Benefits Of Jiu Jitsu For Kids
Jiu Jitsu teaches kids hard work, problem solving, patience, and etc. Jiu jitsu will install these qualities into you kids improving their character and work ethic at a very young age.
If you prefer boxing, kickboxing, or conceal carry as your primary self defense, Jiu Jitsu will be a necessary supplement to your skill sets. If the fight ever ends up on the ground, which most do, some knowledge of Jiu Jitsu will be necessary to get back up on your feet, where you feel most comfortable in protecting yourself.
For self defense, jiu jitsu alone can help you overcome bigger, faster, and stronger attackers through the use of leverage and space management. Being extremely close to your attacker smothers a lot of their striking options, which lowers the risk of getting hit. Jiu Jitsu will teach you how to control someone bigger and stronger with the least amount of effort, which is also used for finishing or disabling your attacker.

Mental Benefits Of Jiu Jitsu
A huge benefit of jiu jitsu that changes many lives are the mental benefits. Most consider jiu jitsu as therapy, as a legitimate escape that effectively relieves stress and improves psyche.
One thing i found that jiu jitsu does for people better than other martial arts is humility. Practitioners develop a strong self-awareness from constant and unavoidable trial and error. Consistently re-calibrating a healthy self-perception of confidence and humility. Jiu Jitsu Instructors hardly have a high and might attitude. They act more like your friends and open minded to anything a student might teach them.
Other mental benefits of jiu jitsu is investing in focus, patience , attention to detail, and persistence. In fact, all these mental qualities are not only benefits of jiu jitsu but are also requirements to obtaining your black belt. Jiu Jitsu takes a lot of hard work. Only about 1% of jiu jitsu practitioners obtain a black belt. check out this thread for more info.

Belts & Traits Of Jiu Jitsu
If you do decide to join jiu jitsu without the interest of getting your black belt, here are some traits of each other belt you can obtain and accomplish.
Blue Belt – can effectively protect yourself in a self defense situation. Should be able to control and dominate an average person no matter the weight, size, and strength.
Purple belt – A lot of UFC Fighters fall into this category. Jiu jitsu is adequate enough to supplement their kickboxing or wrestling. But not enough to make jiu jitsu a specialization in the UFC.
Brown belt – The minimal requirement to be considered a Jiu Jitsu specialist in MMA. Capable of defeating black black belts more often in sport jiu jitsu.
