My son started training at Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu at almost 4yrs old, I was worried because he was on the spectrum. He wasn’t a bad child but he had some serious issues on listening to me, and was quite aggressive to other children. It took a while for him to get used to the environment seeing that he refused to look the instructors in the eye and speaking to them. However I was persistent because I could see the results slowly at home. He is now almost 9yrs old and loves Jiu-Jitsu. Like anything else I still have to motivate him to go, but the change is huge. Most people cannot even recognize that he is on the spectrum. Jiu_Jitsu has been the best for our son.
