Martial Arts training is a significantly more effective fitness program than the generic gym routine.  Who wants to sit on a treadmill for hours when you can get the same cardio workout from a martial arts class like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Thai Kickboxing, or Krav Maga?  These self defense methods create a full mind and body workout. They also provide life long valuable skills you can share with your friends and family.  It boosts your overall energy level, and as a result leaves you feeling confident and accomplished.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses grappling techniques, choke holds, and joint locks to submit your attacker. To correctly pull off these moves you will find every muscle in your body working to its fullest capacity.  Thai Kickboxing uses fists, elbows, knees, and feet as focal points for defending yourself.  This art involves a lot of American Boxing and a lot of kicks to get that cardio started. Krav Maga is the most realistic and practical form of self defense to date.  It derives from Israeli military tactics and will be sure to teach you to defend yourself in any threatening circumstance.  From positioning your toes, to ducking your head, every inch of you is tested and trained for success.

Never tried Martial Arts before?  Don’t worry, the classes are broken down by experience level so that every one can learn their respective skills at their own speed.  The conditioning within the classes are highly effective regarding weight loss and personal fitness.  You may walk in thinking you have learned it all about fitness, but no matter how much you already know, you will leave sweaty and intellectually satisfied.   Every class you show up to, you are ultimately strengthening your body and your brain.

Within learning your new self defense skills, you will see a great difference in your self esteem and self confidence.  Walking down the street may not be as scary if you have been training hard all week.  All of the social activity in the Dojo may also lead to improved activity in your social life.  You may find that you have that extra boost of confidence to ask that special someone out.   After training hard, sweating, and working with your friends at the Dojo your feeling of accomplishment will shine far after you leave.  The improvements in social life are so significant you not only look better but you truly feel better.

Time to stop that same boring routine and start taking Martial Arts.  The skills you learn in a Krav Maga class may save you or your friends from a street attack.  The conditioning in Thai Kickboxing will make you sweat, and the self confidence will make you shine.  The friends you make in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu may last forever.  So what is stopping you?  Step out of your comfort zone and into the Dojo.  Do yourself a favor and try a class today!

Refining Your BJJ Game

Training in BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) is a lot of fun because there is so much variety to it. There are many different ways in which you can develop your self-defense and fitness program into the practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jistu. This variety of BJJ beginnings help create a unique competitive edge as you progress within the art.  For example, depending on how you start BJJ, you may naturally be good at a specific element of it.  Some competitors may become known for their guard, while others will have a fantastic top game.  From there, different styles of practicing the art may arise.  For example, you may prefer grappling with Gi practitioners, or even with no Gi specialists, or you may even join in with all those who just have a talent for the world of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts). Every BJJ artist holds a different journey and therefore becomes their own unique BJJ competitor.

Again, there is a lot of choice available to you within the art and you can develop as a BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) competitor in many different ways. This is definitely a good thing but there is a drawback that can sneak up on you if you are not careful. That drawback would be falling into the trap of accumulation.

What is accumulation? It is the art of being a technique collector. As the name suggests, being a technique collector refers to learning an enormous amount of moves on a superficial level. Refining the material and learning about the fine points never occurs. The nature of trying to learn something new all the time makes it next to impossible to refine material. Basically, “refining” means performing the same material over and over again to know, and understand it on a deeper level.

Why do so many beginners wish to accumulate so much? It is just the exciting nature of being a beginner. Everyone that starts out in BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) wants to see more and more of the art.

There is also a lot of peer pressure that comes from wanting to buy the top new DVDs offering the classic moves of a top BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu). Certainly, viewing such material is a smart move. However, trying to memorize it in a week and then moving on to new material a week later just simply is not be the best strategy to follow.

Since refinement requires a lot of repetition, many will wonder if it is a boring process. The answer is no because the deeper your understanding grows of the art, you will find the deeper the power grows within your take downs and submissions.  You will learn there is always something new to learn about a particular move, and refining that move you will create an entirely new power within yourself. An arm-bar could take a lifetime to study and still only the surface of the art will be scratched.

If you want a little motivation for refining your BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) game, all you need to do is accept the fact that all the top players do this to be at the top. This is why you don’t see sloppy fighters throwing everything at an opponent. Rather, you will see fighters with solid, tight games that are focused and their performances are very controlled and specific. All that comes from refinement. So, refine your BJJ game and become a top fighter!
