Are you wondering what to do
You can’t be there all the time, and your kids need supervision and stimulation.
You want to set your kids up for success in the new school year and beyond.
You don’t want your kids to waste their time off playing video games.
Finding enjoyable activities during their summer is challenging
They want to have fun and not worry about school, and you want them not to waste their time playing video games. You want your kids to be active, and you also want to make sure they’re in a safe and well-supervised place so you can work and do whatever else you need to do. It can feel impossible to find a program that meets your criteria and will keep your kids happy – and that’s where we come in.
Our summer camp is tailor-made to be fun, educational, and social. Parents love it – and kids do, too.
your child will LOVE their summer!
Martial arts summer camp can provide the solution to keep everyone happy. Kids get to attend a fun summer camp that keeps them active and gives them plenty of activities to do while making new friends and connecting with old ones. You get the reassurance of knowing that your kids are learning respect, discipline, and self-control, all of which will help them when they go back to school in the fall.
Rest easy while you’re at work
Arranging for child care during the summer break is a challenge. Instead of hiring a full-time babysitter or putting your kids in daycare, try our camp instead.
Here, experienced martial arts instructors teach kids what they need to know to excel in our martial art school and in the classroom. Your kids will be well looked after.
Keep your kids from wasting time playing video games
The last thing you want is for your kids to be couch potatoes all summer long. With our program, they won’t be!
They’ll be active and engaged in fun and educational activities every day, and they’ll have plenty to tell you at the end of the day. Our program is beneficial for them and you.
Education doesn’t end when school lets out
Summer is the perfect time for kids to prepare themselves for the coming school year. You want them to enjoy their time off, but not to forget what it means to be a good student.
Martial arts summer camp teaches kids the core values they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond. They learn to respect themselves and others, and to acquire the self-discipline to achieve their goals.
Summer camp means making new friends
You probably have fond memories of attending summer camp when you were a kid, and you want your children to have them, too.
Martial arts camp is the perfect environment for kids to make new friends. They share common experiences in the dojo and they learn the value of respecting people with different backgrounds and experience levels.
Our 6 & 7 year are both enrolled in Gracie Tampa South’s Big and Little Ninja programs. Not only are they learning jiu jitsu – a skill they will carry with them through adulthood – the coaches help the kids grow their core character as well. Every month they learn about a different positive trait – honesty, friendship, initiative, just to name a few. Our children learn about how to be “bullyproof”, and how not to be a bully. They learn the importance of individual development, but also the importance of working as a team – Brazilian jiu jitsu may be an individual sport, but you can’t learn or improve if you don’t work with your teammates. I can’t say enough positive things about the kids program and how much it means to our boys. Oh, and did I mention both myself and my husband train here as well? From beginners classes to high-skill level classes, GTS has you covered for fitness, for jiu jitsu, for striking/Muay Thai...you name it, they have top level coaches and amazing classes.
Amazing gym and phenomenal instructors! I love everything about this place! Location, huge facility, clean and everyone here is like family.
It's also military friendly, so if you're active duty and new to the area, I highly recommend you try out Gracie Tampa South before going anywhere else. You will not regret it.
Ps. I recommend GTS to everyone, not just military. ;)
I can't tell you how impressed I've been with GTS. We live 20 min away and still make the drive 2-3 times a week because it has been so beneficial to our 9 yr old son. Not only does it meet every boy's need to have some physical outlet for all that energy, but we have noticed a huge difference in his maturity, respect, self-control, and confidence with his peers. The coaches are professional, kind, and amazing at understanding each individual child's unique needs and meeting them where they are at while encouraging them. Bonus that my son's grappling skills have rapidly improved in the few months we've been attending. This place is a diamond in the rough when it comes to martial arts programs for kids- it will NOT disappoint!

Yes. We work hard to make sure that martial arts summer camp is both fun and educational. Kids learn core martial arts skills and values, but we also provide them with tons of activities and opportunities to socialize.
Learning martial arts is as intellectual as it is physical. Martial arts instruction emphasizes the mind-body connection and teaches kids to focus, memorize, and use discipline to achieve their goals – all skills that require them to use their brains.
Many children do. Kids of all ages attend our camps, and many of them start friendships that will last the rest of their lives. While martial arts is an individual sport, we emphasize the importance of respecting others and supporting them – and that provides kids with the right environment to make new friends.
