When it comes to choosing a workout that will have a positive effect on your health, you have many options. Have you ever considered martial arts, specifically Jiu-Jitsu?
Jiu-Jitsu training is for both fitness and fun. You’ll get into great shape while having a blast.
Fun for Anyone
Jiu-Jitsu is for anyone – kids and adults, men and women. It may appear to be a male-dominated sport, but that doesn’t mean that women shouldn’t get involved. It’s also easy to assume that Jiu-Jitsu is only for those who want to compete. But Jiu-Jitsu is not just for competitors; it’s for all levels of experience.
Full Body Workout
Not only is Jiu-Jitsu a full-body workout, but the result of your training is an increase in functional fitness. Rather than getting good at doing a shoulder press or a leg curl, you’re building fitness by using various parts of your body together. Functional fitness translates into other areas of your life by making everyday activities (like cutting the grass, lugging groceries up the stairs, or chasing your dog around the park) easier.
Rather than going to the gym and running for 30 minutes on the treadmill, Jiu-Jitsu can be just what you’ve been looking for to mix up your workouts. Not only could it be a new activity for you, but the workout itself is also much more mentally engaging than some traditional workout classes.
You have to continually think about the moves that you are learning. And the challenge of figuring out how to defend yourself while applying the skills that you have learned so far can be motivating and exciting. Plus, there are always new techniques and skills to learn.
