messageJiu Jitsu or Self-defence Martial Arts for 5 year old
Posted by Tea 22 November, 2018 22:31

Good evening all,

I hope this post finds you well.

Does anyone know of any Jiu Jitsu or some other type of martial art clubs in the local area?

My daughter was "strangled" at school the other day by an older child. The strangler was spoken to and is apologetic, but I've just been told by another parent (who didn't know what had happened my girl) that her daughter was strangled in the same week too! My daughter was confused, couldn't explain it to me clearly and thought it was a game.

Anyhow, I think it's a good idea to get her into a class to help build her confidence, assertiveness and deal with bullies etc.

Any help appreciated.

Many thanks,

Tea

Yes Sun taekwondo has classes at Jags on Mon and Thurs and kids on Saturday. Great but not really self defence, TKD tends to be more concentrated on learning patterns and at higher level sparring at competitions. Whereas Wingtsun they teach kids how to keep safe and only use force when it's last option so more in lines of self defence and getting out of holds.
