Art camps, dance programs, and sports activities all provide exceptional benefit to your child. However nothing provides the most amount of long-term investment like martial arts. Combining both mental and physical improvements to a child’s development, many parents in Spruce Grove turn to Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for its popularity and benefits. Here are 7 reasons why martial arts in Spruce Grove is your best choice for your child or children.

It’s a confidence builder

Nothing brings a strong level of confidence to a child like empowering them with the skills and knowledge of martial arts. It’s one of the best reasons to enroll – we’ve seen shy and quiet kids break out of their shell by learning and applying techniques. Conditioning allows your child to focus better and perform under pressure, giving them the necessary tools to improve themselves mentally. It’s more than just throws and sweeps.

It’s a positive experience

Choosing the right club is important; you’ll want them to grow in a safe and friendly environment. A positive lasting experience is important, so take advantage of tours and free trials to make sure it’s the right fit for your family. Fortunately, most martial arts gyms in Spruce Grove provide a positive environment – but we’re a bit partial to ours of course.

Martial arts IS teamwork

Contrary to popular belief, martial arts isn’t just a one-on-one sport. Learning techniques and practice requires exceptional teamwork and communication. Reaching the next belt class isn’t a race amongst your peers – everyone is looking to help each other succeed. Plus, there’s something powerful about having your club’s badge on your gi.

Community is everything

The Spruce Grove community is very active and fun, which is why martial arts programs extend beyond the gym. Park demonstrations for self-defense to summer kids camps provide excellent opportunities for your child to grow in all aspects. It’s a vibrant community to join!

Keeps your children active and fit

TV, iPads, PS4’s – everything is keeping your child physically inactive. It’s time to balance that out by letting them release their physical energy with a martial arts class. Keeping your kid healthy and active provides obvious long-term benefits, and martial arts is easily one of the best choices for keep them in shape. And just in case you’re wondering: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo are some of the most safest martial arts disciplines available. Let them learn with confidence.

Say goodbye to bullying

The best kind of self-defense is the prevention of conflict. Judo is known for its fantastic bully-proof techniques, allowing smaller individuals to not only understand how to avoid a fight, but will protect themselves against larger peers. No striking necessary. Besides, what bully would want to mess with your kid when they know they have their Judo belt!

The Rodrigo Resende Academy was recently featured on the Spruce Grove Examiner during a seminar hosted by BJJ legend, Master Maximiliano Trombini.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an increasingly popular sport among Canadians, but few students of the martial art actually get the chance to train with Brazilian-born teachers.

That isn’t the case for students at Rodrigo Resende’s school in Spruce Grove and that privilege was two-fold last Saturday, as students had the opportunity to train alongside their Brazilian-born coach, Resende, and visiting Brazilian Jiu Jitsu master, Maximiliano Trombini.
