Why You Should Learn Jiu Jitsu
To be prepared is the only way you can keep yourself out of harm’s way. You might think that a can of mace will be able to do that but if you don’t have time to take it out, then it is useless. This is why you have to learn Jiu Jitsu.
Jiu Jitsu is an ancient Japanese martial art. It is technique which consists of ground grappling, punches, kicks, throws and weapons. The key here is leverage so even someone small will be able to learn it.
If you think defending yourself is the only benefit of learning Jiu Jitsu, think again. Studies have shown that learning a martial art like this one will help build balance and coordination, increase your self-confidence and self-discipline, improve mental focus as well as reduce stress.
It is also a great form of exercise that will significantly improve your endurance, flexibility, muscle tone, speed and strength since you are doing this repeatedly to get the technique right.
You can also learn Jiu Jitsu to attain fame and fortune. You will have to learn this technique first and become an expert just like Royce Gracie who used this technique to win the first four championship titles of the UFC or Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Anyone can learn Jiu Jitsu. If you enroll your child in a program, you will notice that their confidence levels will improve thanks to the help of experienced instructors and students who will all be helping in a non-competitive environment. In fact, two of the most important values that will be instilled in them is patience and self-control because it teaches them to yield rather than resist.
For adults, this will reduce your stress levels and enable you to develop conflict resolution skills since sound decisions can only be made when you are relaxed and your mind is at ease.
Regardless of age, people who learn Jiu Jitsu or any other martial art are less likely to get involved in violent situations.
So now that you know the benefits of learning Jiu Jitsu, the only thing to do now is find a gym that offers it. You can ask your friends, check out the neighborhood gyms or surf online. Once you have found it, see if you can attend one class then decide whether or not you want to pursue it. Most gyms offer the first class for free so you should take advantage of it.
There are certain rules which you have to follow in order to learn Jiu Jitsu. This includes wearing the proper attire, how to address the instructor and proper behavior in class which is to show respect and for the safety of everyone present.
Students who practice and are ready may move on to the next belt. This can happen at any time as long as you are able to complete the requirements. If you fail, then you just have to practice where you had trouble and then retake it.
Jiu Jitsu which means the gentle art is not designed as an offensive weapon but rather a defensive one. This will be very useful during an attack because you will be able to subdue your opponent without causing any injury but bodily harm may be necessary if you have no other choice.
