Having your child start sports at a young age is always a great idea. They learn so many positive life lessons and gain friends, but if you’re looking for the absolute BEST sport/ martial art to enroll your kids in, Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu is hands down at the top of the list. There are so many benefits of this martial art that are great for both kids and adults:

1.) Self- Confidence- BJJ gives kids the confidence they need to not only face bullies, but to grow into strong leaders who aren’t afraid or intimidated by new challenges.
2.) Discipline and Respect- Any child who takes martial arts can learn discipline and respect, but BJJ can teach them discipline of the mind and the body and to respect and learn from everybody around them, young or old!
3.) Coordination- Everyone feels awkward at first when they start BJJ, the movements feel unnatural and forced. But over time they begin to get a better sense or balance and improved hand- eye- coordination as they get better and learn new positions. All of the things they learn will help greatly with their fine motor skills and memory as well.
4.) Goal Setting- There are so many different ways that kids can set goals in BJJ. Earning their next stripe or belt, tapping that one tough opponent, hitting the move of the week during live rolling, or going to competition and winning a gold medal. The great thing about BJJ is that your goals don’t have to be the same as anyone else’s because everyone learns, develops, and improves as their own pace.
5.) Self Defense- Other martial arts like Karate teach coordinated moves that are meant to look good. But BJJ teaches kids what to do if a bigger, stronger bully/ opponent engages and takes the fight to the ground.
6.) Great for Boys AND Girls- Most people think that martial arts will only appeal to boys because it is tough and gives off that masculine connotation. But BJJ is a sport where girls can dominate in a fight just as well (or better) than boys can. We have a good amount of girls at Supremacy BJJ that are known for being some of the toughest and most technical people in class.
7.) You Can do it With Them!- We have plenty of families at Supremacy BJJ who train in our kids and adult classes. They learn from and help each other become better and develop stronger bonds with each other which is always AWESOME!
These are just a few of the many reasons why Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu is the BEST martial art out there! Come try out a class today for you or your kids and learn even more about the benefits BJJ has to offer!
