Ju-Jitsu For Adults
Scientific studies have proven that adults who take part have better stamina, strength, flexibility and muscle endurance.
Ju-Jitsu is a fun way of staying in shape – adults who take up the sport have less body fat than those with a more sedentary lifestyle.
Those who take up Ju-Jitsu can use their confidence and awareness of their surroundings as well as, if necessary, their balance, agility and skills to avoid physical confrontations by quickly recognising potentially problematic situations and preventing them from escalating.
Ju-Jitsu helps to reduce stress and lessen tension by giving an opportunity to relieve the anxiety which has built up during day to day life.
Ju-Jitsu make participants more productive – hard physical exertion releases endorphins which keeps the brain functioning well.
Because all people can take part in Ju-Jitsu, it’s a wonderful way for parents to share their children’s activities
The enhanced level of self-esteem which comes with taking part can help participants in their career and personal life, as they look at challenges in a more positive fashion.
Respect for Others
Ju-Jitsu has a strict set of rules which require the participant to be courteous to those around them. An adherence to etiquette is vital.
Forget social networks and text messaging – training develops focus and improves levels of concentration through rhythmic breathing exercises.
Physical coordination tends to improve rapidly in adults who take up Ju-Jitsu – many of the techniques which must be learnt are complicated, and require hours of practice to perfect.

Child obesity is an enormous problem throughout the world, and the epidemic is only set to get worse. Ju-Jitsu provides a great all over body workout, forcing participants to use muscles that are rarely exercised.
- Great for Social Skills
Social skills are a crucial aspect of childhood and a lack of it can really show and affect the child as they grow older. Ju-Jitsu with its team work and skill sharing, is one of the activities that encourages and promotes this in a healthy way.
Team work is something required in school, the workplace and everyday life. Training is impossible without effective team work, forcing them to develop necessary skills.

Ju-Jitsu is one of the few sports that requires as much listening and paying attention as it does physical activity.

The modern world presents many problems for concentration and focus, with distractions everywhere. Training allows the student to be in the moment and to focus fully on their learning
- Learning Respect
Getting children to understand the notion of respect for others and their elders is no easy task, but Ju-Jitsu certainly helps, emphasising its value.
