More than just a fighting system

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is more than just a fighting system or a means of self-defense, it is a tool that can be used as part of a plan for self-improvement.  The process of self-improvement is a daily endeavor that should be both physical and mental.  Jiu Jitsu meets both of those requirements, as it is an exhausting and rewarding activity physically, however it can be especially rewarding mentally.

One of the best ways of improving ones self would have to start with being honest with ones self. Jiu Jitsu is the perfect activity for self-awareness, as it is difficult to be dishonest due to the daily activity of sparing. In Jiu Jitsu you get to see that positivity leads to success and negativity leads to stagnation. The people that are selfish and are training to beat their training partners never seem to get better. Yet in stark contrast, those that are there to improve themselves and those around them seem to get better faster.

Overcoming Adversity

Physically Jiu Jitsu can be used as a means to improve ones health.  Improving ones physical health is a major step in self-improvement.  The daily practice of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will lead to a healthy body out of sheer difficulty.  A healthy body leads to confidence in perusing all challenges in life.  Jiu Jitsu is a daily challenge that puts one in the position to over come adversity on a daily basis.

Overcoming physical and mental adversity is one of the main tools that can be used for self-improvement. The Daily process of self-improvement is an endeavor that is on going and never-ending, however one that is constantly rewarding. With the help of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu one can take on the daily task of being the best version of ones self, everyday.
