Brazilian Jiu jitsu stops bullies and develops work ethic

“My son Zachary started when he was 10 years old, he had no self confidence but all that changed when he met Chewy and the other instructors. They have helped mold him into the strong young man he has become. Zach is now 12 and in the 7th grade, he has the tools and self confidence to handle situations that may arise as they often do in middle school. All I can say is that thanks to Derby City I do not fear for my sons safety in school. The atmosphere at Derby City has been a very positive experience and I highly recommend it!” – Terri Schultz

What would you give to unplug your kids from their electronic devices? Would you rather see them spending time building self-esteem and skills that will help them move confidently in the world, as kids and well into adulthood?

Kids these days have a lot to deal with – the information age has made their world bigger and faster with more and more to deal with at alarmingly younger ages. Confident kids who have a great attitude, kids who are motivated and directed fair better in school. They lead more productive lives as adults thanks to skills learned early in life.

Does Your Child Deal with any of these Challenges?

  • Being Bullied in School or Around the Neighborhood or Both
  • Bad or Unpredictable Behavior and Moods
  • A.D.D/A.D.H.D
  • Grades that Don’t Reflect Their Intelligence and Ability
  • Lacking in Social Skills – Could Use More Friends and Interact More Easily with Others
  • Doesn’t Seem Motivated 
  • Lacks Focus
  • Lacks Confidence
  • Experiences Low Self-Esteem
  • Has Difficulty Dealing With Authority
  • Is Overweight or Has Issues with Food

These are common problems many kids experience. Sitting in front of the TV playing video games or watching mindless programs, texting or spending hours on Facebook or other computer time-wasters doesn’t help. You want the best for your children and you lead a busy life. It’s hard to break your kids away from what all their peers are doing. It can be overwhelming at times.
