Jiu-Jitsu is extremely effective for women's self-defense and for children to protect themselves against other overly-aggressive kids (bullies).


Benefit 2: Physical Fitness


Jiu-Jitsu training is extremely taxing on the body and will stimulate weight loss and increase your overall fitness level at an unbelievable rate. These positive results include, but are not limited to an increase in flexibility, cardiovascular efficiency, strength, and an increase in overall energy.

Jiu-Jitsu training has an unbelievable effect on the mind due to the many difficult positions and situations you will find yourself in and have to fight out of during training. Through repeated perseverance of these scenarios, you will become mentally tougher and capable of facing problems head-on. In addition to the building of mental toughness, training Jiu-Jitsu has a major effect on stress relief, confidence building, the ability to focus better, and an increase in problem-solving skills.
