Two male Gracie Jiu-Jitsu students train and get benefits from their time on the matsOne of the great things about Jiu-Jitsu is that you can train all year round. However, as we start to get into the summer months, it can be challenging to keep up consistency and momentum.

Here are a few reasons to train Jiu-Jitsu this upcoming summer:

1. Structure

Going to Jiu-Jitsu classes regularly during the summer is a great way to maintain a sense of structure. Without the routine of schoolwork, it’s easy to fall into a habit of hanging out on the couch or just letting the days go by. However, the structure of attending martial arts classes helps with maintaining consistency. And when you’re consistent, you’re more likely to continue seeing progress and achieving your goals.

2. Self-Confidence

Another reason to keep up with your Jiu-Jitsu training over the summer is to experience a boost in self-confidence. By regularly taking on new challenges or learning new skills over the summer, you’re more likely to wrap up the summer with an increased level of self-confidence that you can take into the fall or a new school year.

3. Social Interaction

Training Jiu-Jitsu during the summer helps your kids interact with other students and stay socially active. Martial arts classes are a way to encourage taking a break from a screen to spend time with other kids. At the same time, kids can stay engaged with social skills like listening, waiting their turn, and following the rules of a group environment.

4. Mental Training

Another benefit of training Jiu-Jitsu during the summer is the mental workout it provides. Not only are you able to stay physically active, but you also give your brain a chance to stay active as well. Martial arts classes provide mental training where you must focus, concentrate, stay disciplined, and find solutions to challenges.
