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.

Your New Family Activity: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

School is back in session, so now is the perfect time to talk about how to find family activities, and ensure quality family time for all!  If you have kids of different ages and possibly different schools, then you know how challenging it can be to find things to do as a group. What excites your 10-year-old daughter is likely to bore your 7-year-old son – and vice versa.

There’s one exception that we know of – and that’s taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes!  Studying BJJ is fun for people of all ages. It’s a great way to learn something new, get in shape, and discover common ground with the people who matter most to you. Here are some of the best reasons to study BJJ as a family.

#1: Making Exercise a Priority is Good for Everyone

People with kids sometimes struggle to make time in their busy schedules for exercise. And, a lot of kids would be content to spend their days sitting in front of a video game or television.

The solution? Signing the whole family up to study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! As parents, you’ll be setting a good example by practicing what you preach about exercise. Kids will have a chance to burn off some of the excess energy they have, and the whole family can improve their health by getting regular workouts.

#2: Finding Common Ground Will Bring You Closer

When you do things together as a family, you build strong bonds that bring you closer. Even though you and your kids may be in separate classes, we think Brazilian Jiu Jitsu still qualifies as a group activity because you’ll all be pursuing similar goals.

In your free time, you’ll be able to talk about what you’ve learned. You may decide to practice together as a family – and you can attend competitions or go see the latest martial arts movie together. These things can all help you find common ground with one another.

#3: Learning the Tenets Improves Interpersonal Relationships

The tenets of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are the core of what you’ll learn in class – and they go far beyond the physical movements you’ll be working to master. In fact, practicing self-control, courtesy, and persistence will help you in every area of your life.  Learning self-defense may prove invaluable one day!

Families who study BJJ together find that their ability to focus on what’s important improves as a result. You’ll all learn to be aware of each other’s needs and to respect one another. Those are important lessons for kids, siblings, and parents.

#4: Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is Fun

Anything you’re going to do as a family should be fun – and BJJ classes most certainly are! A good BJJ class is a social event combined with a great workout. You’ll get a boost of feel-good hormones after class and the whole family will be smiling.

Kids who might balk at doing a “boring” family activity will look forward to learning how to execute perfects take-downs, sweeps and submissions. You won’t have to worry about whether the whole family will enjoy studying BJJ – they will!

Conclusion

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a family can help you come together across the generations – and it’s a great way to carve some family time out of your busy lives.
