Improve Your Child’s Biomechanics

Jiu-Jitsu technique involves understanding body awareness. When taught to apply proper Jiu-Jitsu technique, you will notice a significant increase in your child’s overall mechanics and a much more stable and athletic frame.

Better Cardio And Confidence

Jiu-Jitsu drills and specific technique training allows for not only a complete form of cardio to burn fat, but also teaches children how to train grappling and learn how to defend themselves under a safe and professional environment. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is superior to other martial arts in this regard because the tactics and techniques revolve around overcoming opponents without necessarily causing them harm. What’s more, thanks to the advanced techniques, it’s not uncommon for a relatively small person to defeat a much larger and stronger opponent.

Positive Team Atmosphere

We take great pride in providing a positive and safe environment to grow and learn alongside each other. Building a strong sense of collaboration to improve everyone’s confidence and help one another is something we try to emphasize for children in our program.

Improve Integrative Strength And Coordination

In BJJ, one of the primary things you learn is how to use your entire body to exert force. When technique is taught properly, your child will learn to build functional integrative strength for a more stable, fit, and complete physique.

Weight Loss And Muscle Tone

Martial Arts (and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, in particular) are a fantastic way to become more active and trim some weight. The reason for this is simple:

To lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit. In doing so, you force the body to start using fat for fuel and get the remaining calories it needs to keep functioning.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is fantastic because it’s challenging and helps us burn lots of calories. It’s not uncommon for practitioners to burn upward of 500 calories in a single session. That alone adds up and can lead to significant weight loss without you even modifying your nutrition.

Improved Mental Health

Practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a fantastic way to improve our mental health and keep it elevated. Because the sport involves continual growth and improvement, there is an inherent feeling of progression and fulfillment.

Thanks to the social factor, we also spend time with positive and like-minded individuals who profoundly affect our outlook and world view.
