    My 6 year old son started BJJ. What is the best way to support him?

    I know nothing about martial arts. I did fuk around style little kid karate in the 90s, which was basically a waste of time IIRC. I think I was a yellow belt lol.

    My 6 year old just got his first stripe at a local BJJ place. I was surprised that he was wrestling during his first training session. He is HOOKED, and despite the fact that he's probably going to be a manlet (mom is 5'1" fuark), he is excelling faster than the other students and he's actually taking it seriously unlike a lot of the kids. Instead of just flopping around he is always trying to work in the techniques they've learned. Textbook single-to-double leg takedown on a kid who had several inches (and a lot more experience) on him today , and he popped up with the biggest chit eating grin I've seen.

    At home he wants to do workouts and "practice" but I don't really know how to help him. Probably cardio and burst (hill sprints, etc)?

    Sign up as well. I see parents do this a lot.


    But if thats not possible or not your thing simply being there and cheering him on (and the other kids/his opponents) is great.

    I see parents who also cheer for the kid their child is rolling with. Its a very supportive and positive environment.

    BJJ competitions now have reached the point where you can make some serious money. Can evem get by without having to transition over to MMA. So he may have found a passion that could pay off down the road.

    I've thought about signing up ngl. The guy who runs the place looks like a Brazillian gang member with head to toe tats, but dude is one of the nicest people I've ever met and he's great with the kids.

    I signed up a few months after enrolling my 5 year old. Just got my blue belt and bjj is one of the best things to come into my life. Going to get my youngest in next but he is still 4 and my oldest hasn’t been able to train for a year due to covid while I was going to peoples basements all year.

    Mostly I just roll with my kids get them to work on things like holding/establishing frames, knocking legs to one side have them reframe etc.

    It’s hard to work a lot of moves due to size differences but simple things like having them work armbars from mount work.

    Instead of sprints etc.. good drills might be things like shrimping, front escapes, back escapes, frontrolls and back rolls etc.. things you see them drilling in class.

    But really just rolling and making them tap a million times is what we do. Just having fun.

    Really cool you are doing this for him. While other boys are playing soccer your son is learning how to put them in an armbar. While other boys are trying to figure out what gender they are and playing with makeup your son is learning how to choke them out. Good job dad. My grandfather (who was my father figure) was teaching me about boxing when I was that age. Helped me a lot down the line.

    Buy a mat, put it in your garage, and roll with him. It’s a sport you can do with your son and it’ll make him better.

    Good job Dad man. Keep supporting him and be consistent with it. Don't let him drop motivation in the sport. I always wanted to box when I was little but parents could never afford it. Had to join wrestling team in HS and it was the only stress relief and good bonding experience.

    I'm super proud of my traditional, non degen family (srs). It was a big decision financially to have my wife stay at home and raise our boys. She is awesome, and homeschooling has been going great. I like that they are learning about the Constitution, US history, etc in addition to doing a great job with math, reading, and science. In public school he'd be learning about trans kids and chit. He's also way advanced compared to his peers (we always have play dates, etc for him to spend time with other kids.

    BJJ seems like a great way to teach life lessons that I learned playing football. How to deal with adversity, doing things that scare you, losing with grace, etc.

    Accompany him to events and support him emotionally.

    Maybe buy him a practice dummy as a present for Easter. He can practice all his moves on that thing. You could also build one yourself or with a 6-year-old maybe even find a plushie with somewhat similar proportions to his training partner.
    Youtube is full of Bjj quality tutorials and drills he could do on that thing.

    Even easier: Just ask him what technique they did during training that week. Have him slowly demonstrate and explain that technique to you. Then proceed to have him drill that technique 15-20x or so. Do the same for techniques from previous weeks.

    Also look up "shrimping" and "bridging", and have him do those things a lot. If he gets much better than his competition at those two patterns he will be nearly unbeatable since noone could get a point or submission on him.

He is HOOKED, and despite the fact that he's probably going to be a manlet (mom is 5'1" fuark), he is excelling faster than the other students and he's actually taking it seriously unlike a lot of the kids. Instead of just flopping around he is always trying to work in the techniques they've learned. Textbook single-to-double leg takedown on a kid who had several inches (and a lot more experience) on him today , and he popped up with the biggest chit eating grin I've seen.

    At home he wants to do workouts and "practice" but I don't really know how to help him. Probably cardio and burst (hill sprints, etc)?

    First time ever clicking on this section of misc.
    Best thing BY FAR you can do is to do it with him. He will love rolling and training with his dad.

    Get mats for at home. They are relatively cheap, and you don’t need a huge amount of room to do simple drills / technique / flow roll.

    My sons are 13 and 16, and they both have been training for almost a year now. I’ve been training for a few years now, and help coach. We have mats at home, so we drill / roll almost every day. My sons LOVE doing it with me, and it forms a huge bond to have such a mentally and physically strenuous mutual activity.

    But if thats not possible or not your thing simply being there and cheering him on (and the other kids/his opponents) is great.

    I see parents who also cheer for the kid their child is rolling with. Its a very supportive and positive environment.

    BJJ competitions now have reached the point where you can make some serious money. Can evem get by without having to transition over to MMA. So he may have found a passion that could pay off down the road.
    I agree with this, if this was my parent, I strive to be the best as fast as I can.

    I bought a mat for use to roll around on in the living room.

    I want to buy this for him so fukking bad. Are these decent quality or junk? If its legit and he can get a year out of it then I'll gladly spend the money, but not sure if its crappy and just sold because its DBZ.

    I personally have used cheaper Gis than that and they lasted years despite me being 250lbs. and sometimes using them for pull ups. Perlweave cotton is the most commonly used material for Gi's so it should be solid.
    I am not shure if it will lose color when cleaned, but the material will likely outlast your sons growth.

    Talked to the boys coach tonight. He said my son "has it", whatever that means. He's in a class with other little kids but 50% of them DGAF and he said you can tell the kids that want to be here and the ones that don't.

    I've been working out with him for the past few weeks and its been a lot of fun.

    There is one boy who is 7 and has probably 15lbs on my son. He also has 4 stripes to his 1. They are buddies, but he is pretty much the only one they partner him up with to wrestle. Its usually nearly a stalemate but on Friday my boy got wrecked. Just got out positioned and double leg take-down/pinned very quickly. He teared up a bit but shook it off and shook the kids hand. His coach said that was the most important thing he's seen. He hates to lose, but he's not a sore loser. Lol in class today he just fuking annihilated everyone, and got complimented for being so aggressive.

    Anyway, I asked the coach what the best thing I could do for him and his advice was to sign up. I'm fat and no longer in good shape misc. Coach was like, "If you wait until you're in shape, you'll never do it." Wut do

    BJJ is great. I have been training for 11 years. If you sign up you can work together on your off time. This does not mean you have to compete, just do a couple of classes a week and try to learn it for yourself.

    Another way you can help is to have him teach you what he has learned. Let him lead and show you moves.

    Signing up will GET you in shape. And it’s more fun than any other cardio or weightlifting.

    There are plenty of purple belt fatties that annihilate me regularly. Even one white belt guy who I was white belts with that I thought I would steamroll during white belt days due to him being overweight, but was able to dominate the roll, he’s now a blue belt with me and has probably dropped 50lbs and is thick solid tight now.

    Joining up to do it with my son was my reason for joining, but it’s become one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.

    Never seen anyone puking tbh. M

    Most new people just use 100% energy and 100% strength and power then get gassed too quickly. It’s all about breathing and recovering with bursts of intelligent use of force.
