Introducing a child to the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an excellent way to ensure they will grow up with a strong foundation of patience, confidence and discipline. While some parents are hesitant to get their child involved in any contact sports, the art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is far gentler than you might think. Your child is more likely to be injured in a playground unsupervised than they would under the care and direction of a good instructor.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will arm your child with positive mental and physical skills that will help him/her in school, at home and in life! As your child will learn to succeed, you’ll see a new kind of discipline emerging, the kind that will positively affect all areas of his or her life. You’ll notice an increased respect for others, and most importantly, for him / herself. This kind of powerful mind/body connection will make them unstoppable when faced with difficulties in life. Your child’s energy, confidence, and spirit rise while he or she becomes strong and confident. We’re not just talking about physical strength, but the kind of strength it takes to resist peer pressure and other negative aspects of life.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a non-striking self-defense martial art system based on leverage and control over the opponent. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is considered to be one of the best self defenses for kids and adults since it’s applied in response to physical aggression, so there’s no need to worry about your child becoming violent.
