5 Ways Martial Arts Improves Kids Grades

We’ve all seen the headlines “Martial Arts improves your kids school progress” or “Take Jiu-Jitsu Lessons To Help Your Kid In School!” So one of the top questions we often get from parents is, “Is this improved grades thing just salesy BS or is there an actual connection?”

Believe it or not, it’s not just hyperbole! It’s real.


FOCUS: Kids learn how to focus when they train martial arts. It begins with the physical techniques, but they learn to internalize it. Over time, their mental focus becomes razor sharp!

CONFIDENCE: It’s no secret that confident kids are more likely to do better in school. They are better at admitting their weaknesses, taking responsibility, and asking questions. All of this leads to better learning and better grades.

PHYSICALLY FIT: Jiu-jitsu promotes fitness and an active lifestyle. Fitness promotes brain health and improves clear thinking. Clear thinking leads to better test grades and school work.

GOAL SETTING: Kids love earning new belts. But the process of earning belts teaches the kids how to set goals and meet them. Of course, it’s easy to see the connection between reaching goals and improving grades.

GRIT! Sometimes what we really need when things are tough is the ability to grit out teeth and drive through it. Hard work toward a difficult goal is probably the most important lesson these kids learn. When its time to study for that test, or finish that paper, grit will be what takes your child through the challenge.

Honestly, this list could go on forever. But the only way to see if your child can be helped by Gracie Jiu-jitsu is to try it.
