All sorts of sports teach your child discipline, but very few sports are like Jiu Jitsu. If you have never thought about Jiu Jitsu for your kids right now might be the time. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art form that focuses on ground combat.
It’s based on the idea that an advantage of a person who may weigh less, may be smaller or even may be skinny, they can defend themselves by using leverage with different holds. Here are the core benefits that will help your kids if they join Brazilian Jiu Jitsu:
Just like most sports, jiu jitsu is another form of exercise but it also involves more cardio and training than most. This art form teaches your child to warm up with exercises that involve cardio in practice moves for strengthening their body. This sport also involves one-on-one sparring for children and either their teachers or with other fellow students.
The shifting of weight with certain chokeholds & grapples, can work to a person who may seem like they have a lesser advantage. It also teaches kids how to avoid harm and to protect kids from potential danger. This will not only build their self-esteem but their hope in the ability to manage a harmful situation in their surrounding environments.
As mentioned above Jiu Jitsu can help your child gain their confidence and self-esteem. As your child trains, spars more and gets involved, they will be able to progress in life with self-doubt and self-esteem issues. Through each level, the student will gain more belts and this is a great reward system to help them gain their confidence.
This sport is unique in particular in that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu takes place year around and not just in a particular season. Also, the training here at Damri MMA is inside of the facility where you won’t have to worry about the unpredictable hot weather. This is also a family sport where adults are also welcomed to train with their children as well.
This sport of martial arts teaches life lessons, brings structure to kids, and many more benefits. Each move in this sport takes great discipline in order to fully follow through with a move or hold. This in itself, requires great focus, perseverance and more benefits in a child’s life. This type of discipline will also follow through with each child’s home life and with that hard work it can create more motivation for a child to work more when they get older.
