5 Reasons all kid’s should learn Jiu-Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers many benefits to children but we wanted to share our top 5 reasons all kid’s should learn Jiu-Jitsu!
- Self Confidence – now many martial arts claim that your child will benefit from self confidence but they never really explain how or why. You Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is very different from your traditional Martial Arts because you actually use what you learn everyday against someone trying to stop you. You will not see a child screaming and breaking boards but rather engaging in a real life combat situation trying to wrestle their way into a dominate position or escape an uncomfortable or compromising position…. You see, when a child breaks a board or does a flashy move with no real resistance it gives them a false sense of confidence that does not really carry over into the real world and can actually be dangerous when the child realizes that the “karate” they learned can not really help them in a real situation. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gives a child REAL confidence and a realistic way to defend themselves without ever having to punch or kick another child.
- Fitness – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will provide a fun and demanding cardiovascular workout for your child and they will LOVE doing it. The hardest part about keeping kid’s fit these days is getting them off of the computer or away from the video games. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the perfect outlet to get your child excited and looking forward to doing a fun fitness related activity.
- Make New Friends – The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy is a place where your child will make lifetime friends and learn to respect everyone in a group with mixed cultures. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is something that most people start and continue doing for the rest of their life. You will see your child grow and learn with friends that they met in Jiu-Jitsu class and kept for a lifetime.
- Provide your child with tangible goals – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will offer your child many fun and exciting incentives and give them the ability to earn rank, points and special awards.
