Brazilian Jiu-jitsu has proven itself as an effective form of self defense and is a stable for all professional MMA fighters. But one of the biggest benefits for students of martial arts are the fitness gains. Unlike traditional forms of exercise, Jiu-jitsu incorporates use of your entire body for nearly all techniques. Upper body, lower body, arms, legs, back and core…Martial Arts training will engage and challenge your body from head to toe. But the benefits of Jiu-jitsu for your fitness are not limited to just cardio and muscle tone. Martial arts is great for a variety of fitness goals. It’s also the perfect way to relieve stress.
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for Strength and Agility
Many traditional forms of strength and fitness training involve resistance IE lifting weights. While the strength benefits are very real, the downside to this form of training is sometimes an imbalance in muscles and tight joints. Jiu-jitsu is great for strength gains but because you are using your whole body together, you will remain agile and limber throughout your training. This is why martial artist’s can develop incredible strength and physiques without loosing their flexibility. In Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, many of the techniques require you to bend and twist in uncommon ways. But, with enough practice, you will make these movements a part of your practice and gain the movement and agility of a black belt. All while getting into the best shape of your life.
