Confidence is one of the best gifts a parent can give to their child

“Confidence is one of the best gifts a parent can give to their child.”

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an excellent activity to help boost your kids confidence.  Confidence is essential for children as they grow and develop so give them a head start and enroll them in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  Here are some ways Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can help your child become more confident.

Empowers them to stand up for themselves:

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu helps bully proof your child by teaching them non-violent self-defense so that they can stand up for themselves if a bully confronts them.  If they know they can defend themselves they will become more confident, which will show on and off the mats.

Teaches them that size and gender don’t matter:

Jiu-Jitsu is an excellent martial art for someone who is smaller than their opponent because it teaches attacks and defense from bottom positions, how to use leverage, gravity to get to a better position and where to apply pressure to control a position.  It is empowering to know that even if you are smaller you can win the fight.  It’s not uncommon to see girls competing against boys with much success as women’s Jiu-Jitsu is growing fast and girls tend to pick up Jiu-Jitsu really fast.  It shows children that no matter their size or gender if they work hard they will be successful.

Shows them that progress is more important than perfection:

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will teach kids to appreciate their progress, and how to enjoy the journey without rushing to the destination. Everyone wants instant results but hardly anything works this way, and Jiu-Jitsu is no exception. It will teach kids that it takes consistency and perseverance to accomplish goals.

Equips them to embrace failure:

In Jiu-Jitsu winning and losing is part of the journey. Failure is a part of life as well, so it is important for kids to learn how to deal with it, and know how to learn from it, and come back motivated to do better instead of just giving up. They will begin to see losses as a way to progress and learn rather then the end of the road.

Hardens them both mentally and physically:

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is challenging both mentally and physically, but this also makes it extremely rewarding. It will make your kids stronger from the inside out and teach them how to thrive outside of their comfort zone. This strength will accompany them into their everyday lives enabling them to be better equipped for the challenges life will inevitably throw at them.
