Should you enroll your child in MMA classes?
Depending on who you ask, there’s certainly a wide variety of opinions of MMA. Some people think it’s a fantastic sport with a lot of promise, but others are uncomfortable with the amount of physical contact that a participant endures during competition. Regardless of your stance on the issue, there’s certainly no debate that MMA is a growing sport. More than ever, parents are enrolling their kids in MMA classes at an ever increasing rate. So, is it a good idea to enroll your child in MMA classes?
MMA is very fitness intensive; there is a high-degree of activity required of the participant and this leads to improved fitness results. There is no one on the face this planet who would tell you this is a bad thing. One of the benefits of MMA training is improved cardiovascular fitness due to aerobics training, which we at Sampa Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu accomplish through jump rope training, calisthenics exercises (such as push-ups, “jumping jacks”, sit-ups, and light-jogging). Medical research has shown that children should not weight train until at least age 12, so the kind of training that Sampa Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides is a safe and healthy alternative to weight training.
As most parents surely know, children tend to lose interest in activities very quickly. After a short period of time, they may find that they are not actually interested in the activity they picked out for a number of reasons. Here at Sampa Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we do everything we can to provide a safe and effective environment for your child to learn martial arts, and we also do everything we can to make sure that your child stays interested in the sport. We make training fun. While repetitive drills and persistent reiterations of the same technique may work wonderfully for training adults, we completely understand that children are entirely different creatures. We do everything we can to make sure that we mix up the activities and the training here so that your child always has something fun to look forward to when they come in to train. We promise that your child will have so much fun that they will be excited to come and train at Sampa Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, while still gaining all the benefits of improving in a respected sport.
