5 Health Benefits of Jiu-Jitsu in Calgary

Training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or another martial art will improve your health. You don’t have to be in amazing shape to start; martial arts classes are an excellent workout no matter what your current level of fitness. Whether you are training for sport, self-defence or fun we will help you become the best version of yourself.

Increase Your Strength and Flexibility With Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu involves grappling, wrestling, joint locks and submissions. With Arashi-Do Behring’s progressive system, our students learn skills that build on one another. Though flexibility and mobility are not a huge point of focus, our students have a noticeable improvement in both areas. Increased strength and stamina is a benefit of working out. Training BJJ is an excellent workout and improves both physical strength and endurance.

Get Better Sleep With Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

As with any balanced workout that involves aerobics, strength building and control, regular performance of Jiu-Jitsu can lead to a better night’s sleep. In addition, exercising both the body and mind can have a calming effect, making it easier to fall asleep at night.

Reduce Stress With Jiu-Jitsu

It is understood that stress can have negative impacts on our lives. At Arashi-Do, our students learn how to cope with stress and how to centre themselves and control their minds, bodies and emotions. Successful management of stressful situations such as evaluations, competitions and symposiums can lead to our students being far better to manage other stressors in their lives outside of their training.

Additionally, training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Arashi-Do is great for bully-proofing children. Our Kids BJJ classes give children the tools they need to handle bullying situations should they arise. They are able to stand up for themselves or others and protect themselves in a safe way if required.

Have a Healthy Mind With Jiu-Jitsu

Physical exercise is good for mental health. In addition, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an excellent mental exercise as well. Often likened to physical chess, trying to figure out your opponent’s game plan while enacting your own is a unique challenge.
