Everyone is totally unique but most of us share the same common desires, one of which is the desire to be fit and healthy. Everyone’s journey getting there is riddled with successes and failures, and even when you reach your ultimate goal, how do you maintain your level of fitness and strength with new and exciting challenges that keep you engaged?
From virtual trainers on apps, to gyms, to team sports to the great outdoors; there is no shortage of options available. The challenge is finding the right (fitness) partner that will hold your hand throughout your journey and keep you on the right track. So what is the best option for you?
The practice of Martial Arts is a physical, mental and often emotionally enhancing form of training, but the options are varied and plentiful and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the relatively ‘new kid’ on the block.
Fernando Junior, multiple times BJJ Champion and Professor discusses the merits of BJJ, and shares his top five reasons why he thinks it’s the perfect choice if you’re courting the idea of getting fit and healthy in 2020, even as a Martial Arts novice.
1) Self Defense
BJJ gives you the confidence and skills to defend yourself if physically attacked. It promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier attacker by using proper technique and leverage.
2) Anyone can practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Unlike many sports, BJJ doesn’t discriminate any body type or fitness level. Virtually anyone of any size, age or gender can practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
3) It’s a great workout
The very nature of BJJ, makes it a great full body workout where you improve your cardio, strength, coordination, flexibility and stamina, just to name a few.
4) Life long lessons
The lessons you learn on the mat can be applied to many aspects of your daily life and the challenges you face at work, home, or at school.
5) It builds character
BJJ exposes you to a roller coaster of emotions that not only makes you stronger physically but mentally and emotionally as well.
