What Is Brazilian Jiu-jitsu?

Brazilian jiu-jitsu, also called BJJ, is a fighting style and sport from Brazil. This style shows how a smaller person defends against a more prominent opponent, not by strength or attack but by leverage, grappling, and ground tactics. But BJJ is not only about combat. It fuels mental warfare, urging users to strategize and plan decisively.

Why We Teach Jiu-jitsu to Kids

Kids' jiu-jitsu offers more than just physical benefits. It helps children develop self-discipline, respect, and an open mind. Children can find their strengths, work on weaknesses, and value sustained effort. BJJ's physical component keeps kids healthy, honing their coordination and fostering a proactive attitude toward fitness. It helps kids be more confident in real-life situations and defend themselves. At Electric City BJJ, we build robust and insightful kids through jiu-jitsu training.
