JIU JITSU INSTRUCTION GREAT FOR ALL AGES!
A dozen years ago when I started Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instruction, the sport was in its infancy. The general public knew little about it. Classes consisted mostly of younger guys who may have had some other type of prior martial art training. Much has changed over the years in terms of the popularity of Jiu Jitsu instruction and the various people who train it.
PARERNTS – LOOKING FOR A GREAT PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR YOUR CHILD?
BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU INSTRUCTION IS IT!!!
People of all ages now train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. However, the most phenomenal growth has come in the area of youth participation. BJJ instruction provides good physical exercise for a generation glued to electronic “toys” and the internet. If a parent is searching for an activity that will develop strength, balance/coordination and agility in their child, they need look no further than a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class.
JIU JITSU INSTRUCTION DEVELOPS HEALTHY SELF ESTEEM IN KIDS
Jiu Jitsu instruction benefits are not limited to a physical aspect only. Training also helps the younger participant to develop a healthy self-esteem, confidence and respect for others. Jiu Jitsu instruction usually involves a class regimen that kids are expected to follow. This helps the child to develop specialized learning skills and discipline that can help them academically in their regular school classroom.
PRECISION MARTIAL ARTS YOUTH CLASSES HELP KIDS DEAL WITH BULLYS AT SCHOOL
Most public and private schools across the nation have adopted a zero tolerance for bullying of any kind. As a veteran school teacher, I was honored to work with my BJJ instructor, Master Tom Dinklage at Precision Martial Arts in developing a class curriculum aimed at giving kids the tools to deal with a potential bully. Training in how to deal with a bully has now become an integral part of youth classes at PMA.
ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD TO TALK AN ADULT IF THEY EXPERIENCE BULLYING AT SCHOOL
Key to this instruction is reinforcing to kids the need to first inform an adult (teacher, principal, parent, etc) if they are experiencing any type of bullying at school. Class instruction includes how to respond to both physical and verbal bullying. Role playing by instructors and class members are a valuable aide in teaching our students how to handle a bully.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in its beginning may not have been perceived as something youth would train. However in today’s world, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instruction has given kids an effective, proven method to help keep them healthy and safe.
