Brazilian jiu-jitsu

The benefits of brazilian jiu-jitsu

Known as a gentle art (also known as the "suave art), Brazilian jiu-jitsu has many benefits for the body and mind. We've written a list of reasons why you should try this martial art. 

The art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu was developed based on the idea that it is possible to overcome a stronger opponent using techniques and levers against their strength. The effectiveness of Brazilian jiu-jitsu techniques has been widely demonstrated in the challenges taken on by the Gracie family and the first mixed martial arts tournaments. 

Statistically, it has also been demonstrated that in real-world combat, a large number of fights end on the ground, where Brazilian jiu-jitsu gives a significant advantage.

Also known as "Arte Suave" (which literally means the "gentle art" in reference to the flexibility and technique used instead of strength), Brazilian jiu-jitsu can have numerous benefits for physical health and mental well-being. Read on to find our list of good reasons why you should try this sport.


The main benefits of jiu-jitsu:

- Develops strength, endurance, flexibility and coordination.

- Helps lose weight and improve physical condition (strengthens muscles, develops cardiovascular and respiratory capabilities).

- Develops self-confidence (also teaches self-defence techniques).

- Helps reduce stress and anxiety.

- Helps improve reflexes.

- The lifestyle that accompanies the practice of Brazilian jiu-jitsu also has health benefits thanks to stretching and encourages healthy eating.
