Why bjj ?
BJJ focusses on using technique and leverage over size and strength. It improves the coordination of the child’s body and it has been proven that it increases the mental focus. BJJ classes are great workouts for children. These classes will consist out of warmups, technique, games and rolling. Furthermore the children will learn together and train together. The instructors will give equal attention to all the students and their progress. Allowing your child to participate and improve each class instead of just watching other students getting better.
There are sports that are based on the season. However BJJ is a sport that can be practiced year round. This allows the activity being practiced continuously. As we believe steady and easy leads to real progress.
As it is an individual sport this removes the pressure for children of letting teammates down, all the while teaching the child can solve the problem on their own. This stimulates the child to build his or her own character and self-confidence.
During the classes the child will interact with other children. The focus will be on team building and socializing in a friendly manner. Inappropriate behavior such as bullying is not tolerated by the instructors. BJJ may be an individual sport however the child will have the opportunity to train with other children to help each other grow.
