Jiu-Jitsu, considered the game of “human chess” is more than just a sport, it is a call to the life-long learner. Distilled down, this ancient martial art utilizes knowledge of leverage, nerves and pressure points to subdue an opponent without weapons or displays of violence. But the art goes much deeper than that…
In the words of Emily Kwok, three-time IBJJF world champion, “Jiu-jitsu as an art allows us to practice all these intangible aspects of our lives and it helps fine tune ourselves in a way that nothing else has. It trains all the parts that are necessary. It teaches us to stay humble because there is always going to be somebody better than you or somebody who puts you in a bad situation that you won’t have an answer for. It teaches us how to handle those stressful moments so that we are more graceful under pressure.”
With a focus on a healthy mind and body, Jiu-Jitsu builds self-confidence, physical prowess, and mobility. Jiu-Jitsu provides an opportunity to participate in a vibrant community. Young and old, male and female, brainy and brawny– all come together under one roof.
Today it is the fastest growing martial art in the world…but enough talk. Let’s Roll.
