Why study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the best form of martial arts for self defense. Jiu Jitsu is a Japanese phrase that translates to “the gentle art.” When you think of martial arts, you think of punching and kicking similar to techniques used in Karate and Tae-Kwon-Do. Like Judo, there is no punching or kicking; it is a grappling and ground fighting art. What makes Jiu Jitsu unique is that it can safely be practiced with training partners, whereas striking styles can only be used in real life situations as someone may get hurt. In Jiu Jitsu, you have the ability to constantly test techniques in this evolving martial art. Rather than relying on size and strength, a smaller person can use Jiu Jitsu by leveraging and joint manipulation to defeat a bigger, stronger person. Most street fights end up on the ground which is where the Jiu Jitsu is taught and practiced.
If your dream is to compete in the cage learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will help you become a more well rounded fighter as developing a strong ground game is extremely important to be successful in a fight.
Whether you are looking to be a Mixed Martial Artist or if you are just looking to learn some self defense techniques, learning Jiu Jitsu will also get you into great shape and challenge your brain to always think one step ahead, similar to a game of chess.
