Brazilian jiu-jitsu malta, Why should you learn ?

 Brazilian jiu-jitsu malta can provide a number of benefits, both physically and mentally. Let’s see what those are.

It is a great form of self-defense

When it comes to self-defense, there are many different martial arts to choose from. However, Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) is uniquely suited to provide a powerful defense against an attacker.

BUT In reality , Self defense does not exist !!! any self-defense seminar for a few days is a blatant lie , and gives a false sense of security !

You need to be training for years to be able to not freeze under the raw reality and violence of an attack , as in BJJ you actively spar 30 minutes every class, it means that on a month , you spar almost 6 hours , on a year 70 hours !

Only those hours of real sparring will allow to be able to control yourself, the adrenaline dump and defend yourself (or run away, the best technique in selfdefense)

In BJJ, practitioners use leverage and technique rather than brute force to overcome their opponents. As a result, even smaller individuals can effectively defend themselves against larger assailants (with years of practice !)

In addition, BJJ training teaches students how to remain calm and think clearly in the face of conflict. This is essential for staying safe in a real-world altercation. All of these factors make BJJ an excellent choice for anyone looking to learn self-defense.

Brazilian Jiujitsu, It can help you lose weight

If you’re looking for a workout that will help you lose weight, tone your body, and improve your self-defense skills, Brazilian jiu-jitsu may be the perfect activity for you.

This martial art is a great way to get in shape while learning how to defend yourself in a variety of situations. And because jiu-jitsu is a relatively low-impact activity, has no strikes and it’s gentle on your joints and muscles, making it an ideal workout for people of all ages and fitness levels.

In addition to its physical benefits, jiu-jitsu can also help you develop focus, discipline, and confidence. So if you’re looking for a workout that will provide you with multiple benefits, Brazilian jiu-jitsu is an excellent option.

BJJ can help you relieve stress

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s more important than ever to find ways to relieve stress. For many people, exercise is the perfect solution. It gets the heart pumping and the endorphins flowing, helping to forget about the day’s worries.

However, not all forms of exercise are equally effective at reducing stress. In fact, some can actually end up causing more stress. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is one form of exercise that has been shown to be particularly effective at reducing stress levels.

Jiu-jitsu is a martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. Unlike other martial arts, there is no striking involved, which means that it is much less likely to cause injuries. And because jiu-jitsu requires split-second decisions and quick reflexes, it helps to sharpen the mind and improve focus. 

As a result, people who regularly practice jiu-jitsu often find themselves better equipped to handle stressful situations both inside and outside the gym. So if you’re looking for a way to reduce stress, Brazilian jiu-jitsu might be the perfect solution.


BJJ can improve your cardiovascular health

Martial arts are often thought of as a way to get physically fit, but they can also offer other benefits. One such benefit is improved cardiovascular health.

Studies have shown that martial arts training can help to lower blood pressure and increase heart health. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a particularly good choice for those looking to improve their cardiovascular health.

This martial art focuses on grappling and ground fighting, which can help to raise the heart rate and improve muscular endurance.

In addition, Brazilian jiu-jitsu teaches practitioners to control their breathing, which can also help to lower blood pressure. As a result, learning Brazilian jiu-jitsu can be a great way to improve your cardiovascular health.



Main differences with other martial arts

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art that emphasizes on throws, pins, ground fighting and Submissions. It was developed from Traditional Judo in the early 20th century by Japanese master Jigoro Kano, who blended elements of several different styles of jujutsu an even older Martial arts. 

BJJ was then moved in Brazil through Japanese immigrants, and the Gracie Family adapted the judo/jujutsu to the violent environement of Rio de Janeiro, even going against the principles of Judo and Traditional martial arts by challenging other martial arts, and going to other Dojos/ academies to prove that their craft was more powerful 1 to 1. Some of those Challenges were particularly violent to prove their points.

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu places a strong emphasis on grappling and groundwork, and it teaches practitioners how to control and submit an opponent using joint locks and chokeholds.

The art has been popularized in recent years by Brazilian fighters such as Royce Gracie, who used BJJ to great success in the early days of the Ultimate Fighting Championship winning the three first editions , the rest was history as after the victoriees every MMA fighter began to train in BJJ.

While BJJ shares some similarities with other martial arts, there are also several key differences. For one, BJJ practitioners wear a gi, or uniform, while most other martial artists do not.

Additionally, BJJ matches typically take place on the mat rather than in a ring or cage, and they are often divided into rounds of five minutes each for white belts, 6 minutes for blue belts, 7 minutes for purple belts, 8 minutes for Brown Belts and 10 minutes for Black belts.

Finally, while strikes are allowed in the self defense aspect of BJJ, they are not the focus of the art, as they are in styles such as karate or kickboxing, mostly they are never strikes/ punches/ kick in the sport aspect of BJJ, focusing all the training on Throws, Pins, Control and Submission when most of the other arts have no idea about the ground fighing , These differences make Brazilian jiu-jitsu a unique and effective martial art.
