Top 5 benefits of Jiu Jitsu
Self Confidence: Jiu-Jitsu is a journey and along the way you will discover a feeling of trust in your own abilities, qualities, and judgement. This new found confidence becomes a part of who you are, on and off the mats, adding the strength to face everyday challenges head on!
Physical Health: Being healthy is a lifestyle; training Jiu-Jitsu will push you physically each session until you have adapted to the lifestyle and can continue to progress by putting yourself outside of your comfort zone.
Mental Health: Training takes focus and creates such mental awareness that it becomes forced meditation. You will learn to persevere when giving up is so tempting, naturally molding you into a calmer and mentally resilient person.
Realistic self-defense: Our sparring gets intense. The effectiveness of that intensity alone cannot be matched by 90% of other martial-arts that don’t practice sparring. We practice takedowns defense, clinching, getting to and controlling dominant positions, and submitting other skilled athletes.
Goal Minded: Jiu-Jitsu has no end to the journey, but the lifestyle gives meaning and direction. Whether your goal is competing or working towards the next belt, new goals are always presenting themselves for one to set, work towards, and accomplish.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that teaches a smaller person how to defend himself against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. The Gracie family, the founders of BJJ, modified judo and traditional Japanese jujutsu to create the art. It contains stand-up maneuvers, but it is most famous for its devastating ground-fighting techniques. Gaining superior positioning—so one can apply the style’s numerous chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations on an opponent—is the key in BJJ.
BJJ’s roots began in the early 1900s. Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese judoka and no-holds barred prize fighter, moved to Brazil— here he befriended his tour guide, Gastao Gracie, and grew so fond of him that he taught his martial art to Gracie’s son, Carlos.
In 1925, Carlos and his four brothers opened the first jiu-jitsu school in Brazil. Carlos’ younger brother, Helio, adjusted the techniques to suit his small and due to a medical condition, weak frame, thereby creating Brazilian jiu-jitsu as we know it today. In the early ’80s, Helio’s son, Rorion, planted the seeds of BJJ in the United States, where the art has become immensely popular.
