Kelly Slater to parents: ‘Put your kids in Jiu-Jitsu before other sports’

A who’s who of Surfing as well a BJJ blue-belt, Kelly Slater fully understands the benefits of practicing brazilian jiu jitsu known as the gentle art. Marcus Buchecha and the Mendes brothers in Costa Mesa, Calif sat down with Kelly Slater just last week for a brief discussion.

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.
