Martial Arts in Mission Viejo
There are a number of reasons you might want to take a self-defense or martial arts class course like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) . The most obvious, of course, is that you want to be prepared to defend yourself or your family if you’re ever in immediate danger. This isn’t a paranoid assessment – there are real criminals and real dangers out there.
Another reason to learn BJJ is that it is an incredible workout! In training BJJ properly you will be challenged both physically and emotionally.
When you first started training in BJJ, you likely expected to get in shape and learn some of the slick submissions you watched your favorite UFC fighters execute on TV.
Little did you know that you would get totally hooked on the BJJ lifestyle and culture – a culture that includes forming close friendships and bonds with your training partners. The people you train with make it fun and exciting and as you gain new skills the fun and friendship grows.
Your friendships will start from partnering up for classes and then grow to hanging out after training.
After a year or so, you will find yourself watching getting together with your BJJ friends, going to birthday parties, traveling to tournaments together, and becoming best friends with the guys and gals at your gym.
Some people have golfing buddies while others have friends who love the same bands.
You and your BJJ buddies have jiu-jitsu. You will bond over trying out new techniques on each other, helping each other prepare for competitions, and sharing a niche interest that only you and they truly understand.
Let’s face it. You can’t exactly discuss heel hooks or Nate Diaz’s profanity-laced victory interview with Mike from Accounting.
So be grateful you found friends who share your love of BJJ and martial arts.
