Getting kids into martial arts at a young age can be a wonderful thing for them. Not only do the arts provide great exercise, but martial art classes have been shown to have a positive mental effect on children. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a popular martial art with all age groups, and kids are no exception. Teaching BJJ to kids comes with a particular set of challenges, though. Specifically, challenges related to rolling. It’s important that students get the chance to test out the techniques they learn in class. But sometimes, their own energy can get the best of them. Rolling turns into horsing around with a friend. Or an uneven number of students make it to class, leaving one kid the odd man out when it comes time to partner up.
