What is BJJ?
BJJ stands for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting techniques.

Developed from traditional Jiu-Jitsu practices in Brazil, BJJ emphasizes leverage and technique to allow a smaller or weaker person to defend themselves against a larger opponent. Practitioners, known as "jiu-jiteiros" or "jiu-jitsu practitioners," use a variety of techniques including joint locks, chokes, and positional control to submit their opponents.

BJJ has gained popularity worldwide and is commonly practiced both recreationally and competitively.

Self Defense

BJJ teaches children practical self-defense techniques that are effective even against larger opponents. By learning how to control an opponent using leverage and technique rather than relying on size or strength, children can gain confidence in their ability to protect themselves if necessary.


Physical Fitness

BJJ provides a full-body workout that improves cardiovascular health, strength, flexibility, and coordination. Children who practice BJJ develop better overall fitness levels, which can contribute to their health and well-being throughout their lives.


Discipline and Focus

BJJ requires discipline and focus to master its techniques. Children learn to listen to instructions carefully, practice regularly, and remain focused during training sessions. These skills can transfer to other areas of their lives, such as academics and extracurricular activities.


Problem Solving Skills

BJJ is often compared to a physical chess match, requiring practitioners to think several steps ahead and anticipate their opponent's movements. This encourages children to develop strategic thinking and problem-solving skills as they learn to outmaneuver their opponents on the mat.


Respect and Humility

BJJ emphasizes respect for training partners, instructors, and the art itself. Children learn to show respect by bowing to their partners, listening attentively to instructions, and treating others with kindness and humility. These values are an integral part of the BJJ culture and can help children develop into respectful and well-rounded individuals.


Emotional Resilience

BJJ training can be physically and mentally challenging, requiring children to push past their comfort zones and persevere through difficult situations. Overcoming obstacles on the mat helps children build resilience and confidence in their ability to overcome challenges both on and off the mat.



Overall, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers numerous benefits for children, including improved self-defense skills, physical fitness, discipline, problem-solving abilities, respect, humility, and emotional resilience. These benefits can contribute to their overall development and well-being as they grow and mature.

Why should kids do BJJ before any other sports?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) offers several benefits for kids that make it a valuable sport to consider, both on its own and as a complement to other sports:

  1. Physical fitness: BJJ is a full-body workout that improves cardiovascular health, strength, flexibility, and endurance. It helps children develop coordination, balance, and agility, which are fundamental skills for any sport.
  2. Self-defense skills: BJJ teaches kids how to defend themselves in real-life situations, which can boost their confidence and sense of security. Knowing how to handle themselves physically can also reduce the likelihood of bullying and improve overall safety.
  3. Discipline and focus: BJJ requires discipline and focus to learn and master techniques. Kids learn to pay attention to details, follow instructions, and practice consistently, skills that are transferable to other areas of life, including academics and other sports.
  4. Problem-solving and critical thinking: BJJ is often likened to a physical game of chess. It requires strategic thinking, adaptability, and the ability to anticipate and counter an opponent's moves. These problem-solving skills can translate to other sports and academic pursuits.
  5. Respect and sportsmanship: BJJ emphasizes respect for coaches, training partners, and opponents. Kids learn to win and lose gracefully, respect authority, and work cooperatively with others, fostering positive social skills and sportsmanship that are valuable in any endeavor.
  6. Injury prevention and body awareness: BJJ teaches kids how to move their bodies safely and efficiently, reducing the risk of injury in sports and everyday activities. It also enhances their proprioception and spatial awareness, which can improve performance in other sports.
  7. Mental resilience: BJJ training can be physically and mentally demanding, requiring kids to push through challenges and overcome obstacles. This builds mental toughness, perseverance, and resilience that serve them well in all aspects of life.

While BJJ offers numerous benefits on its own, it can also complement other sports in several ways:

  • Cross-training: BJJ provides a unique form of physical conditioning that can enhance overall athleticism and performance in other sports.
  • Transferable skills: Many of the skills learned in BJJ, such as balance, coordination, and body awareness, are applicable to a wide range of sports.
  • Injury prevention: BJJ can help prevent injuries by improving flexibility, joint mobility, and core strength, reducing the risk of common sports-related injuries.
  • Mental benefits: The discipline, focus, and problem-solving skills developed in BJJ can enhance performance and resilience in other sports.

Overall, while BJJ may not be the ideal sport for every child, its physical, mental, and social benefits make it a valuable option to consider, both as a standalone activity and as a complement to other sports.

Sometimes you can wear a Gi or uniform from another martial art (ask the instructor about this issue).  You will need to buy a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi if you continue training.
