Kids Jiu Jitsu
Take a moment to read just a few of the reasons why we think Jiu Jitsu is right for your child.
Keep in mind that learning discipline and respect helps kids outside of jiujitsu. They develop respect for their teachers within the education system. For this reason, kids who participate in jiujitsu typically improve in school performance.
Jiujitsu can also help kids learn to be more respectful to their parents and other authority figures. Because of that, it’s a great option for kids who come from all walks of life.
Children who participate in jiujitsu also build self-confidence in their ability to defend themselves. Jiujitsu isn’t about learning flashy movements or unrealistic techniques. It’s about learning real techniques that kids can use to defend themselves if the need should ever arise. This kind of confidence helps them stand up for themselves.
With jiujitsu, children learn to use their attackers’ momentum against them to solve realistic scenarios. They also learn how to quickly escape when they’re being pinned on the ground by much bigger and stronger attackers.
In short, the ideology behind jiujitsu for children is to defend one’s self without inflicting damage by kicking and punching. Learning to solve problems with violence isn’t the answer. First and foremost, kids should learn to solve problems by using their words and self-control.
Jiujitsu teaches them the importance of socializing and making friends. In most cases, kids practice jiujitsu techniques with partners. This forms a level of interaction that most kids don’t get on a regular basis.
This socialization can help them make friends outside of jiujitsu as well. In addition, the friends that they make in jiujitsu class learn the same positive traits. These are the types of children you want your child to make friends with.
With jiujitsu, they have to get active. In most cases, it’s something that children truly enjoy and look forward to. Jiujitsu helps them build not only core strength but also coordination.
Is your child involved in other sports? If so, jiujitsu is the perfect complement. The coordination and partnership that they learn can help them in nearly any sport. Jiujitsu can fill downtime to keep kids active when their sports aren’t in season as well.
Jiujitsu allows kids to test themselves while measuring their improvement. They can learn new techniques and still practicing old ones. Furthermore, they learn what it takes to overcome challenges and enhance their skills.
ENJOYMENT FROM A
As a parent, it’s nice to see your child get involved with a positive hobby. While there’s nothing wrong with gaming, it’s still a hobby that’s best enjoyed in moderation. There are no physical or social benefits to gain from gaming as a hobby. However, these benefits are present in jiujitsu for children.
