Defend-Yourself-through-Brazilian-Jiu-Jitsu-Believe-MMAThere are several benefits of participating in martial arts, like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. BJJ builds confidence, increases your fitness level, and improves your mental health, as well. Learning BJJ also gives you the skills to defend yourself in a threatening situation.

Here are a few ways that you will learn how to defend yourself through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:

1. You’ll Know What to Do.

BJJ gives you a foundation of skills and knowledge to defend yourself in a threatening situation. Because BJJ techniques are based on leverage and skill, even a smaller individual can defend against a larger attacker. In most martial arts schools, you’ll practice your skills with a partner. So you’ll have plenty of opportunities to apply what you have learned. And while we hope you won’t ever need to use these skills in real life, BJJ will prepare you to keep yourself safe.

2. You’ll Gain Confidence and Strength.

Knowing you have the skills to defend yourself against an attacker creates a significant confidence boost. At the same time, the increase in your fitness level gives you more confidence in your physical strength. Not only do you feel more confident, but you also appear more confident. When you physically appear more confident, you also make yourself less of a target, thus avoiding a threatening confrontation.

3. You’ll Learn in a Safe Environment.

At Believe MMA, we make sure that you train your skills and prepare for any situation in a safe and structured environment. We teach our students the basics of BJJ before they move on to grappling with another student. Once you feel like you’re ready, we incorporate more grappling into your classes. We always encourage students to ask questions or let us know when you’re struggling with a specific skill.
