Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes | Kombat Arts Mississauga
Our Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu martial arts program at Kombat Arts Mississauga is one of our newest, yet rapidly growing programs.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seeks to rapidly close the distance with the attacker, clinch, and take the fight to the ground.
Once on the ground, the BJJ practitioner seeks to dominate with superior positioning, holds and submissions.
Here are the benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for your kids:
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Creates Confidence
Confidence is one of the most valuable gifts that you can give to a child. It’s something that will help them through any rough patches in their childhood and set them up for future success.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is Excellent Exercise
If you are looking for a fun way to get your children involved with a physical activity that they will actually enjoy, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an excellent option to consider. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training is a serious workout. It improves cardio, improves flexibility, strengthens muscles, and more.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Sharpens the Mind
In addition to training the body, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu also trains the mind. In fact, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is, in many ways, more of a mental activity than it is a physical one.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu requires strategy, memory, quick decision making, and a wide range of other mental skills, and these mental skills are taught in tandem with the physical moves themselves.
They’ll Likely Make New Friends
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gyms are most often made up of a very tight-knit group of people. If you choose to enroll your children in a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class where there are already other children their age, they should have no problem making new friends in little time at all.
There’s just something about training with someone that develops a very close relationship. Though Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is more of an individual pursuit than other sports like soccer or basketball, teamwork and group participation still play constant, important roles in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Teaches Self Defense
One of the most frightening realities that new parents must come to grips with is the fact that we live in a world that isn’t always safe or kind. There are dangerous people in the world, and, as sad as it is, young children are not immune to these dangers.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an activity that can be enjoyed as a friendly sport and never put to use in a real-life situation. At its core, though, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is teaching you how to defend yourself. We can all hope that a child never has to use the things they learn in a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class outside of the gym, but they’ll still be equipped with the skills to defend themselves if a dangerous situation is thrust upon them.
This is one of our most popular martial arts classes for the following reasons:
- Our Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu martial arts classes are FUN
- They have a great opportunity to socialize and make friends
- With obesity on the rise, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an exciting way to get in shape
- Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a very good anti-bullying / self defence martial art
