Zara Can Do Jiu Jitsu!
by Matt Kwan

Zara works hard and has fun learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. She has her white belt, and her goal is to be a black belt one day, just like her dad.

At the dojo, Zara and the other young students learn and practice the martial art of Jiu Jitsu. They learn to tuck and roll, and fall and flip. They even learn a move called the shrimp!

Zara trains hard and uses her skills when she spars with a partner. Sometimes she wins, and sometimes she loses. She knows both are part of the sport and she keeps on trying. She has fun with her friends and does her best to get better every day.
