Benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Among all the martial arts disciplines, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ is especially good for kids. This martial art was designed to give smaller, weaker people an advantage in fights against stronger opponents. By understanding technique and using an attacker’s inertia against them, even a child can win a fight against a larger bully – which is not true of every martial art.
