As a kid growing up in the 80s, Karate became well-known thanks to The Karate Kid. With the reboot, Cobra Kai, Karate is once again popular in mainstream culture. Cobra Kai has fans nostalgic for a story and characters that they loved as kids.
The downside of Karate is that, like Taekwondo, it relies heavily on punching, kicking, knee strikes, and elbow strikes. Punching and kicking come naturally to kids. Because they see it on mainstream media, they associate it with fighting. However, the results of these techniques can be harmful and devastating. They can result in cuts, sprains, and even concussions, things that no parent or educator wants on the school playground. These shouldn’t be strategies we teach children to deal with conflict.
The benefits of a kids BJJ program are that it teaches kids to deal with uncomfortable situations and gives them the tools to safely handle them. If an aggressor punches, kicks, or pins them down, kids trained in BJJ can control their opponent and defend themselves without doing any harm. They learn how to subdue their aggressor and de-escalate the situation without injury.
