If you answered ‘yes’ to any one of the above questions, then it is imperative for you to enroll your children into the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a self-defense combat skill, similar martial arts such as karate, judo and kung-fu. The basic intention of this combat technique is to teach a smaller person to defend himself/herself from a larger and overpowering enemy. It is not only limited to kids. Today there are even adults who are getting trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu just to protect themselves in unforeseen circumstances.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a technique that has been handed down to us from monks of the ancient times. The roots of this martial art type are traced to India where Buddhist monks practiced this technique for self- defense during times of need. The uniqueness of this technique lies in the fact that it is a non-violent means of fighting people because the art form depends more on clasping and clutching rather than on kicks, thumps and punches.
This Brazilian Jiu Jitsu introduces children and kids to discipline in life. Learning the art form requires a lot of practice and dedication from children as it is rigorous and taxing on the body. In the process of learning this technique, qualities of self-discipline are inculcated among children. For children who regularly encounter bullying problems at school, this is a good way of protecting themselves without getting bogged down or depressed.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu also helps children to get accustomed to a balanced and healthy diet. Learning and practicing this Jiu Jitsu requires an individual to be fit and healthy. People who are obese and lethargic would find it difficult to pursue learning this art form. By eating a proper diet during the training sessions, children understand the benefits and advantages of having proper food habits.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu also helps children develop important personal traits such as respect for elders, faithfulness, trustworthiness etc. Similar to the act of responding with proper reflexes during an attack, the art also imbibes, in children, values that help children in understanding the good and bad and responding to a situation in the rightful manner. The Jiu Jitsu environment trains kids to develop amicable relationships with colleagues and teaches them different ways and methods of adapting to a changing environment in an easy and stress free manner.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is gaining prominence slowly but steadily. In addition to the benefits that it provides children and kids, it has also gained the attention of adults. In today’s context, Jiu Jitsu is being looked at as a dignified profession with ample scope for prosperity and fame. If this trend continues, without doubt, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will be one of the most sought after martial art form in the foreseeable future.
