“The Top 10 Reasons Why Halcyon Jiu-Jitsu Is The Right Place For Your Child To Learn Martial Arts!”

Unlike other martial arts that involve learning complicated patterns and hand movements that frustrate kids, Brazilian jiu-jitsu is based on natural and instinctive movements that kids enjoy doing.

Reason #2: Jiu-Jitsu Is Fun!

Kids love doing Brazilian jiu-jitsu, because the practice of BJJ mimics their actual play patterns. Plus, we integrate fun drills into training that are designed to teach kids motor skills through games and play. There’s no other child-age activity like jiu-jitsu for helping kids develop coordination and motor skills in a playful environment.

Reason #3: Jiu-Jitsu Is Great Exercise!

One of the top things I hear from parents is that their kids sit around watching TV and playing video games way too much. Jiu-jitsu gives them a reason to play hard and sweat again, doing something they love to do. It’s an absolutely fantastic activity for getting kids moving and doing something constructive.

Reason #4: Jiu-Jitsu Builds Confidence!

Brazilian jiu-jitsu helps kids develop confidence in themselves by giving them greater physical confidence. A child who feels weak and helpless will act weak and helpless… but a child who feels strong will act like a leader. That’s what jiu-jitsu does for kids.

Reason #5: Jiu-Jitsu Is Bully-Proofing!

saying no to bullyingA kid who feels powerful won’t readily bow down or fold under to a bully’s taunts and teases. Besides that, confident kids are much less likely to be bullied. And heaven forbid, but if it comes down to a bully trying to hurt your kid, there’s no better self-defense skill than Brazilian jiu-jitsu for your child to learn.

Reason #6: Jiu-Jitsu Is Social!

Kids who do jiu-jitsu learn good social skills, because they’re constantly interacting with other kids throughout their classes. BJJ isn’t like other martial arts that just line up kids like little soldiers and have them punching and kicking the air or targets. In jiu-jitsu your child will be interacting with other kids during the majority of their time in class, making friends and bonding with their classmates. This is a priceless aspect of BJJ that other martial arts can’t match.

Reason #7: Jiu-Jitsu Teaches Positive Values!

Brazilian jiu-jitsu practice emphasizes teamwork, healthy competition, good sportsmanship, and trying your very best. Rather than just parroting “positive values”, these are lessons that kids are practicing in jiu-jitsu, each and every day.

Reason #8: Jiu-Jitsu Teaches Resiliency!

Besides instilling positive values, jiu-jitsu also teaches that failure is a part of the learning process. And, kids learn through jiu-jitsu that winning is not a zero-sum game, because in jiu-jitsu whether you win or lose, both parties learn something in the process. This is something that becomes a daily reminder to kids in jiu-jitsu that there is always another match, another session, another chance to improve on what was done before.

Reason #9: Jiu-Jitsu Improves Grades!

But what I can tell you is that we make academic achievement a central value of our jiu-jitsu program. Consider us a “second voice” backing up what you’re teaching your kids about trying hard in school.

Reason #10: Jiu-Jitsu Is Easy To Start!

Unlike a lot of kid’s activities, there are very few added expenses to training in jiu-jitsu. All you really need once you start classes is a uniform and a belt. We provide all that for you, and make every attempt to make it as easy and affordable as possible for your child to train. So, you can expect minimal additional costs associated with enrolling your child in jiu-jitsu, and zero hidden fees or expenses.
