Confidence is a belief in oneself, the conviction that one has the ability to meet life’s challenges and to succeed and the willingness to act accordingly. Being confident requires a realistic sense of one’s capabilities and feeling secure in that knowledge. Life is tough, it throws challenges at us day in-day out, wether you are a child or an adult – life does not discriminate. One thing we know and what we provide at Gracie Jiu Jistu is that a key factor to success is confidence. We help our students build confidence, children and adult.
Our programs and classes are designed to activate an inner belief by way of training to learn and succeed. Our programs involve 1 on 1 technical combat, technical challenges in high pressure situations with open and active person to person sporting conflict on the mats. Once you experience this environment on a routine basis, week in – week out, year after year – adults and children build a resilience, an incredible resilience.
When exposed and conditioned to much higher than average sportsman like conflict (1 on 1 Jiu Jitsu, Grappling, Wrestling), a child or adult develops a very high level of confidence that is often taken to all facets of life for many years to come being school age to maturity in work life. A child that has experience in Jiu Jitsu, Grappling or Wrestling is far less likely to suffer from bullying at school or even later in life at a work place as an adult. A sense of ones capabilities and feeling secure with that knowledge allows them to have the confidence to eliminate bullying on most occasions before it even starts. Lifetime Confidence.
