What are the main BENEFITS of taking Jiu-jitsu classes?

Jiu-jitsu training has become one of the most popular activities for men, women and children nowadays. It has many great physical, mental and emotional benefits. It’s incredibly easy to start, you don't have to be an athlete and no previous training is needed.

What stops most people from training Jiu-jitsu, in the beginning, is intimidation. Jiu-jitsu is not all-out fighting, you might be afraid, at first, but once you get past that first step, you’ll be glad you did it and you will find out how much fun Jiu-jitsu really is.

The most obvious benefit is knowledge of self defense. Knowing how to defend oneself and loved ones in a dangerous situation is an asset in today's world.

Many people take up Jiu-jitsu classes for the fitness benefits as well.

Jiu-jitsu will increase the power of your body, improve your cardiovascular fitness as well as tone the muscular system. Jiu-jitsu improves your flexibility since entire ranges of motion from the body are exercised. Jiu-jitsu improves coordination and discipline (something that is required in whatever you do). Jiu-jitsu increases self confidence, your challenges in life, physical, mental and emotional, will be met with much less fear.

It opens up your mind, it teaches you how to improvise, you get smarter and more able to deal with life.

You will notice that your performance in different areas of your life (work, school, love life) will improve.

Stress relief and Psychosocial Benefits of Jiu-jitsu

Unlike many other forms of physical activity, martial arts also have a mental and emotional element which not only improves the mind's focus but also helps in self control.

Emotions such as anger and fear are better controlled through training. Many martial artists can find an inner peace through their training. In today's hectic world, these particular benefits translate into one of the most effective stress management tools available.

When training in a session or in a group class, all the day to day troubles of the world seem to be forgotten.

People come out refreshed, energized and ready to tackle the big world out there.

Jiu-jitsu can help develop both better bodies and better minds.

Jiu-jitsu training produces positive psychosocial changes that are greater in magnitude and diversity than those produced by many other physical activities. Practicing Jiu-jitsu develops beneficial psychological changes and encourages good moral and ethical development.

Jiu-jitsu reduces stress, anxiety, aggression, anger, mood disturbances, hostility, neuroticism and the feeling of been vulnerable to attack.

Jiu-jitsu improves personal growth, self-confidence, independence, self-reliance, self-esteem, self-control, self-knowledge, self-improvement and self-discipline.

Jiu-jitsu training leads to more easygoing, warmhearted and participating individuals than do a variety of other sports.

Jiu-jitsu leads to positive changes in overall life-satisfaction.

Jiu-jitsu increases general mental health.

Studies show that women recovering from psycho-sexual abuse, eating disorders, substance abuse and growing up in dysfunctional families reported that martial arts training was helpful in their recovery.

Jiu-jitsu for kids

Jiu-jitsu is a fun way for boys and girls to achieve fitness and concentration.

Martial arts teach self-discipline and socialization skills. Many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with martial arts because self-control and focus are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids.

The respect kids learn is one of the most important benefits. It often carries over into school, helping to improve behavior and grades, according to recent research.
Seven is a good age to start classes, although many kids start at three or four. The only way to find out if kids are ready to take Martial Arts training is bringing them to a FREE introductory lesson.

As kids advance, the feeling of accomplishment comes with added confidence.

Children will generally become more disciplined from the unique formalities of martial arts classes. This is one benefit that is often lacking in other sports. Former "problem" kids with bad attitudes could become well behaved and respectful as a result of taking martial arts classes.

Respect is something that instructors place great importance. Martial arts kids are often very well behaved children no matter what social economic backgrounds they come from.

Why do people take martial arts classes?

  1. Most people are looking for fitness. They want to lose weight, gain flexibility or relief stress.

  2. Some people are Fun seekers. People from all ages and background want to have fun. For them the martial arts is a hobby. Something to do in their spare time.

  3. Some people are Fear motivated. They want to regain a feeling of self confidence. They never again want to feel vulnerable or doubt themselves in a physical confrontation.

  4. Some people want to become a BLACK BELT.
    To become a BLACK BELT you need a few years of training (depending on the style of Martial Arts sometimes even 10 years, it also depends on how many days you train per week and if you take private classes to accelerate the learning process).

  5. Only a very small part of the students want to become a professional fighter and fight in NHB and MMA tournaments.
