Premier Mat Sharks jiu-jitsu programme provides numerous benefits to kids, and enrolling your child at Premier may possibly be one of the best choices you ever make for them. If you’re deciding whether or not jiu-jitsu is right for your child, here are seven reasons why we think jiu-jitsu is great for all kids.

1. build premier confidence

It's hard to determine where confidence comes from, but we do know how it can be obtained. Kids with more confidence will do better in school, and in life. Our Mat Sharks Jiu-jitsu programme naturally builds a child’s confidence. As strange as it sounds, there's just something constructive about submitting an opponent that is euphoric and confidence-boosting.

2. Jiu-jitsu develops discipline in kids

At Premier we teach all of our students to never give up and to keep pushing forward. The ability to focus and stay on track is something everyone needs to develop when studying at Premier. This skill can be learned from jiu-jitsu, but applied in all aspects of of life.

3. Jiu-jitsu teaches kids to defend themselves  

In a perfect world, no one would ever need to learn how to defend themselves. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world, and situations can arise where people get too aggressive. Knowing how to defend yourself from an aggressor is an important life skill that provides value throughout your child’s life. Jiu-jitsu is a proven self defense system that can effectively show kids how to defend themselves in a time of need.

4. Jiu-jitsu helps kids make friends and be social

Making friends is an important part about being a kid. Learning to interact with others and working together are critical to early childhood development. Jiu-jitsu is not an individual sport, and you can’t practice it alone. The members of Premier are your teammates, not your opponents – who become your lifelong friends.

5. Jiu-jitsu teaches kids humility

Martial arts are known to build confidence, but Premier jiu-jitsu also develops humility. Premier students are often humbled by the abilities of their peers. Submitting others can build confidence, as mentioned before, but this comes after countless times of being on the receiving end. These experiences build humility and appreciation.

6. Jiu-jitsu keeps kids healthy

Childhood obesity is a problem that our society faces, attributed to unhealthy food and inactive lifestyles. With television and technology available and addicting, kids can easily become accustom to them.  It’s best to break these habits early and get children to learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle. These lessons will help them the rest of their lives. Jiu-jitsu provides kids with a safe way to exercise while learning a skill that can help them throughout life.

7. Jiu-jitsu is a lot of fun

Probably the most important reason that kids should learn jiu-jitsu with us at Premier is that it's fun. In jiu-jitsu, kids not only have an outlet for their energy, but also have fun while practicing it. Learning jiu-jitsu as a kid or as an adult, you will surely take away a positive experience that that can contribute to success of your life.
