THE PERFECT MARTIAL ART FOR CHILDREN
Gracie Jiu Jitsu (also known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ) is the fastest growing martial art in the world and recommend by many as the number one martial art to learn! As a grappling based martial art, the techniques of Jiu Jitsu are non-violent. It's all about staying safe, escaping bad positions and gaining control over others so you can negotiate making it the perfect martial art for children.
The confidence and security that comes with learning effective self-defence is unlike anything else.
This unshakable confidence will positively affect how your child interacts with others around them!
HEALTHY AND ACTIVE
We all know that staying active and getting enough exercise is important, but staying consistent is key.
Jiu Jitsu is extremely interesting and fun, there's more than enough to learn to keep your child engaged for years.
Jiu Jitsu is challenging, your child will learn to manage their emotions and stay calm under pressure!
These abilities will transfer to any challenge they encounter in life from school and beyond!
