Benefits of Jiu-Jitsu for women

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that induces a sense of endurance in women with its self-defense techniques. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu helps women avoid dangerous situations and empowers them with simple escape techniques. It is designed to help a woman save herself from her attacker, whether she is on her feet or on the ground.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu involves submission and ground fighting techniques. It focuses on gaining a dominant position over your opponent with the help of techniques such as chokeholds, joint-locks, compression lock, etc. Most Mixed Martial Arts need the practitioners to be physically strong to face a heavy-weight opponent. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu needs more of body mechanisms rather than strength, speed and weight of the person practicing it. They can therefore be used effectively by anyone of any age, size, strength or level of physical fitness.

A common way for men to win a fight over women is to knock her down to the ground and control the whole situation. The ground fighting techniques of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu focuses on acting against your opponent with your back on ground plus taking the advantage of the right situations and poses of the opponent.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu strengthens women physically and psychologically. It inculcates in them the belief to stand for themselves as well as maintain peace of mind. Apart from these benefits, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides women the similar benefits as men. It makes them physically more flexible, keeps them fit and above all, it's a great fun. In the training sessions, they are made to face new challenging situations that keep up their spirit. Moreover, it is a great stress buster. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu demands a lot of concentration to be put during training sessions and hence, enables the practitioners to relieve stress.
