The 10 Best Reasons to Learn Brazilian Jiu-jitsu

Are you ready to go to the next level with your fitness, self-defense skills, and mental strength? If so, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) training might be for you!

It’s as real as it can get. That has made me a better person. It’s made me a better man. It’s made me understand myself, my weaknesses, my strengths, the shit I need to work on. Jiu-jitsu has been one of the most valuable tools I’ve ever had in my life. Joe Rogan

BJJ is a martial art that focuses on fighting on the ground and submission holds. Here are the top ten reasons you want to train BJJ:

  1. BJJ builds strength and cardiorespiratory endurance: train regularly and you'll see amazing results in terms of whole-body strength and fitness. And what's best? You'll be having so much fun you won't even notice how hard you're working out.

  2. Self defense: BJJ teaches effective techniques for real life. Grappling disciplines allow for sparring (rolling) with full strength application of techniques. This allows high intensity sparring with relatively low risk of injury as compared to other combat disciplines.

  3. BJJ training makes you more flexible and aware of your body, improving your posture and control of your body as a whole. The more you train, the more your range of motion will increase, along with your strength of movement.

  4. BJJ builds confidence and self-esteem: Learning BJJ can help you feel better about yourself and give you more confidence. You'll learn how to be at ease in difficult situations. Your sense of your own capabilities will grow as you train—growth that is broadly applicable in and out of the dojo.

  5. Greater resilience, mental toughness, and discipline: BJJ practice will undoubtedly make you a more resilient person, able to face difficult circumstances with the ability to recover, sustain, and grow. BJJ requires discipline and mental toughness to get through challenging training sessions and rolling. Jiu-jitsu will challenge you every day, teaching you to push through discomfort and improvise effectively. And becoming more resilient will help you throughout all aspects of life.

  6. Problem-solving skills get better. In BJJ, you have to think on your feet and come up with creative solutions to hard problems. It’s always satisfying to find a solution to a problem, especially if it involves overcoming an obstacle physically.

  7. Better coordination and balance. Because BJJ involves complex movement and balance, it can help you get better at both. This can make you a better athlete overall, and it can also make everyday activities easier.

  8. Tournaments give you the chance to compete and test your skills: BJJ tournaments give you the chance to test your skills against other practitioners. This can be a great way to see how far you've come and push yourself to go further.

  9. The chance to meet new people and be part of a friendly community: By learning BJJ, you can meet a new group of supportive and encouraging people who are just like you. This can be a great way to meet new people and make friends. Also, having a group of people who cheer you on and support you can make all the difference in reaching your goals.

  10. Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is fun! We have a great time every day while training. Challenge yourself every day in a supportive community of friends: what could be better?
