The Benefits of Ju Jitsu


Ju Jitsu exercises the whole body and improves cardiovascular health too!

Our training sessions are an hour long which is an opportunity to introduce more physical activity into your kids lives, improving their strength, power, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance.


Ju Jitsu helps take your kids out of their comfort zone which develops confidence that they may take to other areas of their lives.

Being good at a physical skill is something your kids may take pride in. The belt system gives them a way to track their progress with a sense of achievement.


Bullying is a problem which is rampant in schools. Ju Jitsu gives your kids the skills they need to de-escalate and defend themselves from bullies.


Ju Jitsu requires dedication. Practicing the discipline to keep training is important as it helps keep your kids on the path to their next belt.

The discipline learned from Ju Jitsu can translate to other areas of their lives. This prepares them to adopt more responsibilities.
