Jiu-Jitsu is not only a great martial art but also an amazing tool to improve your child in different aspects of his/her life. Aside from the physical attributes, there are many mental benefits that can turn your child in a champion in and out of the mats. Here's a few of them:
Discipline is fundamental to help us achieve what we strive for. Without discipline, there's no way one can achieve his goals. In Jiu-Jitsu, discipline is a key component in our classes, we instill this important element every single day! Your child will learn how to have disciplinary behavior and work hard to achieve his/her goals on and off the mats.
Social skills are extremely important to teach your child to not only learn how to communicate, but also learn how to stablish connections. Jiu-Jitsu helps with that by teaching children how to be polite, kind, and caring for their partners. Your child will meet new friends and learn how connect with any other child in any environment.
Part of improving on the mats is to also learn how to control your own body. Jiu-Jitsu teaches children how to move and coordinate their bodies by training specific positions and doing certain drills. All of that is done in a fun and exciting way!
Children learn about the importance behind living healthy. Eating healthy, exercising regularly, and training Jiu-Jitsu on a daily basis, are the 3 key components that builds the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle.
Learning how to cope with a loss it's an important factor for life. In Jiu-Jitsu, children are constantly put into uncomfortable spots, and this helps them learn how to deal with tough situations and fight through.
Confidence is one of the other aspects that are developed throughout your child's BJJ Journey. The fact that your child can easily learn how to take down someone and put them on a lock without having to hurt them (all of that with them holding back their strength) is an extreme boost to their confidence. Of course, that confidence does turn into arrogance, it stays a strong feeling of strength and acknowledgement of combat.
Last but not least, self-defense skills. Jiu-Jitsu prepares your child to defend themselves mentally and physically, giving your child the necessary emotional strength to face off their bullies and other aggressors.
