Benefits of Jiu Jitsu

Gracie Magazine #147 I read two months ago had a great article about shaking the misgivings of jiu jitsu that mothers often have. They sent out 10 most convincing arguments for readers in distress that I wanted to discuss here:

1. Lose weight and gain a shapely body

2. Release stress through riveting physical activity

3. Learn to protect yourself and loved ones

4. Surprise yourself with what you're capable of achieving

5. Avoid confusion and unnecessary situations

6. Make lifelong friends

7. Gain greater vigor and energy throughout the day

8. Quit cigarettes and other bad habits

9. Become full of self-confidence and self-love

10. Learn ways to change what you don't like about your life!

I believe there are two other benefits not on the list.

#1 Jiu Jitsu teaches you to move and to use your body improving your coordination

#2 Gives you another goal to achieve in life, should you choose to master the art or achieve success in competition

Jiu Jitsu's benefits are endless but for everyone different ones apply to different individuals. The above are just some of the reasons why we benefit from Jiu Jitsu and how it makes us better individuals. Me, I think it taught me to also respect others and strive towards achievement together with my classmates.

BJJ changes people for the better and I think that is one certain benefit that always applies.

  1. Nice informative article. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu enables you to dominate a larger and stronger opponent through the use of technique. BJJ does not involve striking (punching and kicking like other martial arts), which means you do not have to hold back out of fear of truly hurting your opponent. You can train at full strength against an opponent who is resisting you at full strength. This means you train the same way you fight, which makes you more comfortable if a real fight begins.
