Almost every child has been a victim of bullying from older children at school or even at the playground. Bullies that harass your kid can make them feel useless or worthless and, in extreme cases, can even lead to serious bruising when things get too physical. They might feel like talking to teachers at school will only propel the harassment and could even shut themselves out to any authoritative figure. You or your child talking to teachers might not always be the best solution either. Teachers can tell the bully to stop, but he might just find other ways to hurt your child without them seeing or taking notice.

When children feel helpless it can lead to a long life of problems and as a responsible parent, it might simply be time to help them fight back. When children know they are in control, they have an easier time figuring out peaceful solutions to problems. In fact, they are less likely to obtain an illegal weapon and kill innocent people when they have learned Brazilian jiu jitsu.

Studies have shown that children’s grade scores increase when children participate in a healthy amount of exercise. We are talking about heavy and challenging exercises and not what they provide at the school’s gym class. This is because there is more oxygen flowing to the brain and they have an easier time concentrating on their studies. Not only is your child getting a good BJJ training, they are becoming healthier and smarter.

Many BJJ schools try to make champions out of your child, the Icon Jiu Jitsu team has every confidence it can do that, but we also know that children need to be in a fun environment. There is a huge percentage of our children student that come here only to learn how to be safe in everyday life and not to become BJJ world champions. This means that in our training we focus more on the self-defence aspect and not how to properly quality for the championships. Your child will be learning from the best black belt instructors and will quickly know how to fend for themselves. Our instructions will show them how to properly do various grappling techniques that will help take any bully or bad guy down. When they are older, you and your child can decide if they want to take Gracie Jiu Jitsu to the next level.
