Finding Calm in the Chaos: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Style
Everything is going swimmingly. We have our routines. Kids are well adjusted. Then boom. School is shut down. Mom’s the teacher. No more play dates. No more normal. Welcome to Everyday Chaos.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can help because BJJ is about finding the calm in the chaos. BJJ is a contact sport that takes people out of their comfort zone, puts them in a high energy situation and pushes them to deal with it in real-time when things seem most chaotic.
It’s a process and our parents are essential to it. They give the hugs and support as their children slowly gain success with the techniques and build confidence. After a while, if a child falls or get squished by another student, they don’t cry; they bounce back with superhero enthusiasm.
The kids have managed to find the calm in the chaos and do what they have been trained to do. This is a priceless skill to have, not just in sport, but in everyday life. This is also no accident. In our academy, we are very intentional in how we teach this skill. Students learn to deal with chaos in a controlled environment with an instructor always ready either to allow let them fight out of a tough spot or to intervene and let them re-compose.
In our academy, our manta is focus, perseverance and self-control while meeting chaos head-on. This life skill can be relied on when facing life’s toughest obstacles. Be safe. Oss
