Why All Parents Should Put Their Son Or Daughter In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
All sports have benefits for kids generally including fitness, socialization, and mental
Jiu Jitsu offers these benefits plus many unique to training in this martial art.
Jiu Jitsu helps kids develop real confidence by overcoming challenges daily on the mat proving to themselves that they’re much more capable than they believed possible.
The kids develop strong self defense skills that are based on controlling a bigger, stronger, more aggressive opponent and putting them in a position where they are no longer a threat.
They also don’t have to punch or kick someone to defend themselves which is important in today’s school environment which would punish them for doing so. Plus they don’t get hurt and don’t have to hurt the other child.
This again really boosts their confidence. They eliminate fear of bullies or being in a fight.
In Jiu Jitsu classes kids develop focus, discipline, respect for others, and how to persevere in the face of adversity instead of giving up.
These benefits don’t just help them become a better fighter, they help them achieve more in school, at home, at work (in the future), and in relationships.
