Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Children
In the Gracie Family, children are taught Jiu-Jitsu from a very early age. At Kroyler Gracie Jiu- Jitsu we have continued this tradition and we’re proud to offer a program that is catered to young students. From the very beginning, your child will learn age-appropriate verbal and physical techniques to help them avoid, survive, and win a physical altercation against a bigger, stronger opponent.
However, the benefits of Jiu-Jitsu go far beyond learning a martial art for self-defense. Learning Jiu-jitsu is about overcoming challenges. The training can sometimes be difficult. This is a great lesson for children as each time they solve a problem or overcome adversity their self-confidence will grow. Self-confidence is one of the most important benefits for children as it makes them less-likely to become a victim of bullying or abuse.
Training will develop a healthy body. Children have become more sedentary and dependent on devices. Regular Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practice will help them improve the health of their body as our curriculum focuses on improving their:
- Body control
- Strength and Flexibility
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a full body workout that improves functional fitness. Our classes cater to all fitness levels and we focus on giving each child the tools that they need to improve their lives.The mental aspect of Jiu-Jitsu. Training will keep their mind active and engaged as Jiu-Jitsu is about making strategic decisions and improving critical thinking skills. The benefits extend beyond the academy as your child participates in other activities. We believe that the mental benefits of training are equally as important as the physical aspects. Giving your child the confidence to think through a situation and solve a problem with their mind is a very powerful tool.
The social benefits of training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are priceless. We create a healthy environment where like-minded people come together to share the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Your child will be encouraged to interact with other children through the physical practice of training, but the real benefit happens when the children start working together to help each other achieve their goals. This is a natural occurring process at our academy because we foster an atmosphere of teamwork and respect. Friendships made on the mat (at the academy) often last a lifetime and we believe that surrounding yourself with healthy, positive people, will benefit your child as they move through different phases of their life.
At Kroyler Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, we are dedicated to helping your child achieve their goals. Whether they are looking for self-defense (bully prevention), to improve their fitness, or competition Jiu- Jitsu, we have a team of instructors that will help them succeed.
