Getting Good Grades Isn’t Impossible
If your child is struggling is school, there could be an alternative approach to punishment to get them to improve their grades. What I’m referring to is having your child try out Brazilian Jiu Jitsu here at Supremacy Jiu Jitsu. A general understanding of martial arts is that it helps learn self-defense and respect, but there is a third element that is very prevalent in Jiu Jitsu: mental toughness.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu isn’t an easy martial art to undertake. Some techniques can be complex and going toe to toe with your peers on a daily basis can be difficult. However, if they can overcome this, students have a mental rebirth. It requires focus and discipline, which are skills they acquire overtime. After the mental crucible, students come out more confident and mentally prepared for anything. During their time training, they begin to comprehend that they can set goals for themselves and that they are attainable. All of these new skills can be applied outside of the gym as well. Naturally, this will lead to higher grades in school. Paying more attention during class and completing goals with their schoolwork leading to higher grades overall.
