The kids have been taking Jui-Jitsu for three months now and they seemed to like it. I am glad that they do because this would help her defend themselves in intense situation when someone will try to attack them. This also helps the children self discipline and a really good form of exercise in general.
Last night was a fight night and our young lady fought three of them. My husband said he wasn't sure why the coach let her fight again and again and then towards the end, they realized that the coach rewarded her her first stripe in her belt. That was a nice treat for her because she got embarrassed when she got paired with one of the bigger kids and slammed her face on the mat.
These two are so competitive with each other so it made my son feel a bit sad that he didn't get promoted like she did. We told him that he might get his some other time and to just keep doing it.
Our daughter follows direction to a T, she is like her Dad who goes with direction by the book, that's probably helped her a lot.
Our son is a carefree, happy-go-lucky boy so sometimes, he forgets that you have to follow certain and specific .rules in doing things.
Nevertheless, I am so proud of both of them for sticking into this kind of martial arts. With how crazy the world we live in is becoming into, it is advantageous to know some type of self defense and this would help them to do that.
I've been meaning to look into martial arts for my boys. A couple of them have shown an interest and I definitely think it's something they could benefit from!ReplyDelete
Martial arts are a great way for kids to learn discipline and patience. It looks like your kids are doing great.ReplyDelete
Learning self defense is such an important skill that you will likely need at some time during your life. It's great that you could get the kids interested in Jujitsu!ReplyDelete
My daughter loved it when she was in karate. It gave her much needed balance and self confidence in her life.ReplyDelete
Martial arts is a great activity for the kiddos. They learn discipline, they become active and most importantly, they learn how to defend themselves.ReplyDelete
I think teaching kids jujitsu is a great thing! Everyone needs to learn skills like this and it seems to make kids so much more confident!!ReplyDelete
I loved karate when I was kid and I think my daughter would enjoy it but she is afraid to start. We had one bad experience and she is letting it prevent her from trying it again.ReplyDelete
That is awesome, congrats to your daughter. My son is black belt in Hapmudo, it's a mixed martial art. We put him in for the reasons you mentioned. Self defense, self discipline and self control. My 5 year old starts on Monday.ReplyDelete
I grew up with my dad teaching martial arts. I loved it and it teaches wonderful discipline.ReplyDelete
Awww, poor little guy. It's ok though to have a bit of healthy competition, it only makes you want to be better!ReplyDelete
I really wish that we could have kept my son in karate. It really helped him a ton but it was hard to get him to practice. I had to be home for my daughter to take her to band. It is hard having kids in two different activities.ReplyDelete
Martial Arts is so amazing! It takes so much discipline - I love watching it! Congrats to your daughter, that's a seriously awesome accomplishment! :) Keep up the great work!ReplyDelete

My cousins did martial arts when they were kids! They absolutely loved it, thinking about sending my daughter when she gets a little bigger.ReplyDelete
I didnt do juijitsu as a kid but I did some form of martial arts. My dad and uncle was into it and it taught me so much discipline and thinking quick on my feet.ReplyDelete
I remember when I was younger I lived next door to a martial arts studio. I was friends with the owners son, so he would always let me go and tumble on the mats after class. Never took one martial arts class but always went to practice my gymnastics haha.ReplyDelete
