Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ is a form of martial art that is gaining popularity around the world, not just as a form of self-defense, but also as a way to get fit and shed pounds. This is because BJJ is a great full-body workout that can help build strength, flexibility, and endurance. Also, it’s a great way to get in shape while having fun! In this blog post, let’s delve into the reasons how Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be a perfect part of your weight loss plan. 

BJJ is a high-intensity sport

Every movement in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, from grappling to rolling, requires you to use your entire body, which burns a tremendous number of calories in a short amount of time.

Regular practice of BJJ also leads to increased muscle mass, which helps to increase your metabolic rate. This means your body will be burning calories at a faster rate, even when you’re not actively training.

BJJ is a great stress relief

BJJ helps you to release endorphins which are the body’s natural stress-fighting chemicals. The martial art also engages every muscle group in your body and is a perfect exercise for those looking for an intense cardio session. Moreover, BJJ also provides an outlet to release your aggression and helps you channel your energy in a very positive way. 

BJJ improve the body’s flexibility and mobility

The nature of the sport requires a lot of physical exertion and movement. And while doing, it can improve the flexibility and mobility of your body. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu also involves a lot of grappling, rolling, and sparring, which can be a great addition to it as well. 

BJJ promotes enhanced self-esteem

At the end of every session, you were to learn a lot of self-defense skills that can contribute to the confidence you have in your abilities. BJJ also promotes a sense of accomplishment as you progress through the ranks and unlock new fighting techniques. 

BJJ fosters social connections

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great way to meet new people and start friendships. The sense of community and camaraderie you can get here will help you stay motivated in your weight loss journey and make sure that you are committed to your training. The bonus part is the practitioners and teachers you have are more than willing to go the extra mile to lend a helping hand and encourage you to put your best foot forward.
