Learning Self Defense and Confidence.

The Benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Training for Children

Kids who train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu learn:

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instills confidence in children. Through training, children master self-defense techniques, learn to control an attacker, and neutralize them in a realistic situation. They will learn:

Build Great Friendships

Training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu means developing relationships with classmates.

Children learn to socialize in a disciplined environment where they can feel safe from bullying. 

Improve Coordination and Body Awareness

Children learn coordination and body awareness through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training.

This leads to the confidence to explore other activities such as sports. Kids who train often feel confident enough to explore cartwheels, break-falls, push-ups, and tumbling. 

Build Healthy Habits

Children are susceptible to stress just like anyone else.

They deal with the pressure to fit in, succeed in school, and make friends. Learning and training in martial arts provides exercise which is scientifically proven to reduce stress. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu also provides a healthy outlet for difficult emotions. 

Learn Humility & Compassion


Children who train in martial arts learn to be humble in victory and defeat. They learn to congratulate opponents and be patient with themselves during the learning process. Students humble themselves as they take direction from instructors, learning essential listening skills and confidence. 

Learn to Give and Recieve Respect

Our children's Jiu-Jitsu training will expose students to kids from all walks of life. Children who only have social interactions with those of similar backgrounds can develop biases that lead to disrespect and confrontation. By learning in a diverse environment, children learn respect for themselves and others. 
Learn Commitment
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has a low risk for injury, allowing for daily practice. One of the founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Hello Gracie, practiced into his 90's. Students are encouraged to practice regularly to master techniques. By showing up to class regularly and practicing technique, children show commitment. This commitment develops as a character asset that becomes part of how children approach the tasks they undertake in life.

Learn Goal Setting

Children begin training as a white belt and set goals to progress through stages of mastery. As they progress, they earn successive colors of belts to celebrate their achievement and mark their status. Learning to set goals becomes a part of children’s core character development that will stay with them for life.

How to Maintain Focus

It is critical to pay attention to your surroundings during training. Children learn to focus intensely while learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This focus level becomes part of how your child thinks and behaves and can extend to chores, friendships, and schoolwork.

Learn Acceptance

Setbacks and dealing with failure are a natural part of learning any martial art. Sometimes children will struggle to master a new technique or will lose a match. They will learn to accept defeat humbly, understand that they are learning, brush themselves off, and try again.
