What Does Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Teach Kids?

BJJ does not just teach children self-defense, it also teaches respect. While protection is a big part of the program, learning how to use their skills and strength appropriately and effectively is a large part of being a good practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It also gives children a way to expel stress from their bodies. Children also face stressors, however they may not be able to name and pinpoint them like adults can. The physical activity side of BJJ encourages the body to release endorphins (brain chemicals) that reduce stress.

Is BJJ good for a 5-year-old kid?

Yes! This begins the development of good habits from a very young age. Stimulating the mind and physical body, BJJ introduces children to making exercise a good and important habit in their daily lives. Not only that, it is fun and opens many doors for future opportunities, such as competitions.
