Why enroll your kids in Jiu Jitsu?

Here are the benefits that Jiu Jitsu provides for kids:

Perseverance Through Adversity

Through the practice of Jiu Jitsu and the games we play in class your kids will test themselves against their friends and peers. They won’t always win and that’s ok, as a team both students and coaches alike support each other through these challenges in order to help improve on mistakes. Your child will be encouraged to try, try and try again until they succeed. This is wonderful lesson they can use for other challenges in life.

Strengthen The Mind and The Body

Jiu Jitsu is a highly technical martial art that requires students to use their mind combined with their body to solve physical problems. It can be thought of as a game of live action human chess. In practice students will need to use the skills, movements and techniques that they’ve learned in order to control and secure victory over their partners. To achieve this takes immense timing, recall, mental focus, creativity, problem solving and decision making all while preventing your partner from doing the same to you!

Improve Fitness

Nothing in life comes free, kids will develop their Jiu Jitsu through repetition and practice. Health and fitness are a natural byproduct of hard work​​.

Increase Confidence & Self Esteem

Knowing effective martial arts techniques is empowering, you’ll be amazed with the self confidence your child will quickly develop.

Effective Self Defense

Basic self defense is something every child should know. At Advantage Jiu Jitsu’s kids program your child will learn effective Jiu Jitsu techniques that will help keep them safe
