Why You Should Do Jiu Jitsu
After a 120 minute Jiu Jitsu class your body will clearly show signs of a good workout, whether it be a sweat soaked gi or down to a full body muscle stretch. From the warm ups to short circuit training, you will be able to expand & contract muscles you were unaware even existed. Even for experienced practitioners, this will be a great workout especially if they work with a heavy training partner or drill their techniques at a faster pace.
Meet New Friends & Build Confidence
Manchester Jiu Jitsu classes are a great way to meet new people especially of a similar age range. It could take time to warm up to classmates and vice versa, but you will make great friends. Jiu Jitsu allows you to work out stress and are constantly humbled on the mat.
As you continue to learn something new, meeting new people, pushing your comfort zone and learning to deal with stress are all parts of a recipe for building your self-confidence.
Learn A Self Defense
Jiu Jitsu is one of the most effective martial arts for self-defense where the smaller and less athletic individual can defend themselves against larger and/or stronger assailant. While traditional martial arts still require speed and coordination in order to execute kicks and punches, Jiu Jitsu relies on efficient techniques that are practiced in live sparring situations that are closer to simulating a one-on-one or two-on-one situation
