Jiu Jitsu is an art that will keep giving back no matter what happens in our day to day lives. Jiu Jitsu has given me confidence, improved my health and made me a better person. I hope it can do it for you as well.

Jiu Jitsu Will Help You Get In Shape, Look In Shape and Feel In Shape

To get in shape is a goal that everyone has on some level. Some people just want to drop 5 pounds off the scale while others want to get “ripped”. Either way, you are looking to improve your overall physical fitness.

It is no secret that Jiu Jitsu will help you get in shape and a lot of people take up the martial art just for this reason. They see it as a hobby that will allow them to get in great shape and lose weight, but soon realize that there is more to the practice than just getting in shape. It becomes a lifestyle that enhances all other areas of life.

Many people who practice BJJ find themselves wanting to go further than just getting in shape, they want to look like they are in shape and feel like they are in shape too. They want the full package and BJJ can give it to them!

There are several reasons why BJJ is great for you physically, mentally and emotionally!

Makes You Socialize More

It’s great for your health, and you get to hang out with a bunch of cool people. Jiu Jitsu means “gentle art,” after all. You might be surprised at how many people are into it these days.

So when you sign up for a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class at a local gym or dojo, you’re signing yourself up for a social life. It’s easy to make friends in BJJ because the training partners are always changing and there is plenty of time to speak with each other between classes and during open mat times. There are lots of ways to make friends through BJJ in particular because there are tons of competitions that you can attend with teammates and friends who train at other locations.

BJJ is also a fun activity that you can do with your family members or significant other without having to leave the house!

Better Concentration and Memory

One of the most important benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is its ability to improve your concentration and memory.

BJJ promotes this by offering a tremendous amount of stimuli for your brain to handle.

It's not just about learning new moves and techniques, but also about doing them in a dynamic environment, where you have to think about your own actions as well as those of your opponent at the same time.

What's more, BJJ can help improve your memory both in the short term and long term.

In the short term, it helps you remember the moves you've just learned or practiced in class or during rolling.

But it also improves long-term memory by increasing neuroplasticity in areas of the brain that are responsible for long-term spatial memory.

Stress Relief and Relaxation

One of the best ways to relieve stress is through exercise, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu is just that. When you exercise your body releases endorphins into your brain; these are hormones secreted by the pituitary gland as they travel through the bloodstream, which then bind to opiate receptors in the brain. Once they have attached themselves here they create a feeling of euphoria which can last long after your workout has finished! Not only do these chemicals help with stress relief, but they can also help with depression, sleep disorders and even addiction.

Not only does BJJ relieve stress, but it also relaxes your mind and body. Many people use jiu-jitsu as a form of meditation because it allows them to focus on something else when life becomes too stressful.

I've been in your shoes. I know how hard it is to go from where you are (probably sitting in front of a computer or maybe a TV) to getting up and doing the work that's actually going to change your life. Jiu Jitsu is one of the hardest things I've ever willingly put in front of myself, but it's also one of the most rewarding. It will challenge everything you know about yourself and force you to dig deeper than you could have imagined possible. It may be hard, but in the end, it will change your life.
