At Serenity Jiu Jitsu we love providing childrens Martial Arts here in North Shields.
Martial arts have become more popular in recent years due to the rise in popularity of the UFC and MMA events around the world, but are Martial Arts suitable for your children?
Many parents today often find themselves looking for activities to help focus their children and improve their confidence, this is the foundation of all martial arts. Not only have martial arts been shown to improve confidence and focus in children it also helps improve grades in school and is an excellent way to promote a healthy lifestyle from a young age.
As a former school teacher my belief is that establishing strong foundations from a young age is imperative for overall growth.
I currently teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) to children from ages 4 to 13 and have seen significant improvements in their overall attitude and belief in themselves.
One of the main benefits of BJJ is that as a martial art it teaches self defence without the strikes to the head which may cause damage in the long term. Children can learn in a safe and structured environment and have fun whilst learning how to protect themselves and improve their fitness.
