7 Reasons Jiu-Jitsu is Great for Kids

Jiu-jitsu provides numerous benefits to kids, and enrolling your child in jiu-jitsu may possibly be one of the best choices you ever make for them. If you’re deciding whether or not jiu-jitsu is right for your child, here are seven reasons why we think jiu-jitsu is great for all kids.

Jiu-jitsu keeps kids healthy.

Childhood obesity is a problem that our society faces, attributed to unhealthy food and inactive lifestyles. With television and technology available and addicting, kids can easily become accustom to them.  It’s best to break these habits early and get children to learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle. These lessons will help them the rest of their lives. Jiu-jitsu provides kids with a safe way to exercise while learning a skill that can help them throughout life.

Jiu-jitsu builds confidence.

Its hard to determine where confidence comes from, but we do know how it can be obtained. Kids with more confidence will do better in school, and in life. Jiu-jitsu naturally builds a child’s confidence. As strange as it sounds, theres just something constructive about submitting an opponent that is euphoric and confidence-boosting.

Jiu-jitsu teaches kids humility.

Martial arts are known to build confidence, but jiu-jitsu also develops humility. Jiu-jitsu students are often humbled by the abilities of their peers. Submitting others can build confidence, as mentioned before, but this comes after countless times of being on the receiving end. These experiences build humility and appreciation.

Jiu-jitsu develops discipline in kids.

Jiu-Jitsu teaches all of its students to never give up and to keep pushing forward. The ability to focus and stay on track is something everyone needs to develop when studying jiu-jitsu. This skill can be learned from jiu-jitsu, but applied in all aspects of of life.

Jiu-jitsu teaches kids to defend themselves.  

In a perfect world, no one would ever need to learn how to defend themselves. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world, and situations can arise where people get too aggressive. Knowing how to defend yourself from an aggressor is an important life skill that provides value throughout your child’s life. Jiu-jitsu is a proven self defense system that can effectively show kids how to defend themselves in a time of need.

Jiu-jitsu helps kids make friends and be social.

Making friends is an important part about being a kid. Learning to interact with others and working together are critical to early childhood development. Jiu-jitsu is not an individual sport, and you can’t practice it alone. The members of your school are your teammates, not your opponents – who become your lifelong friends.

Jiu-jitsu is a lot of fun.

Probably the most important reason that kids should learn jiu-jitsu is that it is fun. In jiu-jitsu, kids not only have an outlet for their energy, but also have fun while practicing it.

Not all kids enrolled in jiu-jitsu will stay. The chances of someone starting at 5 years old for making it all the way to black belt is incredibly rare (unless your last name is Gracie). Regardless how long you stay in jiu-jitsu as a kid or as an adult, you will surely take away a positive experience that you will remember the rest of your life.

Why Grappling for Children?

Uses Techniques instead of strength

Grappling is the ideal method of  training for children since it emphasises leverage and technique over strength and power. This focus makes it possible for all children to excel, regardless of their size or athletic ability.

 

Grappling vs Other Martial Arts for Children Ideal for diffusing school fights. Grappling enables practitioners to subdue their opponents without the use of punching and kicking, eliminating the need to use excessive force in a real-life situations.

The Benefits of Grappling for your Children?

Builds Self Confidence & Self Esteem, For many children, self confidence doesn’t come naturally. Confidence is developed over a period of time and as a child accomplishes new goals, his or her confidence level increases.

Children gain self esteem and exhibit confidence with their new-found grappling techniques, but a good instructor will constantly stress, in class, the value of knowing when to use their skills—for self defence or in competition only!

Kids with a high sense of self-esteem have the confidence to stand up for themselves, be more out spoken and more inclined to help others. The confidence gained allows their individual personalities to shine.

Learn Grappling Skills for Better grades

Being a Grappling student also means being a better student in school. Kids who participate in Grappling are proven to have better attention spans. They also learn respect, discipline and responsibility.

They learn gratitude, loyalty, the importance of staying in school and keeping their bodies healthy. Every child learns to follow directions, pay attention, participate in class activities and work as a team. These skills help them to become better students.

Learning Coordination Early in Life

Kids learn motor movement at a very early age. Grappling challenges the entire body, developing coordination, balance, agility and poise.
Learn discipline and perseverance

In Grappling, kids would be ranked according to the level of proficiency. The rnaking system allows your child to set long-term goals and short-term goals, such as being able to execute a new technique they learned in class, or achieving their next stripe or belt.

Best Training for Children of all Ages

Grappling teaches children to think instead of panic in potentially serious situations as well as how to react to threats from other kids. Your child will also be taught not to be a bully.For life- threatening situations only, your child will learn practical self defence. They learn how to think fast on their feet, to improvise and avoid trouble whenever possible.
