A wall at Team Rhino Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Meridian painted with the rhinoceros logo Many Jiu-Jitsu academies are intensely focused on competing, making it appear less accessible for the average person who wants to start martial arts. And while high-level competitors are inspiring and exciting to watch, it’s also inspiring to see those who genuinely love the martial arts lifestyle and view it as a way to stay healthy and physically fit.

As we age, things tend to slow down. But slowing down doesn’t need to mean stopping altogether. Perhaps we slow down because we’ve become wiser and put more thought into how we spend our time. Or we’re more aware of what our bodies ask of us.

It’s Never Too Late to Start

Whether you’re a beginner or mastering a skill, it is important to stay curious and never stop learning. One of the many benefits of Jiu-Jitsu is that there is no limit or definitive age where you must either begin and or stop practicing altogether. Because of this, it is never too late to start a Jiu-Jitsu practice.

More than Self-Defense
