What is next for my daughters training?

I started my daughter in Jiu Jitsu about 4 months ago. I put her in a tournament and she seemed to have some natural talent (maybe itís her brother beating her up all the time). Iíve started teaching her what little I can about stand up - check it out here:

My question for the forum ---> What would be next? Iíve taught her all I know about stand up (it ainít much). Jiu Jitsu class is very very light and short. It seems to cater to the 5 Ė 7 year old crowd and is lighter then the Taekwondo class she used to take.. she doesnít even have someone her size to workout with most of the time. I figure my options are: Keep her in Jiu Jitsu or put her in one of the following classes (I have researched and have access to the following): Local Boxing Gym, LA Boxing, Taekwondo (they are pretty aggressive but have massive amounts of students and few instructors), Youth Wrestling or maybe something I'm overlooking. Thanks in advance for your advice.

wrestling my good sir. As much as i hate it, its the main thing fighters need to know to survive these days. If you know wrestling then you can take the fight to the ground easier and possibly avoid being taken down if you would rather stand. Of course this is all just my opinion, others might say differently

im with the first response regarding Wrestling, you're in the country where this sport is widely practitioned, take advantage of this.

Other than wrestling Muay Thai would be a good step up for her stand up,you seem from the video to have been teaching her well so she would naturally walk into Muay Thai classes.

Overloading on different forms some may argue this is a good thing,me personally I think with developing minds its best to instil a fundamental base she can always rely on instinctively, now BJJ is great when working submissions but having that more adequate wrestling base will help her even more to take her opponents down and dictate.

I would most definitely get her involved with Wrestling.
She could use some work on her takedown techniques, and wrestling would most def. help her on that aspect.

Props on being a cool dad.

def. wrestling and boxing. my daughter has had a great time and benefited from her boxing training, which is part of the TKD school she goes to. (small classes, lots of one-on-one instruction time)
