Out of all the Martial Arts and self defence styles out there, why would one choose Brazilian Jiu Jitsu? Well to start with, Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a proven form of self defence. Back when the UFC had little rules and was unsanctioned Royce Gracie famously won several UFC titles showcasing the effectiveness of the Gracie Jiu Jitsu over many other forms of martial arts. That success has led the US Army, FBI, Secret service and many other elite military and law enforcement agencies to make Gracie Jiu Jitsu part of their training packages for their people. With 95% of all street fights ending on the ground Gracie Jiu Jitsu’s focus on grappling and subduing a resisting opponent makes it a great choice for those wishing to learn how to defend themselves.
Martial Arts also help many students develop core values such as Discipline, Courtesy, Integrity, Self-Confidence and self control. Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a great tool for children and Adults to develop these attributes which will help them to handle everything that life throws at them like, exams and deadlines. Learning to handle stress and the sometimes uncomfortability of life is one often overlooked benefits that Gracie Jiu Jitsu has to offer.
