Our Instructor
Arturo Ríos

He may look intimidating at first,

but there’s no one who loves helping out his students more than coach Arturo. A BJJ purple belt who competed in both boxing and MMA, Arturo is constantly furthering his own knowledge of the fight game

as a coach and passing it on to

his students.


Arturo has a knack for blending solid striking fundamentals with flashy techniques and creative combinations; his classes are always intense and engaging.
