  • Growing Gorillas Life Skills Homework


    One of the things that makes SBG’s Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program unique and special is our Life Skills homework.

    SBG coaches take their jobs seriously, especially when it comes to working with your kids. Not only are we going to teach them Jiu Jitsu, but we also want to be positive influencers and role-models. Part of your child’s personal growth will be participating in our Life Skills program, where we look to teach them valuable lessons in areas such as:

    🔥 Responsibility

    🔥 Punctuality

    🔥 Honesty

    At the beginning of each month, your child will be given a monthly Life Skills homework packet. In this packet, they’ll receive a story, along with a ‘quiz’ that they’ll complete. In addition to that, they’re given monthly assignments to complete that will not only help them to grow as young adults but also make life a little easier for you, the parent 😉. Some examples of the assignments you’ll see in their homework packets are making their bed, helping clean the dishes, and looking up the weather and telling their parents what tomorrow’s forecast looks like.

    When your child returns their Life Skills homework at the end of the month they’ll receive special bright-colored stripes to represent their accomplishment.

    Life Skils homework can be picked up from the front desk at the beginning of each month. At the conclusion of the month, your child will return their completed homework to their coaches.
