Why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the best Martial Art for Children
Andy believes Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is the best choice if you are looking to get your child involved in martial arts.
BJJ is a natural martial art based on leverage and balance. It is a non-violent yet effective self-defence system which gives a smaller person the ability to defeat a larger, stronger opponent. This is wonderful for children’s self-esteem and confidence. Children also become more "body aware", improving their co-ordination and other physical abilities which in turn helps them improve and excel in other sports and activities.
Watch your child improve:
All instructors have enhanced CRB checks, public liability insurance and first aid training.
A number of membership options are available – pay monthly or annually to get unlimited access to all martial arts courses, or buy blocks of sessions in particular disciplines and train when you can.
