Working toward your personal martial arts goals is an individual pursuit. But as unique as your path to your personal goals is, you can choose to pursue this path as part of a supportive martial arts community.
Being part of the Jiu-Jitsu community brings you:
- A sense of belonging
- Social support
- A place to share common interests
Let’s take a closer look at a few of the benefits of being part of this community:
1. A Sense of Belonging
Feeling like you belong to a community does a lot for your physical and mental health. This sense of belonging comes from establishing a place in your life where you can enjoy a fun activity with others. Jiu-Jitsu classes are made up of people who have various backgrounds and levels of experience. And it doesn’t matter what you look like or how long you’ve been practicing. A class is for you as much as it is for everyone else who shows up to train.
2. Social Support
When you train with like-minded individuals, over time this group will start to feel like your family. A family who is there to support you on your Jiu-Jitsu journey and offers encouragement when you need it most. At the same time, you’re able to provide support and encouragement to your training partners. This mutual social support makes it possible for you to make progress (at your own pace) together.
3. Shared Interests
A community forms over shared interests, goals, and intentions. Getting started with Jiu-Jitsu and sticking with it long-term introduces you to a group of people you immediately have something in common with. We all seek to improve, grow, and share our knowledge in a positive way, and ultimately make an impact on our community as a whole.
