A surfing god and BJJ blue-belt, Kelly Slater knows full well the benefits of practicing the gentle art.

Slater learned a great deal as he exchanged experiences with the black-belts, and later left this piece of advice:

“I advise all parents to put their kids in Jiu-Jitsu classes before any other sport.”

Jiu-Jitsu is something so simple and harmless that any kid can practice it.

But it’s also a powerful tool to educate the young citizen. Follow Slater’s tip and sign your kid up for BJJ.
