Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Youth Program at Caique Jiu Jitsu Walnut
Books, Articles, and even TV shows, have been produced in recent years about the increase in intimidation by kids against other kids in schools throughout the world what is commonly referred to as bullying. Japan, England and, of course, the U.S., have been highlighted. The image of some bully sitting on top of their child is the parent’s greatest fear and the child’s as well! What are they to do?
Why Jiu-Jitsu is the Best Martial Art Self-Defense for Children?
Jiu-Jitsu is about self-defense. The best way to defend your-self is to stop an attack from happening. Our program teaches students simple strategies and basic verbal techniques that are always the 1st step of conflict resolution. These strategies raise their awareness of dangerous situations and the dialogues help their social skills. Students at our academy will also learn how to use leverage to stop an attack and to control an attacker. If a Jiu-Jitsu practitioner is attacked and physical confrontation is unavoidable he/she will be able to subdue their opponents without the use of punching and kicking, eliminating the need to use excessive force in a real-life self-defense situation. Many parents have turned to Martial Arts like Tae Kwon Do, Karate or Kung Fu which are known as ‘striking’ sports. A striking sport is difficult to practice without suffering injuries. Also, to practice such sports teachers must restrict the practice to non-contact forms which diminishes their effectiveness to be used in a real life situation. Lastly if a smaller person strikes a larger attacker but does not disable them it could put them in an even worse situation.
