For what age is Jiu Jitsu indicated?
Some children start as young as three or four-years-old. The problem with starting your child too young is that they can develop an aversion for the sport if they’re not ready. Most BJJ professionals suggest starting your child around the age of six or when they are in first grade.
Does size matter in Jiu Jitsu?
Jiu Jitsu is a martial art which allows its practitioners to overcome larger opponents, assuming the larger opponent is not as skilled. It is in fact so effective that a myth has been perpetuated of size not even mattering. Size, weight and strength all matter.
