why You should Enroll Your Children in jiu-jitsu

One big thing that kids today are lacking is self confidence and we strongly believe that physical training and building skills necessary to protect oneself (outside of sports) can have a huge impact on a kid’s confidence. Martial Arts play a big role in developing youth all around the world and the reason is simple. You cannot succeed in martial arts without experiencing loss, working with other coaches and students to learn how to win; but most importantly, learn to adhere to a set of principles designed to teach children the process of learning. Without respect, discipline, courage and teamwork learning to be skillful at anything will be difficult.

In any endeavor, it’s important to have a coach or Sensei to guide you, a team to support you and help to develop your practice as well as theirs, but most importantly bringing their best effort and focus to each training or class. Although our classes teach Jiu-Jitsu, our coaches focus on developing our students’ sense of responsibility to their community and finding their purpose to serve. 

Because our #1 mission is to support the growth and development of the next generation of kids, we encourage them to attend our leadership training which happens at the end of each class. The reason being that we know kids want to help others and teaching them how to move other kids bodies around safely and gently, we know in an emergency situation, they will feel confident to do the right thing with the proper training (See our Winter Ready Kids Camp blog). We also place a big emphasis on countering bullying skills like situational awareness, de-escalation and how to survive and escape bad situations. School teachers and administrators are not equipped with skills to handle bullying, so we do our best to support our kids by teaching them how we have been trained to handle bullies.

It’s important to remember that when an emergency occurs, both kids and adults will fall to the level of their training. If there is no training, the mind’s only options are freeze or flee. If you’re interested in learning more, know that we always welcome new students with a FREE private lesson and a free trial to get started.
