KIDS BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
There are many reasons why you might be considering Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for your child. Here are just a few of the benefits as we see it here at Gracie Humaita Redlands:
- Dealing with Bullies
- It is no secret that bullying is a major problem in schools today. And there may come a time when your son or daughter needs to defend themselves. BJJ has a self-defense focus that is ground based without the dangers of punches or kicks. There are many ways to use harmless control holds or locks to maintain control of a bully until help arrives.
- Mental Toughness
- As parents, we want our children to be resilient. We want them to learn from failures in a relatively risk free environment so that they may overcome and develop the skills to persevere. Even black belts of many years fail on the mats, and it is with the skills learned here that they are able to keep pushing forward to be better.
- Finally, BJJ offers a great opportunity for students to meet and build life long friendships. People from all walks of life can find equality on the mats. There are no egos, there are no statuses. Our students enjoy games and competitive rolling to build camaraderie around the Gracie Humaita Redlands Team. We are one team and one family.
