Anthony Colon is the Lyndhurst Kids Martial Arts February Top Student. The Savarese Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy student joined the program in June of 2015 and since has really found a love of martial arts. Over the past month and a half, he has dedicated himself to making it to class more than ever. He embraces everything that is taught in the Kids Martial Arts program. His dedication, discipline, and confidence are just some of the changes he has shown in the last month. Anthony just competed in his very first tournament on Sunday at the New jersey Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (NJBJJF) and did fantastic,  placing 1st in his division. His instructors at Savarese BJJ are really proud of his progress.  His love of the martial arts has lead to both of his parents joining as well as his little brother Alex.  When selecting a Student of the Month, the instructors look for many things in the students in our program and Anthony exhibits them all. Great job this past month Anthony and keep up the great work!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for kids

In BJJ Kids Programs, students are instilled with qualities that will help them throughout their lives. Through the principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu the kids learn that Commitment, Respect, Focus, Self-Discipline, Hard Work and Effort always make for a rewarding experience and bring positive results. At Savarese BJJ Academy in Lyndhurst, NJ, we specialize in empowering children who have never joined any physical activity. We have turned kids who have been victims of constant bullying at school into confident, respectful and skilled martial artists. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not meant to teach children how to fight. Children are taught to work through confrontation on an intellectual basis first but if the prospect of bullying needs to be addressed, our children are the ability to defend if attacked. Consistency is paramount. Inconsistent training will many times lead to discouragement and failure to develop passion for training. Our award winning program has produced many champions in martial arts and has helped many students deal with the fear of being bullied.

Sonoma Valley High girl uses martial arts to defeat bully

Everyone, male or female has the right to defend themselves from an attack. This girl stood up to a bully using martial arts techniques. She used a clinch, takedown, and knee strikes against her attacker. She should be commended not only for standing up to a bully but for not being a victim. The story is that this started as cyber bullying, then started again in school, then water was thrown on her and here is the result. Then the teacher is chasing her. This happens so often now. Protect your children with the gift of martial arts. I have dedicated my life to helping those people stand up to the bullies in their life, mentally and if be, physically. Good for this girl! This victory is more much that a victory in this fight. She refused to let people bully her. Enroll your child or teen in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school near you.

About Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a devastating fighting and grappling art developed by the Gracie Family of Brazil. While it is most famous for its extremely effective ground fighting techniques, BJJ contains many stand-up throws, takedowns and self-defense techniques that can finish a fight. BJJ, also known as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, was developed to allow the smaller person to defeat the larger person through the application of leverage and submission holds such as chokeholds and  joint locks such as armbars, kneebars and leglocks. BJJ is a versatile Martial Art. Its varied applications include a realistic self-defense system, a complete sport, a proven fighting style and a fun and healthy recreational activity. It is quickly becoming one of the most popular Martial Arts in the world today because of it’s versatility.
