Why should your kid learn jiu-jitsu? It’s not just about them learning how to defend themselves but teaching them how to recognize a situation that can be deescalated. They may encounter a friend, another kid, or perhaps themselves being confronted by a bully. That situation can go in any direction and end badly. The best option is to deescalate it, but there are times when that doesn’t work. That’s when jiu-jitsu comes into play. Your child can defend themselves or the other person. We all want to prepare our children for the real world. Jiu-jitsu is a great way for them to be ready for anything.
