Ever wonder what those sweaty (mostly) men are doing on the ground when you walk by a combat sports gym? Same.
You're probably thinking, "Why would I ever want to do that?", or "Meh, that's just not for me." Totally feel ya.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the most rapidly growing martial arts in the world. So what is it?
Basically, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a ground combat sport that requires push/pull resistance movements with the ultimate goal of gaining control over your opponent. It will mentally stimulate you like a chess match, and physically challenge you every single time.
So, what's in it for me?
Jiu Jitsu is a fun sport, and ANYONE can do it! Here are a few reasons you should give it a try:
1. IT'S A GREAT FULL BODY WORKOUT
BJJ is a ground sport, and requires a lot of push/pull resistance movements. We know that push-ups and pull-ups are some of the best exercises for your entire body- now imagine doing them while someone is trying to push or pull you down.
2. IT'S CHALLENGING
Who doesn't like a little challenge? BJJ is not only a fun sport to learn, it also challenges the mind to create different strategies for the body to follow. This is a 1 vs 1 sport, and your goal is to gain control of the other person/control the situation.
3. BUILDS CONFIDENCE
Not only are you learning a new skill, you're able to apply this skill to real situations. You'll find out what your body can really do, and it's amazing! They say Jiu Jitsu changes lives, and we believe it!
4. ALWAYS LEARNING
BJJ is a very dynamic sport-- there's always something to be learned mentally and physically. Let's just say, you'll never be bored, and your mind will always be healthy.
BJJ is one of the best martial arts you can learn for Self-Defense. Both Men & Women of all ages & sizes can do Jiu Jitsu. One thing about BJJ is that a woman/man can "gain control" over a larger opponent with good technique and strategy.
