My grandson Mason is a student here. He loves going to class and has gotten a lot out of the experience. His mother was so impressed that she also joined as an adult student! They are both continuing to advance in class and rave about the staff. If you’re looking for a place to go, this is it!

I visited the academy while on vacation at Cape Cod, wow it was a great to be able to attend a JiuJitsu school while on the road. Thanks again for allowing me to drop it, until next vacation!!

Amazing instructors (and instructors in training)! They will meet your child where they are at and work from there, the change and confidence increase you see almost immediately is amazing. We plan to be at The Pound for a long time!

5 Confidence Tips for Children

Tips on Building Confidence in Children

Let’s face it, with statistics on the rise of children experiencing symptoms of  depression or anxiety, the need for increased confidence among our children is vast!
Confidence is an important character trait. Those that have confidence bounce back faster from challenges are not afraid to take risks and learn new things. They accomplish more because they believe in their abilities and they stay committed longer because they do not let obstacles get in their way.
So how can we as parents and caregivers help raise confident kids?
🔥 Let kids take healthy risks: risk taking allows children to problem solve, identify choices, and use critical thinking skills.
🔥 Give choices and let them choose: choices allow children to take part and ownership in what is best for them and take responsibility over the choice l.
🔥 Identify responsibilities and expectations: age appropriate responsibilities allow children to feel valuable and competent.
🔥 Encourage them to pursue interests: when children are interested they are invested. When your child becomes invested in an interest it becomes a strength and success they can be proud of.
🔥 Praise often: praising a child allows them to hear that they are doing well and others are noticing.
Children with confidence are happier, more creative, resilient, and adventurous. Who doesn’t want that for their child?
