One of my best buddies has a little girl who’s 7 years old. My buddy feels like she was pushed around as a kid and never had the opportunity to develop confidence. Now, my friend doesn’t like the term “soccer mom”, nor the culture that goes with it. She was looking for an activity for her daughter that would be individualistic and not have her feel like she was being ranked or hidden in a team.
My friend enrolled her daughter in Jujitsu, a martial art. The little kid now has her blue belt and the most beautiful posture outside of a ballet class. She is very respectful, toned and quietly self-assured. I think that martial arts are a very cool group of sports for girls to be involved with.
