A lot of mothers and people who are uninformed about Jiu-Jitsu still feel the gentle art isn’t for everybody. After all, it would be a lot of pressure, a lot of contact and a lot of brutishness for their beloved and fragile little ones.
Things aren’t quite like that, we guarantee. There’s a myriad of schools with a variety of philosophies, but one of the few similarities common between all Jiu-Jitsu academies the world over is this: all instructors want their students to happily return the next day.
And it is thus, day after day, that Jiu-Jitsu strengthens, entertains, improves self-esteem, provides will power and a new life. You can take our word for it, mothers!
To reinforce this message, GRACIEMAG.com unearthed a video showing how Jiu-Jitsu for kids is based on creative exercises, with classes that combine self-defense with play and gymnastics.
Give your kids a chance to try Jiu-Jitsu. If they don’t like it, they’ll be the first to say it.
