Martial arts has always been used for athletes to compete via combat, but is also a fantastic way for people to exercise. One of the most popular martial arts today, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), is a multidimensional martial art that can really put your body through a tough work-out. Unlike standard exercise routines, you don’t have to exercise each individual muscle group; instead, you merely spend 20 minutes “rolling” (the term used for practicing, or sparring). After just 20 minutes of rolling with a partner and engaging in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, your entire body will have received a work out that would have otherwise taken you hours.

Because most of BJJ is spent on the ground, you will end up putting lots of weight and pressure on your feet, knees, and thighs; especially if you are in top position. On the bottom, you may think that you have it easy being that you can lay on your back, but this is not the case. High-level BJJ practitioners do not in fact lay flat on their back. As relaxing as it may seem, this is a very bad flaw in technique. You want to be perched up, at least slightly, in order to spring into action. This requires a lot of core strength sourcing from your abs to remain in ready position when on your back.

In other positions it’s your arms that will get a work out. Much of BJJ comes down to “hand-fighting” which is the strategical battle that goes on between you and your opponents hands. Constantly fighting your opponent’s upper-body strength while attempting to maintain proper wrist control is a very physically demanding task.

Even though most BJJ matches are not spent on the feet, it does physically pose equally as intense. You will often tie up with your opponent in search of takedowns that could come from various wrestling techniques, or perhaps a variety of different Judo throws. Whichever means you seek out to attempt to get your opponent on the ground will prove physically demanding. It’s not easy throwing something your size and weight around; especially when it is fighting back.

BJJ provides an all-in-one package for those wanting to combine core workouts with upper-body and most importantly, a lot of fun. BJJ not only exercises the body, but also the mind. Most BJJ matches are fought as if they are chess-matches; it comes to sharp technique and proper positioning that wins or finishes matches. If you’re looking for a martial art that will benefit your body in multiple ways, BJJ is an excellent choice.

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.

Do you spend hours at the gym just for mediocre results? 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!
