Spring is a great time to plan out some goals for the coming months, including where you’d like to take your Jiu Jitsu training. Here are just three reasons spring is a great time to start (or get back into) Jiu-Jitsu.
1. To improve your fitness.
With so many different fitness options to choose from, how do you decide which one is best? One of the best things you can do for yourself and your fitness level is to choose an activity you enjoy. If running on the treadmill every day isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other options available to you (including martial arts). If you’re not sure what you enjoy the most, then why not try something new? Jiu-Jitsu classes provide a full-body workout where you’ll not only improve your fitness but you’ll also learn skills for self-defense. Jiu-Jitsu training targets multiple fitness elements, including endurance, strength, coordination, balance, flexibility, and agility.
2. To meet new people.
It’s easy to fall into a routine of walking in the gym with earbuds in and music playing. You’ll probably go through your workout with little to no interaction with the people around you. Maybe you smile and say hi to a few people, but perhaps not. If you’re looking for a way to meet some new people and get more social interaction, Jiu-Jitsu is a great option. Not only will you meet some people who share common interests, but you’ll also find a strong, supportive, and respectful community.
3. To take on a new challenge.
Whether you’ve been training Jiu-Jitsu for a while or you’re brand new to martial arts, Jiu-Jitsu is a great way to challenge yourself both physically and mentally. There are always new skills or techniques for you to learn and ways to improve. Finding a realistic challenge for yourself to tackle can boost your motivation and self-confidence while encouraging you to be excited about making progress toward a new challenge.
While spring is a great time to try something new, the truth is there is never a bad time to get started with Jiu-Jitsu. If you’re interested in getting started or back into Jiu-Jitsu, now is a good time to make it happen.
