5 Reasons Kids Should Train Jiu Jitsu

5 Reasons Kids Should Train Jiu Jitsu

1 Builds confidence and self-esteem
Confidence is one of the most important traits for any person to have. Martial Arts have been famous for developing this in people at very early stages in life. As kids become more confident in their techniques and their performance in their Jiu-Jitsu class, the same will happen with their school studies and their relationships with other people.

2 Teaches focus and discipline
Children will also learn how to listen to an authority figure and follow instructions – more important skills for future development. Children learn various small lessons, like not speaking when being spoken to by an instructor, or even keeping their gi and belt neatly tied. They will even learn about the importance of hygiene because gis must be clean and nails must be cut. The work ethic they learn in Jiu-Jitsu can translate into their schoolwork and future ventures as they grow up. They will learn that hard work and diligence produces results and rewards.

3 Self Defense14721755_1264751720242578_3792306994804314209_n
In Jiu-Jitsu Classes they will learn REAL self defense. They will not learn flashy choreographed dances or unrealistic moves… they will learn how to REALLY PROTECT themselves from bullies. It’s a fact that bullying is on the rise and the child that is least able to defend themselves or with the lowest self-esteem is usually the victim. Do not let this happen to your child.
4 Fitness
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. Jiu-Jitsu is the perfect outlet to get your child excited and looking forward to doing a fun fitness related activity.

5 Make New Friends
Jiu-Jitsu Classes is a place where your child will make lifetime friends and learn to respect everyone in a group with mixed cultures. 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.
