When you look for a dominant martial art the first to come to mind is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. When you look back at when the UFC first started with Royce Gracie going out and being able to beat opponents almost twice his size using leverage and technique. It did more and more to make people want to learn what this little guy was doing. I know I was one of those people, so I set out on a mission to learn more about Jiu Jitsu. Royce Gracie is around one hundred eighty pounds and was able to beat humongous wrestlers using his technique. After the UFC you started to see more and more tournaments and different things pop up were you can test the different martial arts. As far as ground fighting martial arts, Jiu Jitsu always came out on top. Basically the ultimate self-defense and ground fighting system. Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that doesn’t discriminate based on age, you can do Jiu Jitsu as a kid all the way up to an eighty year old, nine year old person.
The exercise and fitness that you get from Jiu Jitsu is unparalleled because your using aerobic and anerobic energy. It encourages fat loss, builds strength and power, develops mental toughness, improves your cardio and conditioning. The best thing about Jiu Jitsu is you don’t have to be fighter to enjoy it, it is great stress relief to help you to deal with the day to day drama of life and doesn’t get boring. Jiu Jitsu is for everyone and literally anybody can do it.
Another fun thing about Jiu Jitsu is that its basically human chess. Your out there on the mat working your technique against another person in a literal chess match. your trying to think two, three, four moves ahead to beat them to the technique your trying to apply as they are trying to submit you, sweep you and finish you. So it’s basically like chess but the stakes are a lot higher and the workout is unparalleled. So its a thinking person’s martial arts too, its not just where you go out and punch the air and do things that you can’t really test. With Jiu Jitsu, every time you grapple against another person your testing what you can do and what Jiu Jitsu can do. Does this technique work or doesn’t it work.
The benefits of Jiu Jitsu go on and on but to me you know you’ll get the most amazing workout, learn the best self-defense, how to defend yourself on the ground which most people don’t know how to do. It is also a fun workout that stimulates your mind, improves your body and makes you an all around better person. So do yourself a favor and look for a Jiu Jitsu school in your area. Stop in and talk to the instructors, take a tour of the facility, look and see what they have to offer. You’ll see a lot of Jiu Jitsu schools open up but are they really any good? Make sure the instructor is an IBJJF certified Black Belt. So make sure you go out and do your research but definitely start training Jiu Jitsu.
