We get a lot of parents inquiring about training Jiu Jitsu or taekwondo and what’s best for their kids. And the answer is, it depends! All martial arts bring something unique to the table. Taekwondo has some pretty impressive kicks, is a great workout and has a strong emphasis on moral conduct.
Jiu Jitsu is our preference OBVIOUSLY so here’s what our art offers. We focus on mainly ground work, grappling. However in our SBG Academies we also incorporate judo and wrestling so that we know HOW to ground our opponents. This is a great way to approach self defense because it doesn’t rely heavily on athletic attributes and it’s easier to control a larger person when they are downed. At SBG Missoula we believe that it’s just as important and crucial to develop character so that our kids are, not only well adjusted little humans in society, but are the leaders and innovators of the future. That’s why we designed a lifeskills curriculum that intertwines with our Jiu Jitsu curriculum to create a “whole” childhood development program.
