There are many benefits of participating in Jiu-Jitsu as an adult and as a child. And because you can train Jiu-Jitsu at any age, it’s an excellent activity for all experience and fitness levels. Which makes it possible to train Jiu-Jitsu as a family, as well.
The varying backgrounds you see in Jiu-Jitsu makes it a great option for families to practice together. Given the classes and programs available, each family member can find something that fits them best. Here are three reasons to train and share Jiu-Jitsu as a family:
1. Bond over a common interest.
When your family has a shared interest, it brings you closer together, and you can build stronger relationships. This shared interest opens the door to conversations you might have about what you like about Jiu-Jitsu, how your training went that day, or what you want to work toward in the future. Your family can also celebrate individual accomplishments together and share in each other’s successes.
2. Improve health and fitness as a family.
Another great thing about training Jiu-Jitsu as a family is that you can all improve your health and fitness together. Adults who engage in regular physical activity set a positive example for their kids. Committing to a consistent Jiu-Jitsu practice shows your kids that you value exercise and living a healthy life. At the same time, kids who are more physically active early in their lives are more likely to maintain this habit and become physically active adults. Plus, as kids improve their fitness, they’ll also learn important self-defense and character-building skills applicable to all areas of their lives.
3. Shared accountability.
When you share Jiu-Jitsu as a family, you end up holding each other accountable. By sharing this common interest, you’re guaranteed to have a supportive group of people right there in your own home who will motivate and encourage you. Even if you’re all enrolled in different programs, you can still be there to support one another and share accountability.
