Different Reasons To Train Jiu-jitsu

Jiu Jitsu can be beneficial for everyone!

Children, women and older students also can derive great life benefit from jiu-jitsu.

Fitness

Get a balance of strength, core stability, endurance and flexibility while learning a new skill. For students who are most interested in fitness, jiu-jitsu is a great challenge.

Personal development

Jiu Jitsu is a great way to overcome personal fears and build confidence. It’s a great way to manage stress from school, work, or life in general. It’s also a great way of really getting to know your capabilities as a human.

Self defense

Self-defense is the #1 reason most people start Jiu Jitsu. Because Jiu Jitsu uses technique and knowledge of how the body works rather than pure strength, practicers are well-equipped to deal with a number of defense situations, should there be a need.

Competition

Students who love competing will benefit not only from the discipline taught by Jiu Jitsu, but the competitive aspect as well. There are numerous Jiu Jitsu tournaments to participate in at all levels!
