What Jiu Jitsu means to me

Written by Djavan Coleman; Jiu-Jitsu Student/ 4-0 MMA Fighter

Jiu Jitsu MMA Athlete Djavan Coleman BJJTo me, Jiu-Jitsu is more than just a hobby or a sport, it is a lifestyle and a lifelong pursuit.  I love Jiu-Jitsu for its purity.

If you don’t train enough, your opponents and training partners will expose you for it. Short cuts rarely work in Jiu-Jitsu. All the little details matter. We put a premium on accurate and efficient technique.

Jiu-Jitsu is one of those things in life that require practice and perseverance.

Success is usually gradual and incremental. The difficulties tend to test us and keep the act pure.

It’s also a great life parallel.

I also love Jiu-Jitsu for the challenges it presents.  It is a mental, physical, and an emotional challenge. You must be in good physical shape, but Jiu-Jitsu requires us to think.

Jiu-Jitsu teaches us to master our emotions. It teaches us to not let little things control us. Through these challenges, I think Jiu-Jitsu makes people better, on and off the mat. It is a great teacher and if someone is humble and open minded, they can grow and learn from it.

Jiu Jitsu is all about learning

In a competitive setting, my favorite thing about Jiu-Jitsu is that you never, truly lose. If you win, cool. If you lose, you get a great blue print of your weaknesses. You get to go back to the gym with that information and make yourself better for the next battle. We either win or we learn.

On the mat, I love the creativity of Jiu-Jitsu. I get to create, as I roll. I get to cultivate an identity and express myself through my technique. I love expressing and practicing different techniques and styles. Jiu-Jitsu is so intricate and it’s really cool to see that everyone rolls in their unique way.

The Jiu Jitsu experience

Jiu-Jitsu has given so much to me. It’s given me friends, family, a competitive outlet, dreams, goals, and maybe even a career. I love the journey of Jiu-Jitsu. I am grateful for all the great people that I’ve met and the great experiences that I’ve been lucky enough to have. I look forward to having many more.
