Kids BJJ Tournament
Excel Jiu Jitsu hosted it’s first In-house Kids BJJ tournament on Saturday August 26th, 2017
Kids compete Jiu Jitsu
Our In-House BJJ tournaments are designed for our members to experience competition Jiu Jitsu and to get practice matches that simulate a Youth Jiu Jitsu Tournament setting. Our In-House Jiu Jitsu tournament gets our students ready for the bigger tournaments that are hosted by organizations like, IBJJF, NABJJF, NAGA, Grappling X, Jiu Jitsu World League, etc.
This is a chance for our student competitors to take their skills to the next level. To be able to practice focusing under competition stress. We get our team members ready by covering scoring, securing positions, offensive maneuvers and defensive tactics. Plus it is a Blast! Everyone is screaming, cheering and honoring all those that put it out there to compete. It is an incredible learning experience.
BJJ promotes life skills
Competition is a choice. Although we encourage competition (from the education point of view), we never force anyone to compete. Our In-House event is all voluntary. We encourage competing as another way to learn not only about BJJ but about oneself. It teaches composure, strategy, and honor.
The skills that members acquire and develop through competing in sports, will help them with life. Such concepts as, ‘Creating opportunities’, and ‘Making things happen’ are all part of striving to do your best. It is important for all students to know how to conduct themselves through winning and losing.
Boys and Girls love Jiu Jitsu
Boys and girls love that Jiu Jitsu is fun. It’s challenging, humbling and rewarding.
Grappling is great for developing strength, stamina, flexibility, and mental toughness. BJJ is a great outlet to release pent up energy and could be great therapy for many that gives children something to look forward to every week.
Competition is a great teacher
Competing in combat sports teaches us so many lessons and develops many attributes that help us to become champions in life. Competition helps us to build our character through hard work and dedication.
We look forward to helping the boys and girls to do their best. It is the best feeling in the world to know that our contribution of working together as a team is helping these kids to be pro active in becoming outstanding citizens.
We will continue to practice, practice and practice getting better and evolving to be great at what we do!
See you at the next one!
