Kids Grading – May 2019

Last Saturday (25/05) we had an amazing day, grading our kids at Gracie Humaita Sydney Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).

It is always so exciting to see our little warriors improving their skills through our Kids Program. Congratulations to all of you!

The Gracie Humaita Kids Grading happens twice a year and it is based on the techniques that are taught through the year by our coaches at the Academy.

The kids eligible for Grading are chosen by our coaches based on their performance, commitment, and attendance to classes.

Jiu Jitsu is a great form to educate our youth, and it can help kids to stand up against bullies.

Congratulations to all new graduates, coaches and instructors.

A huge thanks to all the parents for bringing their kids to classes and for trusting in our work.

Jiu Jitsu: The perfect sport for kids

Did you know kids can start training Jiu Jitsu with us as soon as they turn 3 years old?

And we can give you great reasons why they should:

FITNESS AND ATHLETICISM

BJJ is an extremely athletic sport that requires you to use nearly every part of your body. Through Jiu-Jitsu you will develop strength, flexibility, agility, and cardiovascular fitness. Developing these skills and attributes at an early age is important and will instill habits and an understanding of fitness that they will hopefully retain for the rest of their lives.

TEAM WORK

Not only will you will support you teammates when learning techniques, if you decide to compete in tournaments you will do so as part of a team. Nearly everything you do in Jiu-Jitsu will be done alongside a group of individuals that you will bond and grow with. BJJ academies are typically very social places.

SELF-DEFENSE

Hopefully no child will ever be placed in a situation where they will have to physically defend themselves. However it is impossible to protect them 24/7, so it is nice to know that they have the ability to protect themselves if necessary.

Jiu-Jitsu teaches you to control an opponent as opposed to physically hurting them which makes it the especially good for anti-bullying.

RESPECT

Respect is a core principle of every established martial art. In particular Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches respect for your coach, respect for your teammates, respect for your competitors, and most importantly, respect for yourself.

CONFIDENCE

As a child’s ability on the mat grows, so does their confidence.  We consistently see shy children slowly emerge from their shells as their confidence grows alongside their ability. Children that may have previously been unable to maintain eye contact begin to confidently into class, eager to engage with everyone around them.

COMPETITION

Competition helps kids learn that it is not always the best athletes who are successful, but rather those that work hard and stick with it.

BJJ competition is not compulsory but is an option for parents that would like to see their children compete. Kids BJJ Competitions are usually very well organized and run in a safe environment under strict rulesets.

LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has a clear and well defined progression structure for children. Just like adults, children are graded and awarded belts/tips based on the amount of time spent training in conjunction with their level of skill.

This system of progression teaches children that reward is gained through effort and an investment of time spent learning. As mentioned above, it is not about winning but about getting a little bit better every day. In this way BJJ encourages children to develop a growth mindset.

FUN!

Perhaps most importantly, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most fun things a child can do. All it takes is a few classes for many people become addicted to the sport and spend every moment of spare time trying to improve their skills. What makes it really fun is that you get to do it alongside your friends.
