2. Build confidence
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu could be somewhat out of your comfort zone, and that is the exact reason why it will kick your confidence sky-high. People who seek to improve themselves will find it outside of the space that they already know. Doing something you haven’t done before can be exciting and a real confidence boost. Try out jiu jitsu to expand your boundaries!
3. Learn a new skill
Perhaps you have experience with martial arts, perhaps you don’t. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to most newcomers a completely new world, which makes it a great and exciting challenge to start with. At Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy Amsterdam, the class is divided between beginners and advanced, to ensure enough time and room for questions for beginners. You will learn new techniques and movements step by step.
4. Meet new people
Busy with college, work or both? Day-to-day life provides us with ample time to meet new people, let alone see them on a daily or weekly basis. Jiu Jitsu classes are a great way to meet new people, because doing jiu jitsu together generates contact in a unique way. The team at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy Amsterdam is very open to newcomers and welcomes people from all levels. Besides that, BJJAA is very active at tournaments. Together with your teammates, you will visit places, compete, coach each other and go home after a long day. This way, great friendships are established. Most of us have been members of a regular gym and we know the routine. After a while, for many people, this turns into a monotonous routine that can get very boring. There is also a feeling of individualism and isolation when it comes to going to a regular gym. There is not the same sense of community and interaction with others like there is in a Jiu Jitsu class.
5. Clear your mind
One of the greatest things about jiu jitsu, is that there is no way of thinking about anything else when you do it. This is a wonderful way of leaving behind everyday stress and worries. Your body is active, yet you give your mind a break from everything. This is a great stress-reliever. What’s more, training jiu jitsu increases endorphine production, which makes you feel more happy and satisfied after each training session.
