Practitioners can fight and defend from both standing and ground positions Jiu-Jitsu enables smaller/weaker people to succeed against larger/stronger attackers. Known as the “Gentle Art,” Jiu-Jitsu is the top choice for military and police forces. One can disable opponents without striking, weapons, or overt displays of violence. Jiu-Jitsu increases strength, endurance and flexibility. It’s fun and more engaging than the treadmill! Plus you’ll meet new lifelong friends on the mat that will challenge and encourage personal growth. Jiu-Jitsu is the “physical game of chess.” Being very mentally engaging, it pushes mind-body awareness. You can practice Jiu-Jitsu well into your senior years (we host a few students over 60). Increase your self-esteem and confidence – nothing brings more personal awareness than knowing how to defend yourself in any situation. It puts an end to bullying due to opponents having to reason with you. Being capable tends to deescalate common misunderstandings. Increase your memory and mental strength. Instruction, drilling, sequence mapping, rolling and over all training bring increased mental toughness. Jiu-Jitsu relieves stress and increases well being. IT'S THE FASTEST GROWING MARTIAL ART IN THE WORLD
