Kids Jiu-Jitsu: Helping Your Child Develop Self-Defense Skills
If your child is showing an interest in martial arts, kids jiu-jitsu is a great way for them to get started with learning more about the basics of self-defense and hand-to-hand combat. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is the ancient art of grappling and ground fighting. The goal of Brazilian jiu-jitsu is to use force to control one's opponent until they submit. When you think of martial arts, you likely think about breaking planks of wood and throwing strong kicks and punches, but Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a little bit different.
There are many principles of jiu-jitsu that lend themselves to a child's self-defense. A hallmark of the sport is a smaller person being able to overcome a larger foe. For kids who are smaller than their peers, learning kids jiu-jitsu can give them a sense of strength and confidence that they are on the same playing field as their larger peers.
As a parent, it may feel scary to enroll your child in kids jiu-jitsu, but we take every precaution to ensure that our classes are completely safe. The risks are similar to any other sport, and we focus on grappling on the ground, rather than throwing kicks and punches. When your child understands that they can defend themself through controlled strength, their outlook on their ability to keep themself safe will begin to shift. You'll likely see a spike in your child's confidence that can affect every area of their lives, from academics to friendships.
