1. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is truly effective self defense.
BJJ is a martial arts system based on leverage and is designed so that a smaller, less athletic person can defeat a larger and stronger opponent. Furthermore, BJJ allows one to control an attacker without doing damage or to control the level of damage. That’s why it is a very practical form of self defense for kids and young adults. The ability to defeat an aggressor without hurting them badly is a great skill.
2. BJJ is one of the very best ways to get and stay in “fight fit” shape.
Most people don’t stay with their exercise routines because they get bored. This will NEVER happen with BJJ! Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is working out with a purpose because you are always learning and refining your knowledge. Grappling is one of the most demanding forms of exercise so you burn calories and melt fat like butter. Everyone knows that fighters are the most fit people on the planet – just turn on the UFC and watch an MMA match. BJJ will develop your speed, endurance, flexibility, and strength in ways you never imagined – it really is the secret “fountain of youth”
