WHY LEARN JIU JITSU?
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. There could be no more valuable lesson than that
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
Strengthen The Mind As Well As The Body - Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a highly technical martial art that requires students to use their mind as much as 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!
