A Richmond Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class can help you control weight and put you in control of your own self defense. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu—BJJ—is a sport specifically geared to help the weaker opponent with good strategy planning and understanding of leverage moves, to overcome the stronger opponent who uses brute strength. You don’t need muscles to submit an opponent; you need skill. That’s what makes it an excellent tool for women who want to feel more in charge of their personal safety and also want a to become fitter.
You’ll burn up calories without realizing it.
Unlike many workouts that can be quite boring, you’ll never be bored and count the minutes until the class ends. The movements require your entire focus and your mind will always be working, looking for that advantage that can submit your opponent. The class is fun, so you’ll be more apt to continue, but it also is strenuous and works you harder than many other forms of fitness. You’ll start noticing clothes fitting loser and if you combine the class with changes in your eating habits, the weight loss comes even faster.
BJJ builds confidence.
Learning you can protect yourself is a huge benefit. It builds self confidence and improves self image. You don’t have to be a child to benefit from that. In fact, some mothers love taking classes with their daughters or sons to provide a bridge for conversation and a fun family night together. Young girls find it’s a great outlet and it can provide skills they’ll use the rest of their lives. Children develop focus and self control in these classes, skills that improve schoolwork and can give them the confidence that prevents bullying.
You’ll get a full body workout, which is good for all ages.
BJJ doesn’t just build strength, although that’s part of what you’ll gain. It also gives a cardiovascular workout that improves endurance. You’ll move in ways that improve both your flexibility and balance. It’s a wonderful complement to dance lessons and in some ways, very much like a choreographed routine, except, unlike dance lessons, you’ll learn how to protect yourself and your children will too.
Exercise can help eliminate the negative effects of stress by burning up cortisol and other hormones it creates. It stimulates the brain to create new chemicals, such as dopamine and endorphins, which help you feel good.
You’ll sleep better at night after exercising, which is beneficial both mentally and physically.
Children involved in extra curricular activities, often don’t have the time or inclination to participate in activities that cause trouble. BJJ provides a challenging sport that helps.
You’ll develop a mental attitude that’s cool, calm and collected. Rather than fight back, you’ll learn how to diffuse a situation before it gets out of hand.
