Why Your Child Should Start Training Jiu-Jitsu

So many kids in Parkland and in the rest of country don’t go to school because they are afraid of bullies. Recent research indicates that bullying may be the biggest source of low self-esteem in children. According to some studies, the vast majority of the cases of bullying are not reported at all. It’s well known that Jiu-Jitsu can be a tool to help kids stand up to bullies, but how?

Here are the 4 reasons why the gentle art actually helps kids to deal with abusive colleagues.

1.) Self-confidence repels cowards.

A bully is a coward. He or she identifies those who lack self-confidence and prey on it. Jiu-Jitsu gives kids the self-confidence to stand up for themselves at the moment of the first approach, usually a verbal one. Once you know that you can defend yourself, you will let the bully know right away and they will usually back off.

2.) An antidote to fear and insecurity.

There are two main ingredients to bullying: fear and insecurity.

The fearful is usually the victim and the insecure is usually the aggressor that seeks confrontation to hide their own feelings of weakness. The gentle art will teach kids to defend themselves when necessary and help them deal with fear. At the same time, it will address insecurity and help that aggressive kid to be more confident, polite and respectful.

3.) Respect for differences.

There’s no room for prejudice on the mat. As you have to actually prove yourself against all sorts of people, you quickly realize that we are all equal in our shortcomings and potentials. The difference lies on how much work we put in to neutralize one and boost the other. This notion will most likely accompany the child outside the academy as well.

4.) The bonds of friendship.

Bullies go after kids who have trouble making connections, feel different and don’t relate well in the group. Jiu-Jitsu will work as a mediator and help the child make friends. Being a contact sport, the gentle art is a channel to make everyone fit into the group. If you don’t fear the group, being part of it becomes much easier.
