EDJ School of Jiu Jitsu
Serves as an Escape
The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry found that a huge fraction of kids’ days is spent glued to a cell phone, tablet, computer, or television screen. They reveal, “On average, children ages 8-12 in the United States spend 4-6 hours a day watching or using screens, and teens spend up to 9 hours.”
Don’t let your child waste their childhood – move them away from the TV and into the dojo. In a world where kids are constantly connected and easily influenced by the content they see online, EDJ School of Jiu Jitsu aims to serve as an escape from the noise. We believe that Taekwondo helps students regain their focus, find relief from academic and social pressures, set goals for themselves, and experience a level of accomplishment and fulfillment that can’t be found virtually.
Teaches Discipline and Respect
We know what you’re probably thinking – “If my goal is to reduce my child’s screen time, why not just enroll them in any other sport?”
Great question! Unlike all other athletic activities, the martial arts focus on teaching life lessons just as much as they focus on teaching physical skills. Though its exact origins are not completely determined, Taekwondo is believed to have been around for thousands of years. Historically, this discipline didn’t just focus on the physical – it focused on the mental and emotional as well. Taekwondo requires students to demonstrate discipline and respect both in and out of the dojo. This means paying attention in class, referring to your instructors with the correct terminology, practicing at home, and respecting your parents and elders. At EDJ, we aren’t just creating amazing martial artists, we’re creating amazing people.
