will help your child
Improve Their Grades
Children need physical activity to promote the growth of new neurons, which help improve your child’s IQ and performance in school. BJJ also increases blood flow and the chemical levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain, which helps children think and focus in the classroom.
Encourage Safe Self Defense
BJJ because it helps teach them how to grapple their way into a dominant position or escape an uncomfortable position, all in a safe environment. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gives kids the self defense lessons they need to feel confident in themselves during a compromising situation without having to punch or kick another child.
Help Create Friendships
Letting your child join a Brazilian jiu-jitsu gym will help them create life-long friendships. There is a special bond between members as they learn new skills and grow in their BJJ journey. Members spend time rolling or grappling during class, but also spend plenty of time off the mats conversing and sharing their life together through rank promotions, travelling to tournaments, or other team activities. Many children in BJJ say that the best part about joining a gym was the friendships they made along the way.
