Jiu Jitsu BJ
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an art based in ground fighting. Along with this, it teaches takedowns, takedown defense, ground control, and especially submissions.
A Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter will look to take their adversary to the ground, control their opponent and depending on the situation look to finish the encounter by a submission hold or choke / strangle. Submissions / chokes refer to holds that either cut off an opponent’s air / blood supply (chokes / strangles) or look to take advantage and apply a lock to a joint (elbow/shoulder/knee/wrist/neck/etc).
Jujitsu training can increase self-confidence, mental focus, self-discipline, build balance and coordination, and reduce stress. These effects are potent, long lasting and can profoundly impact all aspects of the Jujitsu practitioner's life.
Jujitsu is a highly effective form of self-defense. Unlike the striking and kicking martial arts, the power of Jujitsu lies in its ability to harness and redirect the force of an attacker, allowing the practitioner to execute powerful techniques without possessing great size or strength.
Jujitsu is an excellent activity for improving fitness. A dedicated Jujitsu practitioner can expect to significantly improve strength, speed, endurance, muscle tone and flexibility, all in a vigorous and dynamic exercise environment.
Dedicated practice has profound benefits for adult students. Of course fitness and self-defense skills come to mind, but more important are the stress reduction and conflict resolution skills. Students find themselves more confident, more relaxed, and able to take on the day with a newfound ease.
