I can’t imagine where I would be now if I had started training BJJ at five years old. It’s a shame that there were no BJJ schools where I grew up. I bet you I would have been a world champ or a movie star like one of the Three Ninjas. Those kids were straight up bitches.
Sorry. Back to what I was originally talking about – listen to this little tidbit I just found from the Emerates Jiu Jitsu website: Children aged nine to 11 will be taught jiu jitsu in their physical education classes in 42 government schools this year. Eighty-one coaches have been brought in from Brazil to serve as instructors.
