What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and self defense system that focuses on primarily on ground fighting. The art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu evolved from Kodokan Judo (which itself is derived from various forms of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu) in the early 20th century.

Through the use of leverage, body position, and proper technique, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu allows a smaller, weaker person, such as a child, to successfully defend against and defeat a larger, stronger assailant by the application of joint-locks, choke holds, and positional dominance.

Why is BJJ good for my child?

1

Physical Fitness


While learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu your child will develop better body awareness, balance, and coordination. This will carry over into other sports and life skills.
2

Focus/Discipline


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a complex martial art, requiring your child to focus while learning. This in turn leads to disciplined thinking and the ability to settle down and pay attention quickly.
3

Self Defense Skills


Children learn to use their own bodies to gain dominant control over others without relying of size, power, and strength. BJJ also teaches you to remain calm while freeing yourself from the control of another.
4

Confidence


Because there is no striking in BJJ, children can spar and test their skills against unwilling opponents every class. Thus increasing confidence in themselves and in the skills learned through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
5

Social Skills


Students are required to work with one another every class, teaching your child to communicate and cooperate with others. Children quickly form lastly friendships with each other because of the bond formed through trust and cooperation that comes with learning BJJ.
