 The Benefits of Jiujitsu for Kids with ADHD


ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a common occurrence among children. Kids with ADHD usually have high energy, short attention span and restlessness. Thus, they often cannot participate in seated activities long enough to complete the required tasks.

Sports like Brazilian Jiujitsu tend to be best for kids with ADHD.

In BJJ, the child has a team where they practice together and yet has an individual aspect to it where each one can win on his own.

Grappling in Brazilian Jiujitsu and deep touch pressure may act as a calming or focusing agent which can be helpful for these kids.

The competitive aspect of BJJ allows kids to test their newly acquired skills and techniques.

Children with ADHD can benefit from jiujitsu by learning to cope with stressful situations and taking control either by escaping from a control position or trying to figure out the next move while under pressure.

BJJ helps develop self-discipline. They learn to follow rules both inside the dojo as well as outside of class.

Jiujitsu helps with socialization skills and appreciation for others.
