I would absolutely recommend this gym to anybody looking to get started in martial arts. The coaches are great, super friendly and you can tell they all really care for all of the members. I've been going for about five months and even signed up both of my kids (they love it too)!

I joined the QCBJJ team 2 years ago and have loved every moment of it... training is diffidently a highlight of my week. The instructors and students are fantastic... the training environment is amazing. I would highly recommend Queen City if you are interested in learning more about practical self defense.

I trained BJJ for years and I wanted to see if my kids would also enjoy the sport. I am happy to say that my kids love QCBJJ. They go 3-4 times a week and they routine tell me that BJJ was their favorite part of the day. The instructors at QCBJJ are patient and all around great with the kids. My kids were 5 and 8 when they started and they are able to pick up the techniques. They also talk every day about bullying and self confidence. Great experience all around.

Great facility! Everyone there has been incredibly welcoming and we have been very happy with the BJJ Jrs class. The kids are challenged and learning great skills, but in a supportive, patient and encouraging environment.

Academic Benefits of Physical Activity

Physical activity is not only essential for healthy growth and development, it is also important to learning and getting good grades in school.  Active kids are proven to get better grades, better sleep and have better attendance in school.

In the age of apps, tablets and streaming it can be difficult to keep these items out of your child’s hands and face without having a little scuffle about it. The sedentary lifestyle is increasing and so are child (and adult) health risks including obesity, diabetes and more.  We want our kids to be happy, but we also want them to be healthy and a sedentary lifestyle doesn’t just impact their physical health, but their mental health as well.

Studies have proven the link between physical and mental health and their ability to perform in school.  These studies are showing the link between physical activity and increased blood flow and how it helps the brain to perform.  Beyond that, exercise is an important social component for mental health.

Even more so in these uncertain times, physical activity may help kids do better in school by improving their behavior, attention, memory and cognitive function.

Often kids get too little exercise during the school day, so parents really need to get onboard and provide these opportunities outside of school.

So what can you do about it?

Incorporate activities that make things fun!  Walk or ride bikes to school with your child, create fun weekend activities that the whole family can get it in on, get involved with a team sport like martial arts, soccer or basketball.  Eat an early dinner and go for a fun walk with the dog around the neighborhood.

There are many budget and time friendly options out there to increase your child’s physical activity during the day and after school.  Help your child create enjoyable healthy habits early so they continue these habits throughout their whole lives!

Stay safe and stay healthy.
