How does Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu work?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a full-body workout that combines both physical and mental training. It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique most notably by applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the other person. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is one of the only arts where size does not matter. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focuses on techniques that are easy to learn over a short period of time. The techniques taught in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are very effective; a small amount of simple but high percentage techniques makes the difference.

Children benefit from BJJ Classes in a number of ways.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art discipline that involves grappling and submission wrestling.
The fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are to learn how to use your flexibility and leverage to defeat someone bigger and stronger than you.
There are many benefits for children in learning the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It helps develop self-confidence, learn discipline and familiarize children with the value of hard work. One of Sergio’s main philosophies is that hard work beats talent when talent does not work as hard. He and his other instructors believe that when you work hard and try your best at something you can do anything.
Studies show that children who participate in martial arts perform better in school, are physically healthier, have improved decision-making, and are less likely to be influenced by peer pressure. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches respect for others and respect of self.
With bullying an issue in children’s lives, it is necessary to give them the tools to prevent bullying all together. The first line of defense against bullying is confidence. BJJ classes help children gain self-esteem and confidence and teaches them how to defend themselves against such intrusions.
