Embracing the athlete’s learning process means that my son isn’t the only family member learning a lesson.
Back in January, my 7-year-old asked to try Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It seemed like an odd choice for my bookish, space crazy little one but he was adamant. After a little research looking for an instructor who wouldn’t scare the pants off my little guy, we assured him that it was perfectly ok to tell us if he didn’t like it and attended his first class.
