Why Is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Perfect For Smaller Kids
Every child should be put into some type of physical activity since a very young age. Jiu Jitsu training for kids would quite possibly be the best sport you could start a child. It promotes confidence, discipline, respect and many other benefits
1. Problem Solving Skills
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great tool to learn problem-solving skills. Every time anyone trains they are always faced with a challenge that must be solved.
Every time the child needs to learn a new position or move they have to think and connect thoughts to their current understanding. In order to use new moves, you need to connect them to things you already know. This type of learning is very important for young children.
BJJ is the best discipline teacher, as a martial art, kids need to learn to behave according to its structure. Respecting the mats and the instructors, learning to be perseverant by coming to every class, and showing respect and attention by being quiet when the instructor is talking. These things change the person who’s learning them. Children who are normally a bit wild can become calm and focused. Which can be also a great tool to avoid bullying, because it prevents the bully from creating.
3. Coordination and Body Awareness
At Hero Academy, we would say that starting training BJJ at 3 years old is perfect! Because Learning to perform these Jiu Jitsu techniques from such a young age develops the child’s fine motor skills, coordination, and balance.
Little children absorb everything they see and listen to. At Hero Academy, we have a positive atmosphere so that they grow as an individual in a positive sense.
We do not only teach them a form of self-defense, we also teach them many life lessons as well that a child can carry with them.
