For parents seeking a fun, healthy and empowering activity for their kids to do during summer break, Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a fantastic choice.
The benefits of Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are numerous and far reaching:
1) On the most basic level, participating in a structured physical activity during summer break is healthy and productive. Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are a great option if your children are not attending full day summer camp and you are seeking an activity that will be fun, exciting and social, but that also will provide your son or daughter with mental and physical benefits far beyond the summer.
2) Are your kids UFC fans? If so, the idea of Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes will be very exciting to them. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is core to UFC events, where it represents the ground grappling aspect of MMA. By taking Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes this summer, your child will be on the cutting edge of the fastest growing global sport, whether they are doing the classes for fun or if they are potentially interested in ultimately doing the sport competitively, as they see on TV.
3) Is your child vulnerable to bullies? If so, Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are an ideal way to “bully proof” your son or daughter this summer. As the only non striking martial art, your child will learn to effectively neutralize bullying situations before they can escalate to potentially dangerous situations. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is specially designed to enable a smaller, weaker person to defeat a larger, stronger opponent. Your child will not only be physically prepared to handle bullying situations, the practice of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu also greatly improves self confidence, which is an essential component of decreasing the chances of your child becoming a bullying target in the first place. Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes this summer are giving your child the gift of preparedness for the next school year.
4) The effects of Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes go far beyond getting fit while having fun. A natural and pronounced benefit of training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the improved focus, self-control, frustration tolerance, social skills, and an overall sense of well being that comes with it. These results extend into every area of the child’s life.
