Kids Jiu Jitsu classes can provide many awesome benefits to the child taking the classes but there are other people it could benefit as well.
Kids Jiu Jitsu classes can also provide benefits to the family of the child involved. It’s up to you to decide if it is worth it but we know it is! To begin with, Kids gain all sorts of benefits from Jiu Jitsu classes. At its core, it is a well developed martial art that can help positively influence a child long into adulthood. Children are perfect for this particular martial art because it was developed with the small person in mind. That makes our little buddies perfect for this. We don’t advise that little kids go out and start kicking butt all up and down the street but it provides for an excellent self-defense background. In fact any gym that offers any type of martial arts should be against violence. We provide training that can be used as a last resort. Today in schools it can be a horrible experience to have to defend yourself against another student because of the current rules that are in place. It is much better to avoid conflict that to be involved in it for children. This is exactly why kids Jiu Jitsu classes have become such an important program for many kids in the Alhambra area.
Here are benefits you will see from your children in Kids Jiu Jitsu classes:
Self-Discipline – This is a benefit that is developed during class and becomes necessary throughout a child’s training. Discipline will teach children when to hold back and when to go forward with something. In class, injuries are always a possibility and without discipline children can increase that risk. A well disciplined child knows when its time to have fun and when it is time to be serious as well!
Social Skills – One of the more underrated skills a child can develop. Social skills have become neglected and hard to learn for children today. There are many issues that stem from technology that prevent children from developing proper social skills for life. Many of them being social media and being left to play video games all day. With Kids Jiu Jitsu, your child will be able to socialize with other students and it becomes easier because they can relate to the class they are both in. Eventually new students arrive and their social skills are developed further.
Goal Setting – Kids Jiu Jitsu is all about goals and working hard to reach them. Many children have goals of reaching their kid’s black belt but that takes time. That would be an example of a long term goal. Kids Jiu Jitsu teach children to set long term and short term goals. Short term goals can be learning a particular technique in a set amount of time or working with a partner to accomplish something in class. This benefit can help children with school work and eventually into their workplace.
Self-Defense – Your child will have the skills and characteristics that will allow them to defend themselves. Characteristics like confidence and a strong self-esteem help prevent bullying. It is one thing to have the skills to defend yourself and another to know when to use them. Many children can be taught by their parents how to fight someone but Kids Jiu Jitsu teaches how to defend themselves.
Overall Life Improvement – This is somewhat vague but if you add up everything you can see that everything can help somewhere in a child’s life whether its school or later on in work. These are all positive improvements and can add more fulfillment to anyone’s life.
Families can also benefit from Kids Jiu Jitsu classes
Some families have a family member involved in Kids Jiu Jitsu classes but aren’t doing anything themselves. Witness one of these classes might inspire them to begin classes themselves! One of the more popular things taking place in classes are kids taking classes with their parents. Some of the kids have become teens and old enough to be able to join the adults class. Dads have joined in programs to train with their children and reap the health benefits of class too!
