Falling into Jiu-Jitsu: Sign up for Adult Jiu-Jitsu this Fall

The summer celebrations came and went, and now is the perfect time to fall into a new routine!

Adult Jiu-Jitsu is back in September and October, and if you’ve been waiting for a sign to start a new hobby, this is it! Our Adult Jiu-Jitsu class is designed for beginners with little or no experience. In this class, you will learn basic moves, positions, and the fundamentals of Jiu-Jitsu. Alongside our experienced instructor, you will learn step-by-step techniques and build a strong foundation in jiu-jitsu.

There are many benefits of practicing Jiu-Jitsu, and it’s never too late to start! The physical benefits are similar to those reaped from other martial arts. Due to its highly rigorous nature, it’s no surprise that Jiu-Jitsu helps with physical conditioning. You will get a cardio, stretch, resistance, and breath workout in a typical practice.

In addition to improving strength and condition, Jiu-Jitsu teaches you self-defense after several years of practice. Who doesn’t want to be prepared at all times? If nothing else, Jiu-Jitsu teaches you proper falling techniques to avoid injury. Hopefully, you’ll never have to defend yourself from a bad guy, but at least you’ll be able to show those pesky stairs who’s boss the next time they try to trip you up.

You may already know the physical benefits of practicing Jiu-Jitsu, such as burning calories, improving flexibility, and building strength. However, there are multiple mental health benefits as well. Jiu-jitsu teaches patience and discipline due to the importance of timing and rhythm in the Jiu-Jitsu technique. Jiu-Jitsu also helps reduce stress, which is vital to building patience and discipline.

The benefits of learning Jiu-Jitsu are undeniable. If the physical and mental advantages didn’t convince you, then keep in mind that learning a new skill and perfecting a hobby is fun! If nothing else, give yourself the satisfaction of challenging yourself in new ways. You may even meet some great friends along the way.

Adult Jiu-Jitsu starts on September 8 and runs through October 27. Practices are held on Wednesdays from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Champions Club Premier Studio. Register here.

See you on the mat!
