There are 4 Ways Gracie Barra Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu Benefits Children:

1. Health

Children need an activity that gets them to put down the video games for exercise several times a week. Gracie Barra Kids classes provide a variety of games and exercise to get those youngsters active!

2. Mental and Emotional Challenges

BJJ training can help develop emotional qualities, such as self-esteem, confidence and patience that a child needs.

3. Bullying

1 in 7 students is either a victim of bullying or the perpetrator of bullying. Ju-Jitsu doesn't teach children to be monsters, but does teach them what to do when they encounter one!

4. Character development

The martial arts have long been known as excellent ways for young people to learn important life skills of respect for authority, self control and patience, cooperation with others, and self discipline.

Head Coach, Roan Theron, comments: "When you consider all of the challenges facing the children in your communities, it is easier to see that they are the ones who have the tough road ahead of them. However, when you give them the opportunities of offered by Gracie Barra Jiu-Jitsu, you have the power to change their lives for the better."
