Benefits Of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Kids
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an intense, aerobic, and anaerobic workout that helps any child’s fitness and health improve. It is a fun exercise for children to develop body coordination as well as personal development and growth. The benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu goes above and beyond any other martial art due to its adaptability in the skills and techniques that a child learns to takedown an opponent.
Training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu takes many people out of their comfort zones because it is based solely on avoiding kicking and punching and little violence. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses a variety of joint locks, chokes, holds, and throws instead of the basic punches and kicks. Many children have to focus for extended periods of time since they are training against a resisting partner instead of a paddle or bag. This helps with a child’s thinking process, problem-solving skills, coordination, and physical awareness. At Dreadnought BJJ, we teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu so that it also helps students learn self-discipline, respect, and focus.
Dreadnought BJJ is dedicated to empowering you or your child with the confidence and self-esteem needed to succeed in everyday life.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a high-energy training class that is great for overall health and weight loss.
Many parents also choose to enroll their children in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu because it is a great opportunity to make friends. In BJJ you need to have a training partner to practice with, so you spend a lot of time with that person. You can’t learn BJJ by yourself and cannot learn the martial art by using paddles or punching bags. You need someone to grapple with and create a bond of trust and reciprocation. You and your partner will motivate and push each other so you know if the new joint lock or throw you learned actually works on an opponent. Members at Dreadnought BJJ have become close friends and help each other refine their skills and reach their goals.
