Have you thought about starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Salem MassBJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Salem Massachusetts) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position.  It uses joint-locks and choke holds to force an opponent to submit and also teaches you how to escape encounters on the ground.  Today, BJJis practiced for fun, self-defense or sport by men and women, hobbyists, professional fighters, military, and law enforcement alike.

It is no surprise that with the onset and extreme success of UFC and Mixed Martial Arts, the popularity of BJJ(Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Salem Massachusetts) also increased.  Nowadays, in addition to having a competition aspect; BJJ is also taught as a realistic tool for self-defense.

Here are a few tips to those who are thinking about starting BJJ/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  How you can successfully “survive” the first few months and have a positive experience to obtaining your black belt.

The most important tool you need when starting any martial art, especially Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, is a positive attitude.  Having the wrong attitude off the bat will either make or break your BJJ experience.  The first class will probably be a blink and it’s over because of all the excitement; however, the excitement will soon turn to frustration because BJJ is a complex martial art.   Positive thinking will help you go a long way.  You will not be amazing right off the bat… it’s a long journey in learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu so by keeping your attitude adjusted and mind open, you will learn the techniques correctly.  Which is the strongest lesson learned in BJJ: it’s all about technique.

BJJ is a combat sport.  The techniques used could be harmful in some cases but we practice them in a safe environment.  There is a safety mechanism called “tapping” for exactly this reason.  Tapping is letting know your training partner that you submit.  It keeps you and your partner from getting injured.

But knowing when to tap isn’t simply enough. You also need to learn to become a good training partner. One thing to keep in mind while practicing martial arts like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is that you’re responsible for your partner’s health and learning process as much as yours.

Last, but certainly not least, is hygiene!  BJJ is a very close-quarters martial art, and good hygiene is extremely important for both safety and mental reasons.  Keeping good personal hygiene is a must. So make sure your fingernails are trimmed and that your Gi isn’t the equivalent to sticking your face in a dirty gym bag.  One way to get unpopular extremely fast is to come to the class with a dirty Gi and smelling of onions and cigarettes.

No matter how good you are on your when fighting on your feet, you must be equally proficient on the ground in order to have the most realistic self-defense techniques.  Especially when dealing with a bigger, stronger opponent, or with someone who can close the distance and force grappling or wrestling, or might just be better than you when standing.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Salem Massachusetts, shows us that no matter how small you are, you can be able to gain a dominant position on your opponent no matter how big they may be.

Did you know that 80-90% of street fights end up on the ground and almost ALL rapes end up on the ground as well?  So, relying only on your standing skills to defend you is not only naive but is also dangerous considering the statistics.  Fact of the matter is: if you don’t know how to defend yourself on the ground–you don’t know how to defend yourself.  The importance of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to know how to defend against a ground attack and to be able to escape back to your feet if it were to happen.

BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Salem Massachusetts) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position.  It uses joint-locks and choke holds to force an opponent to submit and also teaches you how to escape encounters on the ground.  Today, BJJ is practiced for fun, self-defense or sport by men and women, hobbyists, professional fighters, military, and law enforcement alike. A lot of people take BJJ for fun, or for the sport element of training in martial arts, but the practical street elements are there if the situation were to arise where you needed to get back to your feet if taken to the ground.

In a “perfect world”  the best way to defend yourself would be to avoid dangerous situations all together.  Unfortunately, that will only work to a certain point.  It’s almost impossible to avoid risk all together; since dangerous situations can develop with little to no warning and could be from the people whom you would least likely expect.  I know the facts are scary: but they are true.

When looking for the correct program to learn self-defense; tradition martial arts won’t work as well as combative martial arts.  At Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts, our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu  program is both a practical and realistic form of self-defense.  In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Salem Mass, we teach you how to defend yourself both on the ground and standing.

FACT:  If you don’t know how to defend yourself on the ground– you don’t know how to defend yourself!
