There are a number of ways to look at the benefits of partaking in martial arts like BJJ. For adults, we’ve looked into the health benefits of practicing BJJ, but there’s another aspect of grappling that is just as, if not more, important: self-defense.
Know What To Do
BJJ offers the knowledge and know-how to understand the best way to defend yourself in a given attack situation. Offering ways to escape from different holds, strikes to use to disarm an attacker, and more, the lessons of BJJ can apply to a number of unwanted attack scenarios. Simply having the information available and practicing the proper moves can mean the difference between safety and harm.
Confidence and Strength
When you have the knowledge of how to defend yourself against an attacker and the physical form of someone who has practiced strikes and grappling week after week, you walk with a new confidence and strength that can bring on significant changes. Not only are you making yourself less of a target with your confident air, but you’re also more apt to handle a situation in a way that prevents further harm to yourself or others.
