Kids who practice martial arts have the opportunity to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a fun and safe environment. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling martial art that emphasizes taking an opponent to the ground. However, BJJ is a lot more than just physical training.
Through BJJ, kids have the opportunity to learn valuable skills that will help them reach their goals in daily life. Here are a few of the life skills kids learn in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:
While kids are instructed only to use what they know about self-defense as a last resort, they do learn skills to defend themselves against an attacker. With BJJ, kids learn to use skill over size or strength.
Training BJJ is empowering for both adults and kids. Knowing that you have the skills to defend yourself can help you walk taller and stand straighter. Believing in yourself and your abilities leads to a boost in self-confidence.
BJJ training is as much of a mental workout as it is a physical one. Kids must pay attention to their instructor while also paying attention to small details. The more kids stay in control, concentrate, and focus, the more they will improve their skills with quality practice.
Developing good coordination makes everyday tasks easier. BJJ training helps kids develop better coordination of their body movements. Building this physical skill through BJJ can also carry over into other sports or daily activities.
It is through a daily or consistent practice of a skill or activity that you develop self-discipline. A martial arts class is an ideal environment for kids to practice the same skills over and over. Eventually, kids will see their hard work pay off once they successfully use the skills they spent hours practicing. The repetition and ultimate sense of accomplishment encourage kids to develop self-discipline.
