Many young people are enthusiastic about learning Jiu-Jitsu.
When asked why they wanted to learn Jiu-Jitsu, we find self-defense as the most dominant reason.
However, after months of practice, we discover that the lifestyle of people who take Jui Jitsu lessons takes a better turn.
Their opinions about life and others are resharpened through the process in very significant ways.
Ask people how Jiu-Jitsu has helped them in life and you can expect to hear volumes of life-touching experiences.
Below are some of the life benefits some young Jiu-Jitsu shared with us.
Losing Is Learning.
Nobody likes to lose, but it is after we lose that we often begin to contemplate how we can do better next time.
Jiu-Jitsu mirrors real life.
You win some battles and you lose some.
Rather than feeling dejected or self-pity Jiu-Jitsu teaches you to brace up and accept defeat as a path you must cross to reach victory.
As your heart warms up to this idea you begin to see yourself react positively even to situations that may weigh others down.
Every Leader In Every Field Began As A Loser With A Dream.
Maybe you are finding it difficult to chase your dreams due to some past setbacks, Jiu-Jitsu helps you understand why you need to lose to win.
A proper examination of excellent Jiu-Jitsu artists shows a perfect record of wins and losses.
You can then apply this philosophy to your day job and business.
You begin to see yourself accelerating towards whom you’d like to be.
Fears Are Meant To Be Faced.
Few things are as intimidating as having to conquer an opponent that is twice your body size and twice heavier.
However, in Jiu-Jitsu, you can win against the odds by using effective techniques.
You learn that fear is a normal response of the mind to a potential threat and it does not yet mean defeat.
You can go ahead with this newfound confidence to tackle many issues in your personal life that you are scared to face.
When you develop higher confidence, your world changes in quite amazing ways.
You are no longer bullied by your past or present experiences.
To Get Good, You Must Be Willing To Fail And Get Up To Do It Again, And Again, And Again.
How many times in life did we want to throw in the towel but kept on going?
As we grow older, we tend to stop achieving.
We stop growing and stop learning new things.
Jiu-Jitsu allows us to continue.
It gives us a chance to fail until they succeed.
Every day we get to test ourselves with new data, new partners and new levels of training.
We have days that allow us to taste victory, but they are also matched with days we have to face adversity.
Jiu-Jitsu scrapes off our ego and allows us to learn.
Every belt level has new expectations.
Every role has new challenges.
There is no ceiling to how much we can continue to improve.
We tap; we go again. We fail; we go again.
It’s not the results that matter.
It is who we become through the process.
The benefits of Jiu-Jitsu are so inspiring.
It is not about the fight, but more about a healthy lifestyle.
We all stand to benefit immensely from Jiu-Jitsu.
