Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is fast growing into one of the most preferred fighting styles to be practiced within the various combative arts circles and, if you are a beginner who is just starting out in the world of the combative arts, or you are considering getting into the combative arts, BJJ should be very high up on your list of considerations, for a number of reasons.
Firstly, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the best forms of the combative arts, not just because it is one of the most effective fighting styles, but also because it has a lot of tradition and culture embedded into it, as the name suggests, so you will always be sure to be getting more than just another fighting style.
Secondly, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is not as widely spread as some of the other combative art forms, even though it is very popular and many people would love to be a part of it, so the level of specialization attained through those few and far-between establishments, that offer Brazilian Jiu Jitu, ensures that you will be learning BJJ the correct way — the way in which it was meant to be learnt.
This ensures an element of quality control which you probably won’t get in any other combative art form, except maybe Muay Thai, which also has a lot of tradition and culture embedded into it, but the difference between Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu then puts BJJ in a better position since through BJJ the playing field is leveled, which brings us to the next reason why BJJ should be at the very top of your list of considerations, if you are looking at getting into the world of the combative arts as a novice.
Thirdly, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu levels out the playing field completely, simply because of the way in which the rules of the combative sport are formulated. With Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, smaller, weaker opponents can take on bigger opponents, who are naturally stronger, because of the rules which govern the combative parameters, where the focus is more inclined towards ground-fighting and grappling, as opposed to making use of pure strength in combative striking.
For this reason alone, amongst others too of course, learning BJJ the correct way is of vital importance so, when one makes their choice of an establishment through which to learn their craft of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, they need to consider this little vital element.
As mentioned a little earlier on in this article, the relatively limited number of establishments offering BJJ ensures that those that do offer BJJ are of the highest quality, otherwise they would very quickly get exposed.
Learning BJJ the correct way ensures that the beginner combative artist enjoys a number of benefits to their craft, going beyond the ring and spilling over into other areas of life, such as improved mental functionality, spiritual grounding, synchronization of the body with the mind and that all-important issue of having a very powerful self-defense mechanism which stays with you wherever you go.
