Kids BJJ (Ages 5-7)
Building A Strong Foundation
BJJ has been proven to have a wide array of benefits for toddlers. Not only does it improve coordination, teach discipline, impart the values of a healthy lifestyle, and give kids an opportunity to develop strong friendships, but it is one of the best ways for children to learn important self-defense skills. At RM Elite, we understand that martial arts is a discipline that can’t be learned overnight. That’s why we place so much emphasis on establishing a strong foundation of skills and techniques in our youngest students. The earlier students get these skills drilled into their muscle memory, the better off they’ll be throughout the rest of their martial arts journey!
Did you know that Jiu-Jitsu translates to “gentle art” in Japanese? One thing that makes BJJ so unique is that it doesn’t rely on force, allowing a smaller and less physically strong individual to overcome a larger opponent. While many other martial arts primarily utilize strikes and kicks, BJJ instead focuses on grappling, holds, and joint manipulations. This is why BJJ is considered by many to be the safest martial art! Now we know what you’re thinking: “That’s great…but how does it compare to other sports and activities?” While all sports and activities have their risks, BJJ sets itself apart from the crowd due to its lack of head injuries. While sports like soccer and football have high rates of head injuries among their athletes, head injuries are rare in BJJ. RM Elite Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, safety is always our first priority – especially with our youngest students. Our instructors are trained to ensure a safe environment and our toddlers’ classes are specially tailored to their developing abilities and motor skills.
For toddlers, the social aspect of activities is just as important as the physical aspect. For this reason, many parents automatically put their child in sports like soccer or basketball, without even giving Jiu-Jitsu a chance. But just because BJJ is an individual sport doesn’t mean that it doesn’t require teamwork! BJJ constantly incorporates collaboration among students, pushing kids to develop important social skills. In addition, the martial arts have a unique focus on personal responsibility. Your child will learn how to practice self-control, exhibit respect, and cheer on their classmates – all while never wasting a minute sitting on the bench.
