Many Jiu-Jitsu academies are strongly focused on competing, making it less accessible for the average person to learn martial arts. And while high-level competitors are inspiring and exciting to watch, it’s also inspiring to see those who genuinely love the martial arts lifestyle and view it as a way to stay healthy and fit.
As we age, things tend to slow down. But slowing down doesn’t need to lead to stopping altogether. Perhaps we slow down because we’ve become wiser, and we put more thought toward how we spend our time. Or we’re more aware of what our bodies ask of us.
Never Too Late
Whether you’re a beginner or mastering a skill, it is important to stay curious and never stop learning. One of the many benefits of Jiu-Jitsu is that there is no limit or definitive age where you must either begin and or stop practicing altogether. Because of this, it is never too late to start a Jiu-Jitsu practice.
More than Self-Defense
Jiu-Jitsu offers more to its practitioners than just learning self-defense. You learn patience, how to read a situation, communication, problem-solving, balance, and so many other useful skills that you can take with you on but also off of the mat.
