When can my child start BJJ

Leeds Martial Arts Centre accept children as young as four years old for their Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for children classes in Leeds. For some children, this may be a little early and it may be a case that they come back and try again in six months. For most however, they thrive on the learning involved with martial arts, as well as the fun & games aspect that we include. They will start in the smaller children’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class until they reach 9 years old, and then they will graduate to the senior children’s classes until they are 16/17 when they will finally join the adults classes.

Why BJJ For Children?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for children is a fantastic way to help in your child’s development. We take shy and reserved children and give them confidence in themselves, bringing them out of their shell and interacting with other children in no time. On the other side of the coin are the boisterous, highly active children that we are able to give a calming influence to, reeling in some of that energy and giving it some focus.

We find that parents often remark on the positive effect that martial arts has on their children, improving their home life and school life.

One of the other, and unfortunate, reasons you may want your child to start Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Leeds, is to deal with bullying. We have a number of children that have come to us with this problem and we completely understand the trauma this can have. We teach children to not only be able to defend themselves, but to be aware of their surroundings, understand some of the reasons why people bully and to generally feel better and more confident about themselves. The reduction in children being bullied once they start Martial Arts is amazing and we are more than happy to have a chat with you about any aspect of this.
