So this week I had the honor of teaching a group of 7 autistic children some BJJ techniques (it was for 3 hours broken up in 30-40 minute intervals). At first it was a challenge to get and keep their attention, but after a while it became easier and fun. A lot of the kids responded well and I thought it was a great day.

I got feedback the next day that the instructors at that school, and the families of the kids LOVED the reactions and response to what I taught to the kids.... They said that they've never seen the kids gravitate towards a person and activity like BJJ before.

18 years of doing this art and I'm still impressed how it effects people and communities in a positive way..... Has anyone else had an experience like this either in their gyms or locally?
