What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is for everybody

You don’t have to be physically fit or under 50 to start training BJJ. Virtually anybody, regardless of age, gender or fitness level can start training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Because it’s designed to empower the smaller, weaker individual, you’ll discover that the techniques you learn will work against someone much stronger and heavier.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will put you in the best shape of your life 

If lifting weights and doing cardio in a gym isn’t for you, perhaps you should consider Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Without even realising it, you’ll work every single muscle in your body from the warm-ups to drills to sparring. Unlike other martial arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu requires resistance. You’re constantly pushing or pulling your training partner as you practice techniques over and over again.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an art you can practice for the rest of your life

As mentioned earlier, anyone can start training BJJ and keep on training as long as they like. Also known as “the gentle art”, BJJ is a lifestyle that everyone could continue to enjoy well into the later years of his/her life. Helio Gracie, one of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu’s forefathers, practised jiu-jitsu until his death at 95 years of age.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will make you a better person  

There’s a reason why only a tiny percentage of BJJ practitioners will get their black belt. Not everyone has the perseverance to keep on training for 10 years to receive it. But the more you train BJJ, the more you understand the value of resilience. Although there’s instant gratification from performing a technique correctly in sparring, it will take many, many tries before getting a technique right. This perseverance will teach you how to follow through, an equally useful quality off the mats.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will challenge you 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is also known as the game of human chess. It will teach you how to harness both your physical and mental strength and apply it in sparring. You will learn countless techniques and principles, and over your years of training, you’ll see them evolve right before your very eyes. You will spar many different training partners and become exposed to many different styles of Jiu-Jitsu, teaching you the importance of being well rounded. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself analysing your every move, both on and off the mats.
