Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) isn’t just for adults. In fact, it’s the perfect activity for kids! This form of martial arts incorporates a lot of ground grappling and is based on automatic human responses. When it comes to self-defense, BJJ empowers a smaller individual to fight against a larger opponent. But the advantages don’t stop there. BJJ helps kids gain confidence, learn discipline, focus their energy, foster respect for others, and be a part of a one-of-a-kind community full of future friends and mentors!
Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
We get it, being a kid isn’t always easy! Between math homework, trying to make friends, and school bullies, there’s a lot to deal with. At Maracaba BJJ, we want to be a place of escape from all those struggles. While the rest of the world may take a toll on your child’s confidence, we’re here to build it up. After watching hundreds of young martial artists go through our program, we know that practicing BJJ improves students’ confidence like no other activity can. BJJ pushes students out of their comfort zone – helping them acquire new skills, teaching them how to defend themselves and avoid conflict, and providing them with support and guidance. Students enter our Kids BJJ program as shy and insecure children and leave as outgoing and self-assured martial artists.
At Maracaba BJJ, we believe that having fun and practicing discipline go hand in hand. In order to create amazing martial artists, we must teach them the importance of good behavior. So how is the discipline practiced in BJJ anyway? Practicing discipline in our school is all about carefully following your instructor’s directions, staying quiet during class, having a good attitude from the moment you enter our building, and taking accountability for your actions. After all, you can’t perfect a technique if you’re too busy talking to your friend!
A huge part of what makes BJJ so great is that it doesn’t just strengthen the body, it strengthens the mind as well. Many parents worry that Jiu-Jitsu won’t be the right fit for their child, because he or she has a lot of energy. But this couldn’t be further from the truth! At [insert school name], we want our students to be energetic and excited when they come to class – our goal is simply to focus that energy. After a long day sitting at a desk, kids need a place to let loose. Our BJJ curriculum aims to take all that pent-up energy and direct it into throws, blows, and a wide variety of fun activities.
Having a purpose in life isn’t just important for adults – it matters for kids too! Children may beg to sit in front of the TV all day, but this just won’t make them happy. Having a source of motivation is the recipe for success in kids’ lives. An activity like BJJ gets kids active, improves their mood, and helps them feel accomplished. Not to mention, Jiu-Jitsu improves students’ performance in all aspects of their lives. The values they learn in our school will push them to do better in school, practice better behavior at home, treat others with greater respect, and set goals for themselves.
Makes Life Better
At Maracaba BJJ, we’re not worried about winning awards or preparing your child for a black belt. More than anything else, we care about our young students’ personal development and growth. We wouldn’t be teaching children BJJ if we didn’t see the way it changes children’s lives for the better. Jiu-Jitsu provides kids with a safe space where they can learn important life lessons, make healthy friendships, find mentorship in their instructors, and discover their passion for martial arts early in life.
