Why-Women-Should-Train-Jiu-Jitsu-10th-Planet-Jiu-Jitsu-Las-VegasJiu Jitsu has become more and more popular. It may seem to be dominated by men. However, Jiu Jitsu is a martial art for everyone – all ages, sizes, and fitness levels. And, more women are picking up Jiu Jitsu.

Jiu Jitsu is an opportunity for women to learn self-defense, improve fitness, and become empowered. You’ll get in great shape, but it’s about so much more than looking good. Women who participate in Jiu Jitsu tend to have a lot of fun and develop strong friendships with other athletes.

Whether your goal is to learn self-defense, improve your fitness, or to feel more empowered in your life, Jiu Jitsu offers women a unique opportunity to achieve these goals. There are many reasons why women should train Jiu Jitsu; here are just a few of those reasons:

Self-Defense

If you’re interested in learning self-defense, a Jiu Jitsu practice will provide you with a foundation of skills that could help you defend yourself in a threatening situation. Rather than relying on a one-day self-defense seminar, Jiu Jitsu teaches you how to protect yourself by taking the fight to the ground. It doesn’t matter how big or small you are, or how much strength you have. Jiu Jitsu is all about using leverage and proper technique.

Fitness

If you’re looking for a way to change up your existing workout routine, Jiu Jitsu is a great option. In a single class, you’ll get a mix of both aerobic and anaerobic training that will improve your fitness. You’ll also increase your flexibility, balance, and coordination. And because you’ll be working your whole body, you’ll notice some carryover of your fitness gains in your daily life.

Empowerment

Learning something like Jiu Jitsu creates a special sense of empowerment. Not only do you physically feel strong, but you also become stronger mentally and emotionally. Your individual improvement is what matters the most; more than comparing yourself to others or worrying about what you look like. It’s all about what you’ve learned and what you’re able to apply during your practice. The more you learn, the more confident you’ll become.
