Have you ever considered training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
If not, now might be the time. While Jiu Jitsu sometimes lacks the spectacle and raw athletic benefit of striking, there’s a reason that it’s become the most popular martial art in recent years, and it’s not just due to its association with elite-level mixed martial artists. Jiu Jitsu is, without equal, the most utilitarian, bang-for-your-buck martial art you can train, with a wider set of benefits than you can expect from most physical activities.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been described by some as a full-body chess match, or a debate in a language that uses the body to speak.
Descended from Judo, “The Gentle Way,” Brazilian Jiu Jitsu prioritizes use by weaker opponents against stronger opponents. Jiu Jitsu centers around the use of wedges and leverage to put its practitioners in advantageous positions, from where they can neutralize or “submit” their opponents. Against untrained individuals, strength disadvantages can nearly disappear, and during training or against equally skilled grapplers, the sport becomes a fast-paced scramble to outwit your opponent.
For people seeking to train MMA, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a must-have weapon in your arsenal, and for anyone even passively interested in self-defense, Jiu Jitsu will put you on top where other martial arts would leave you the underdog. There’s no other sport where so little will take you so far.
