Oftentimes when parents say they are looking for kids Taekwondo programs, what they are really looking for is a kids martial arts program that will teach them respect, discipline, but most of all, self defense, and these parents have the right idea. Now more than ever, children need the confidence, resilience, and grit that helps them withstand the challenges that life throws in their path.
However, when it comes to self defense training and teaching your kids to be bulletproof, Taekwondo creates more problems than it solves. Taekwondo relies heavily on punching and kicking techniques that cause unnecessary violence, especially in a school setting. These outcomes don’t provide a safe environment for children and are the very situations that parents and educators want to prevent. When it comes to self-defense training for kids, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the best martial art for kids.
Jiu jitsu puts kids in uncomfortable situations by having a resisting opponent in their personal space. They develop skills to survive and escape without hurting themselves or the other person. Kids learn to confront their fear and anxiety and develop the tools to overcome it.
SBG Kalispell – Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)
At SBG Kalispell, we developed the Growing Gorillas Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program to teach kids BJJ and train them to have the physical and mental strength to confront any challenge. The curriculum teaches kids to safely handle conflict and prevent them from becoming targets for bullies and predators, while developing the skills to be independent thinkers and future leaders.
More importantly, Growing Gorillas learn the life skills to develop good character and form strong relationships. Our life skills homework provides them with the training at home and in school to develop leadership, kindness, courage, perseverance, and respect that teach them to be independent thinkers and positive role models among their peers.
