FIRST BJJ: Reasons To Get Your Kids To Train BJJ During The Summer

Reasons To Get Your Kids To Train BJJ During The Summer
First bjj center - Carlson Gracie team Utah
Salt Lake city

They won’t be glued to the TV

It’s sad to say, but many kids are excited for summer because they’re excited to watch TV or play video games all day. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Enrolling them in kids BJJ classes can keep them off the couch and away from technology, even if it only is for a few hours a week. Instead of sitting still, they’ll be getting healthy.

You don’t have to worry about keeping them busy on rainy days

As if it weren’t hard enough keeping your kids entertained during the summer, the weather has to make things more difficult. When the rain hits and the kids start to go stir crazy, taking them to BJJ training is a great way to keep them busy. They can let out all of their energy on the mats while they learn something useful.

It will help you stay sane
For your sanity’s sake, you should take your kids to BJJ classes in the summer. You can only go to the public pool, the air conditioned mall, and the expensive zoo so many times a month. And all of that activity gets exhausting.

Drop your kids off at BJJ and give yourself a break. For a few hours a week, you can relax and unwind without a child tugging at your leg asking, “What now?”

They can practice, practice, practice!

There are a lot of techniques to learn in BJJ, and the only way to master them is to practice. During the school year, it can be hard for kids to find time to go to class or to train at home. But during the summer, there’s nothing but time! Kids can learn and practice the techniques without worrying about homework or after-school activities.

It will instill self-confidence before school starts up

Whether your child is attending a new school or just is low on self-esteem, BJJ gives kids confidence. It teaches them to hold their heads up high and be proud of who they are. When they go back to school in the fall, it will be with much more confidence than the year before.
BJJ is great for everyone. But it’s especially great for kids. Don’t miss the opportunity to give your kids BJJ lessons this summer.

It will keep their brains working

Let’s be honest. Some kids just turn their brains off when school lets out. They throw their notes in the trash and save all of their summer reading for the week before school starts back up. Getting them to practice math or writing during the summer can be almost impossible.
Fortunately, BJJ gets kids thinking again. It involves analyzing and critical thinking. Without knowing it, your kids will be using their brains again.

It can help them stay healthy

Being home all day during the summer means access to junk food all day long. For some kids, it also means almost no exercise. Fortunately, you can help your kids stay healthy by enrolling them in BJJ classes. Training can get them into shape quickly, and they may even pick up some healthy eating habits. The workout kids get in class is great for the fitness and it makes them more likely to make healthy decisions when they get older.

OOOSSS in BJJ?

If you frequent any mixed martial arts forums, blogs, or social media platforms and see someone use the term “OSS” you may scratch your head and ask yourself, “what does that mean?”
When looking at the meaning of “OSS” or “OSU”, it’s important to understand that the term has several uses ranging from a greeting to answering a question and acknowledging an opponent’s skill among other things.
OSS it’s a pretty generic term derived from Japanese martial arts. It is a particularly enthusiastic way of saying “yes” or to acknowledge something or someone, similar to the U.S. Marines when we say “OOH-RAH”.
The famous “OSS” has many origins. The first definition of “OSS” as an abbreviation for Onegai Shimasu, which translates into a request, a solicitation, an invitation like “please”, “if you may” or “with your permission”, much used when inviting a partner to train.
The second definition of the word, also known as “ossu”, means Oshi Shinobu, which conveys the idea of “persevering when pushed”. In other words, never give up, have determination, grit and withstand the most arduous of training.
Carrying on without giving up, under all kinds of pressure – that’s the idea of inner strength so common in Asian culture. Therefore, at the start of a fight, the martial artist will shout, invoke, emanate the “OSS”, as a way of letting this sentiment out.
In many sources, the term is defined as a manifestation of ki energy, or in other words, a different kiai (strength), indicating one is ready to fight. According to Miyamoto Musashi, in the book “Go rin no sho” (Book of the Five Rings), the samurai would use three types of shouts: one before combat, the second during combat, when attacking, to muster greater strength (kiai), and the third after the fight, to celebrate victory or bemoan defeat.
“OSS,” beyond demonstrating strong spirit and determination before a fight, is also used to suggest or confirm a piece of information. Thus, whenever a Sensei asks or informs of something, the response is “OSS!” It is the response that will signify understanding or confirm understanding.
Many Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners use as a sign of respect.
In BJJ, “OSS” was made popular by Grand Master Carlson Gracie and was introduced as a sigh of “respect”.
Now that you understand the meaning you can step onto the matts and confidently say : OSS!
