Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is more than a martial art or sport. It quickly becomes a way of life for participants who choose to take their training seriously. Debating which form of martial art is the best is likely a futile effort, but there’s no one who will argue with you when you say that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides participants with an intense workout, superior physical fitness, and increased self-discipline.
Those who practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu enjoy losing weight, increasing their flexibility, and achieving an improved overall sense of wellness. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches you how to use your body as one unit. A heavy emphasis is placed on body awareness in this training, which translates into increased strength, flexibility, and mobility. Those heavily involved in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu know about the Gracie challenges, which was an attempt nearly 100 years ago to promote Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a superior form of martial arts training. Because Brazilian Jiu Jitsu combines moves that are commonly found in other types of martial arts that use grappling techniques, masters have the upper hand when the match hits the floor.
Because Brazilian Jiu Jitsu adopts strategies and techniques from all other forms of martial arts, combined with grappling and kickboxing, the physical benefits are much more readily seen than they are for those who study only one other type of martial arts.
