I have implemented many different approaches for teaching kids Martial Arts but have only found one approach that has worked well for all kids across the board. That approach is encouraging them to have a growth mindset.
For those that train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we all know that trying to take down an experienced opponent can be a very tiring and gruesome affair - from fighting for grips to being sprawled on. Enter: Okuri Ashi Harai which translates to Double Foot Sweep.
1. Confidence through effective self-defense
The importance of being able to defend themself is the greatest tool a young child can have to raise their confidence. Bullys will never go away but through training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ), we can give children the skills and confidence they need to effectively protect themselves and others.
