Why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Self Defense?


There is no art out there better for ground-proofing your game than Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). If you are unlucky enough to be attacked, chances are your attacker is going to be bigger than you, stronger than you, and possibly more aggressive than you. The best way to prepare yourself is to learn the art that was invented for the very purpose of beating a stronger, larger, more aggressive opponent. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a sport utilizes leverage to submit opponents and control the fight. This is why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Long Beach is the best form of self-defense out there.

Not only will practitioners learn how to defend themselves from attacks from behind, from the front, and know what to do if the fight goes to the ground, but in the case that someone is punching and kicking them, they can take control of the fight and hold the attacker until someone comes to help them. At The Jiu-Jitsu League you can learn what to do in the event that you are caught off guard. The best part is that you can try it out for 30 days absolutely free. Don’t be unprotected! Learn the best self-defense art there is: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
