Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Every child should be put into some type of developmental activity when they are young such as dance, gymnastics or a martial art. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the best and most efficient martial arts for adult as well as for children. It promotes confidence, discipline, respect, and many other developmental qualities.
It is important to place children in a positive atmosphere so that they grow as an individual as well as a member of society. BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) allows them to do so. Not only does it teach them a form of self-defense, it also teaches many life lessons in participating in a social activity, helping others and facing adversity. In an age where bullying is a big problem in schools, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will teach your child effective ways to defend himself/herself while building their confidence.
Another huge benefit for kids in relation to BJJ is the physical conditioning benefits that come along with it. Children spend a great deal of time playing video games and watching TV. BJJ will teach your child how to live a healthy lifestyle which is so important to learn at a young age and won’t develop bad habits that are hard to break once they’re established. They will burn calories, increase flexibility, improve balance and coordination build muscle and gain strength. Jiu-Jitsu teaches self-defence but also teaches you how to take care of your body.
Jiu Jitsu will also give your child mental clarity and improve on their mental mind-state. The physical part plays a big role, but the mental aspect is just as important. Your child will develop a sense of discipline which results from the “never give up” attitude that Jiu Jitsu instills in people when realizing that hard work pays off.
Finally, FRIENDS! Jiu-Jitsu is amazing for kids (and adults) because they will develop bonds with their training partners. Eventually your training partners turn to family, and I can’t think of anything more positive than that.
